Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9844211A1] A portable building (1) which can be rapidly assembled and disassembled and flat packed for easy transportation without containerization comprises a base platform (2); side walls adapted to releasably engage with the base platform (2) along the sides thereof; gable end walls (6,7) adapted to releasably engage with the base platform (2) across the width thereof; a pair of pitched roof sections (14, 15) each having a width which does not exceed half the width of the base platform (2), and a bridge section (16) adapted to couple the pair of pitched roof sections (14, 15) together. The sections of the building are generally formed of metal skinned-insulation panels (20) supported on a framework (30, 31, 32), and all sections can be interlocked together without use of screws or bolts. The bridge section (16) of the roof provides a platform for water supply tanks, air filtration or scrubber units and the like.
