Are Canvas Buildings a Good Investment?
Canvas buildings – otherwise known as fabric buildings – offer many great benefits that traditional buildings made of metal or wood do not. For example, fabric buildings don’t require a permanent concrete foundation. This means they don’t require any specialized construction crews for installation, which can help save money when setting one up at your job site. Additionally, because they don’t need to be anchored to a concrete foundation, canvas buildings can be disassembled and moved from place to place. Because fabric buildings are portable, they can be reused countless times, making them a sound investment in the long run.
Buildings made of fabric have many other great benefits, too. For example, they can be covered with translucent fabric that allows natural light to shine through the structure. This fabric can reduce dependency on artificial light, help to lower monthly energy expenses, and even add points to your LEED score. Plus, fabric buildings can often be claimed as equipment, which can provide tax benefits that traditional buildings made of metal or wood do not qualify for.
At Big Top Fabric Structures, we’ve been making canvas buildings since 1979. All of our structures are custom-made to order, so our team will work closely with you to ensure that your building is the size you need it to be and has all the features you need it to have, such as HVAC, lighting, and flooring. We also offer engineering services for those in areas that require adherence to building codes for wind load, snow load, and seismic activity.
