Companies that require some extra space can expand their activities significantly by leasing or buying a shed. The versatility of a large span, much storage space, high ceilings and a tailored layout make a shed the perfect space for a whole range of business activities. Are you planning to lease or buy a shed, warehouse or storage space? Then be sure to ask your real estate agent for advice to ensure a smooth search and transaction.
When leasing or buying a shed, quite a few elements need to be considered. Always bear in mind the purpose for which the shed will be used, how much capacity you actually need and what the overhead and/or additional costs will be. A storage space with a steel structure and sandwich panels, for example, is highly flexible in that extra windows, doors or gates can simply be added as required. A white coated steel deck, metal beams and columns, also create a wide open feeling.
You should always consider in advance the facilities your shed must offer to enable your business to grow optimally. For example, a shed can easily be divided into sections, but you must, of course, always take into account the structure of the shed. Make sure that your shed has a minimum clear height of 6m in order to ensure an ideal growth and sales potential in the future, even if you don't need it right now. Higher sheds are suited for a variety of business activities and are most popular in the market. For sheds with a high in- and outflow of goods or sheds to be used for logistics purposes, a concrete structure is generally recommended to protect the shed in case of a collision.
If you want to buy a shed as an investment, you are well advised to carefully check the energy values and regulations. If a heating and/or cooling installation is to be installed, the warehouse must be EPB compliant. Extra insulation means an extra cost, but companies with a long term vision will certainly appreciate its usefulness. Ex-post insulation is expensive and impractical, so it's best to choose a shed that already meets, or even exceeds, the applicable standards. Do you need an air conditioning system for your business activities? Bear in mind that an uninsulated shed makes the property more difficult to sell afterwards!
