What’s the Best Building for Operations & Maintenance?
Companies serving nearly every industry need buildings for their ongoing operations. Whether those operations entail a production line, warehousing, equipment maintenance, or myriad other industrial tasks, the right building is needed to accommodate every aspect of the work. In this modern world where versatility, low costs, and energy savings are key factors, traditional brick-and-mortar buildings are quickly being left in the past. At Big Top, we design and build modern fabric structures that are customized to provide the best benefits for the unique production needs of our clients.
Permanent buildings require concrete foundations, which not only can drive up costs but also severely limit where the building can be constructed. A fabric shelter on the other hand can be anchored to nearly any surface, even ecology blocks and shipping containers, making them a more realistic option for when operations are conducted out in the field.
Furthermore, a fabric structure from Big Top can be designed for mobility. This means that the building can not only function dynamically with telescopic maneuverability but can also be relocated around your property or shipped to an entirely new location. It goes without saying that a brick-and-mortar building, once erected, cannot be moved.
A Big Top fabric structure uses fewer materials than permanent buildings and can be constructed much faster — at a rate of 2,500 square feet per day — minimizing costly production downtimes. And, because our buildings are considered equipment by the IRS, you may enjoy tax advantages.
The translucent fabric roof of a Big Top building allows plenty of natural sunlight to illuminate the interior, minimizing or eliminating altogether the need for and associated costs of artificial lighting.
Protection for Your Staff, Materials & Equipment
The roof of your new fabric structure is formulated to block 99.95% of harmful UV-A and UV-B radiation. This will ensure your employees and materials are protected, and it’ll maximize the lifespan of the electronics and paint job of your equipment.
Moreover, thanks to the UV-reflective roof, the interior of your building will remain at a consistent temperature that is on average 15 degrees cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter than the outside temperature, keeping your personnel comfortable as they perform equipment maintenance or other duties.
One example of how our shelters are used for equipment maintenance is as sunshades for the military and private aviation companies. Our sunshades can be installed directly on the flight-line to protect the aircraft and maintenance crew from the damaging effects of sun exposure.
Big Top’s fabric structures can be built to nearly any size and can be outfitted with a variety of accessories, including ventilation, bay doors, and durable flooring.
