BIG TOP HELPS GLOBAL DESIGN FIRM PROTECT MAJOR WATER TREATMENT OPERATION

An ENR Top 500 Design Firm, our client is the leading global natural and built asset design and consultancy firm providing design, consultancy, engineering, project and management services to their clients. The firm was selected to design and build a major water processing facility for biological nutrient removal, filtration, UV disinfection and bio-solids treatment to ensure the required effluent quality is maintained for an area with a substantial population. They needed a dependable, long-term solution to protect their client’s valuable equipment and water reclamation and purification processes from the elements, and they needed it quickly.

A PURELY BRILLIANT SOLUTION FROM BIG TOP

The firm made the right move by turning to Big Top. Big Top is accustomed to working with aggressive deadlines. We designed our custom manufacturing process to provide the highest quality structures to meet virtually any deadline. We were able to custom design a spacious, eco-friendly fabric structure that would cater to their specific necessities. It was large enough to contain their equipment, and strong enough to withstand the bitter cold and snow of winters in the Northeast. And if their needs change, the structure can be dismantled and put into storage, or can be relocated as a whole unit via a wheeled suspension system or crane.

With a wide range of custom heating, cooling and ventilation systems to keep the interior of the fabric shelter optimally controlled, their equipment could be protected and operate with maximum efficiency, and personnel now had a comfortable, spacious clear span working environment.

Big Top fabric structures have been tested and proven successful at withstanding even the harshest weather conditions. Wind gusts exceeding 100 miles per hour, heavy rains, as well as dense snow are not a problem.

Even with an aggressive time frame, Big Top enabled the firm to provide their client with an ideal environment for their biological nutrient removal, UV disinfection and bio-solids treatment; ensuring that the high level of quality is maintained at all times.
