Big Top Protects a Construction Company from the Sun

Fabric Building

Big Top’s Buildings Keep Employees, Materials & Equipment Safe from the Elements

Construction is a field of work that requires labor and equipment that can be weather sensitive. When rain, sleet, snow, or hail hits, sometimes it can postpone priority tasks or damage valuable equipment. Even when the weather
is nice, construction businesses must be conscious of heat, humidity, and the UV index, as these are all factors that can not only effect the lifecycle of equipment but also the productivity – and health – of those who work outside.

Fabric BuildingThe ideal solution is to have a structure that can protect valuable assets and employees from the elements. In many cases, the need for this type of structure is specific to any given business, which means that the building needs to be adaptable so it can meet a specific set of requirements. At Big Top Fabric Structures, this is our specialty; as a custom manufacturer, we make buildings that are designed to accommodate many different specific needs. Our fabric buildings have been used for a variety of applications by businesses within the construction industry and beyond.

We can look at an example that highlights the usefulness and custom nature of our buildings. A company with a 50 million dollar bulk material handling project based in Portland, Oregon, found itself in need of a structure to provide protection from the elements. After partnering with Big Top, their construction team now has a covered fabrication yard that is immediately adjacent to structural and mechanical work fronts. This not only protects the construction team and its equipment from the elements, but also speeds up the team’s workflow because of their proximity to the work area. Additionally, the shelter serves as a staging ground for the early procurement of material and equipment, which helps to mitigate cost escalation.

Big Top is a custom manufacturer committed to making fabric buildings that improve the bottom lines of our customers. For more information about our products, contact us today.
