Creative structures

FROM big sporting events and exhibitions to multi-use temporary buildings, Neptunus has it covered.

Temporary structures from Neptunus can be adapted for a vast range of semi-permanent uses as well as providing facilities for major international sporting events, exhibitions, product launches and conferences for blue-chip clients and Government agencies.

Neptunus services some of the world’s top business names such as Ford, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Canon, Vogue and MTV – as well as high-profile events such as Royal Ascot and the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. The company also builds facilities for prominent global organisations including NATO and the United Nations.

Evolving technology, originally developed for the events and exhibitions sectors, means Neptunus can offer bespoke solutions to a vast variety of commercial operations requiring fast, flexible and cost-effective space options.

State-of-the-art temporary structures that look and feel like permanent buildings are today being utilised for a diverse range of semi-permanent requirements. These include supermarkets, showrooms, sports halls, theatres, offices, conference centres, warehouses and temporary airport buildings including terminals and baggage handling facilities.

Structures come in all shapes and sizes with the creative design team constantly developing new, dynamic and eco-friendly styles to provide space solutions for every conceivable use. Millions of pounds are invested each year in developing new products to meet the demands of an international client base.

Recent high-profile assignments delivered by Neptunus from their UK headquarters in Swan Valley, Northampton, include a temporary building for the prestigious Trinity College, one of the constituent colleges of Oxford University.

Trinity required a versatile temporary structure that would serve as a library reading room and multi-functional room for two years. It will then be transformed into a kitchen, dining room and senior common room for the final year of the three-year contract.

The temporary building, which incorporates toilets, offices and auxiliary spaces, was needed during the construction of a new permanent building on the campus.

Meanwhile Neptunus’ temporary structure technology remains popular with the automotive sector.

When HR Owen, the UK’s leading luxury automotive retail group, expanded their network with a new improved Bentley sales centre in Hertfordshire, along with a new Lamborghini showroom, the company required two state-of-the-art permanent buildings in which to display some of the world’s most prestigious cars.

While the new permanent HR Owen Bentley and HR Owen Lamborghini showrooms were being designed and constructed, the company turned to Neptunus for a fast and cost-effective short-term space solution – providing them with a flexible and stylish temporary showroom where customers could view Bentleys and Lamborghinis side-by-side while the new-build programme was completed.

It took an eight-strong crew of Neptunus technicians just five days to build HR Owen’s temporary facility in readiness for the internal fit-out.

As the semi-permanent side of Neptunus’ business continues to flourish, the events and exhibitions arm also goes from strength to strength. 2020 sees the company providing temporary structures for the Six Nations Rugby at Twickenham, at Royal Ascot and, for the first time, to the Fever-Tree Tennis Championships at Queens Club in June.

Neptunus has been awarded a five-year contract by the Lawn Tennis Association to build a state-of-the-art flagship hospitality structure for the Fever-Tree Championships from 2020. Neptunus won a competitive tender process after impressing the LTA with its ultra-modern, high-tech Evolution technology.

The two-storey Evolution II structure, which covers an area of 3,450 square metres, will form the Fever-Tree South Pavilion. With the look and feel of a permanent building, it will have internal and external mezzanines and incorporate a 90-metre long wooden decked roof-top garden with panoramic views across Queens Club.

Originally founded in Holland over 80 years ago, Neptunus remains a family-owned business with an enviable reputation for innovation, reliability and quality.
