Temporary fabric structures have helped businesses across the globe meet their production and space needs without requiring them to shoulder the expenses of constructing or renting a traditional brick-and-mortar building. This makes running a business more flexible and affordable. And while many people think of these temporary structures as buildings only used in the military or other hyper-specific industries, this isn’t the case. In truth, there are many reasons why a business might need a temporary structure that goes beyond its stereotypical image.
Most commonly, temporary fabric structures are used as temporary warehouses for rapidly growing businesses or businesses that are currently transitioning from one place to another. Renting a warehouse may be too expensive for your time frame, especially if you need a lot of space and have to rent multiple brick-and-mortar warehouses. These temporary structures provide protection from the elements and minimize the need for expensive electricity due to the natural lighting they provide.
On the topic of storage, you may need to warehouse certain items during specific times of the year. While some things may be able to remain outside during normal weather conditions, others cannot and can degrade or become destroyed in cold, rain, wind, or snow. A temporary structure can be built and taken down, customized, and adapted to your needs, whereas traditional buildings cannot.
Temporary Office or Breakroom
Constructions jobs and other outdoor work sites are vulnerable to the elements, and workers may need a place to take refuge or simply take a break and relax. Additionally, a new or evolving business may need a temporary home base to handle operations before moving into a new building. Temporary fabric structures provide shelter for businesses to operate if they don’t have an office or are waiting for one to be constructed.
Large events like art shows, concerts, rallies, and the like need shelter for a number of reasons. Constructing a new building to meet the needs of every new event simply isn’t viable for every business, nor is it always necessary. Temporary structures can be equipped with HVAC systems, wired for lighting, and customized to include insulation.
Emergency Medical Facilities
Sometimes, when disaster strikes and hospitals are inundated or overwhelmed, temporary medical facilities need to be created. Not every area has empty buildings fit to be used as medical facilities. In fact, you may have seen many of these temporary structures during the recent COVID-19 pandemic.
The main reason why a business may need a temporary structure is that unforeseen circumstances arise, and flexibility is needed. That’s where we come in. Big Top Manufacturing specializes in erecting industrial storage tents and customizing them to suit your business’s needs.
