How a Customizable Fabric Building Can Meet the Needs of Your Company

Fabric BuildingThere are countless reasons why a business would need a weatherproof shelter to keep their operations running. These can range from storing equipment and materials to sandblasting and painting to providing personnel with a lunch room or safety meeting facility. Rather than shell out the expense of constructing a permanent building, companies across nearly every industry turn to Big Top to have a fabric building custom designed for their needs.

A Cost-Effective Alternative

In order to have a permanent metal building constructed, you have to hire a contractor and pay for the materials. This can take a serious bite out of your budget. But, when you partner with Big Top for a fabric building, you’ll be able to save on costs. Our shelters cost less to build than permanent buildings, do not require a concrete foundation, and can be constructed without hiring an outside contractor – we can provide all the necessary training so that your own crew can perform the installation, or we can provide a turnkey installation package to construct the building for you. In addition to lowering upfront expenses, our structures can help you save on costs because they are:

Energy Efficient

The translucent fabric roof floods the interior with natural sunlight, minimizing or even eliminating the need for artificial lighting and driving down your energy usage.


Should your operations need to relocate, your fabric building can be disassembled and shipped to the new location, saving you the costs involved with dismantling and rebuilding a permanent structure. They can also be conveniently stored for future use.

Considered Equipment by the IRS

You can deem your Big Top fabric structure as equipment with the IRS, which may allow you to receive tax benefits.

A Weatherproof Solution

A fabric building from Big Top contains a galvanized steel frame and will hold strong against any type of weather so that your operations can run uninterrupted. The fabric roof is formulated to block 99.95 percent of harmful UV-A and UV-B radiation, which will not only protect your staff and extend the lifespan of your equipment’s electronics, but will also help to maintain a pleasant interior temperature that is on average 15 degrees cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter than the outside temperature. If the building codes in your area require engineering for heavy wind and snow loads, we will ensure your structure meets those unique requirements.
