Cost-Saving Benefits of Fabric Structures
In the past, when a business was looking to expand its operations with a new facility, the owner would have to invest in constructing a new building. Today, business owners have another option that works much better for their bottom line: fabric structures. Temporary buildings can more easily adapt to changing business needs, and they offer significant cost savings. At Big Top Fabric Structures, we specialize in designing custom fabric shelters to meet the specific needs of our customers and fit their budget.
Our fabric structures can save on costs when compared to constructing a new building because they:
Are Built With Fewer Materials
The basic structure of our temporary buildings consists of a rip-resistant fabric roof supported by a durable frame made from industrial-grade galvanized steel. And while there are numerous accessories that we can include in the design, such as HVAC systems, flooring, bay and personnel doors, and more, our fabric structures require fewer materials than traditional brick-and-mortar buildings and therefore cost less to build.
Can Be Deployed Quickly
Big Top’s fabric structures can be nearly any size, ranging up to 80 feet high, 174 feet wide, and virtually any length. No matter how big or small of a fabric shelter you require, it can be erected quickly, at a rate of 2,500 square feet per day. A swift deployment minimizes any downtime the project may cause, allows you to use the new space sooner rather than later, and further helps to keep you on budget.
Do Not Require a Specialized Contractor
Deploying one of our fabric structures will not require you to hire an outside contractor. Big Top can provide training and guidance for your team to handle the assembly or, for the utmost convenience, we can provide turnkey installation services so that your staff can focus on their day-to-day tasks.
Our temporary buildings not only cost less to construct than traditional buildings, but they also deliver impressive savings on energy usage, making them less expensive to use for your business operations.
Illuminated by Sunlight
The fabric cover of our structures is translucent and will allow enough sunlight to shine into the building to fully illuminate the interior. This unique benefit means you can minimize your dependency on an electric lighting system, helping you save on energy costs every day.
Natural Climate Control
The fabric cover also delivers exceptional thermal performance by repelling 99.95% of UV-A and UV-B radiation. The result is an interior that remains at a comfortable temperature that is, on average, 15 degrees warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer than the temperature outside. By eliminating the need for artificial climate control, our fabric structures can help you reap an even bigger return on investment with significant energy savings. And thanks to this superior thermal performance, your staff, materials, and equipment will be well protected from the damaging effects of sun exposure.
Easily Adaptable to Changing Business Needs
Our fabric structures are not permanent installations and can therefore keep pace with the evolving needs of your business. Your temporary building from Big Top can be moved around your property intact with a crane, and it can be disassembled and shipped to a new location, saving you from having to invest in another building down the road.
