How a Fabric Structure is More Cost-Effective than a Permanent Building

Fabric StructureA fabric structure can help keep your organization in budget if you’re currently looking for a warehouse, production area, assembly hall, or any other large enclosed space. That’s because a temporary canvas building costs far less to build and takes less time to install than constructing a permanent structure made of wood or metal. And, the savings don’t end at installation – because the fabric in a temporary building is translucent, meaning it allows in natural light, there is less need for electric lighting and there is less of a burden on your HVAC system to maintain a comfortable temperature. A canvas structure can even contribute points to your LEED score.

Another benefit of a fabric structure vs. a permanent one is portability. Most canvas buildings can be maneuvered around your property using a specialized tool, such as a crane or jack-and-wheels, and can be disassembled for shipping to another location. Plus, they can be anchored to any type of foundation, making them far more versatile than a permanent installation.

When searching for a fabric structure, don’t settle for a one-size-fits-all product. A reputable provider should be able to custom tailor a structure to your exact specifications, from height and width to including any number of accessories, such as flooring, insulation, doors, gutters, and more. Check for a modular design that can be easily added onto in case the needs of your organization require future expansion.
