Overview

The client, a Film Studio based in the UK, contacted HTS tentiQ as they needed a large temporary structure to build film and television sets and for the construction of large props.

HTS tentiQ had supplied structures to the Film Studio on previous occasions after searching online for a suitable supplier. The studio wanted to work directly with the manufacturer as the resulting temporary building would be more cost-effective and the turnaround much quicker than working with a supplier.

Requirements

The Film Studio worked in collaboration with the skilled team at HTS tentiQ and selected a large temporary building from the LX-Series. The aluminium-framed temporary industrial building benefits from quicker manufacturing and installation times and is easily demountable and relocatable. To facilitate easy access for the large sets and props, HTS tentiQ installed 5 insulated roller shutter doors.

The final temporary building met the following specification:

  • 25.00m wide x 70.00m length x 6.20m side height
  • Thermo Insulated roof system with translucent white PVC covers
  • 60mm insulated walls
  • 5 insulated roller shutter doors
  • 5 single personnel doors
  • External guttering and downpipes

The LX Series’ insulation properties, functionality and durability made it the ideal option for the set construction facility.

Solution

The Film Studios were operating to a time schedule so the LX Series was manufactured and installed quickly, despite the added pressure of lockdown restrictions owing to Coronavirus. After completion, the Film Studio has added an attractive mezzanine floor and offices and has gone on to produce sets for a number of high-profile films and television series.

Temporary buildings offer an ideal solution for television and film productions as they often need to relocate their buildings. The client is planning to install further temporary structures on the same site.
