Increase Efficiency in Construction With Fabric Structures

a fabric structure on a construction siteRunning a successful construction project means having to juggle myriad expenses from both value- and non-value-added activities. Minimizing the latter is essential to staying on budget and schedule. However, there are no shortage of issues that can impact a construction site and grind production to a halt. A key way for construction companies to avoid a production drain caused by unruly weather, lengthy waits for material deliveries, lack of work space, and other inefficiencies on the construction site is to have a fabric structure installed.

Big Top Fabric Structures designs and fabricates custom fabric structures to help construction projects run more efficiently. Our temporary buildings help solve productivity issues that are common in the construction industry. These include:

Weather Conditions

Weather phenomena in the local region can impact production by sending your workers running for cover when a storm breaks out. A fabric structure installed over the worksite will protect your personnel and keep them comfortable so that production can continue uninterrupted.

Engineered for Strength

Our fabric shelters are supported by an industrial-grade, galvanized steel frame that can withstand extreme weather, and they can be engineered for heavy wind and snow loads. We can also add lightning protection for the safety of your crew.

A Comfortable Interior

When the sky is clear, the sun can also be an issue for keeping staff productive. Left exposed, workers will need to take frequent breaks to cool off and rehydrate. The fabric cover of a Big Top temporary building is formulated to repel 99.95% of UV-A and UV-B radiation, an impressive level of thermal performance that helps to maintain a pleasant interior temperature that is, on average, 15 degrees cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter than the temperature outside. Your employees will be comfortably sheltered from the sun and require fewer breaks, helping keep production on schedule.

Lengthy Material Deliveries

Construction sites that are in remote locations can suffer from lengthy delays in material deliveries. Big Top’s fabric structures can be installed directly on the worksite, providing easy access to materials and equipment. In fact, our buildings do not require a concrete foundation and can be anchored to nearly anything, including dirt, asphalt, and shipping containers. And because they can be erected quickly—at a rate of 2,500 square feet per day—installing your shelter will have minimal impact on production.

On-Site Materials & Equipment Storage

Convenient access to materials and equipment will greatly reduce lengthy delivery delays, and the UV-reflective cover will protect your assets from damage from the elements. We can equip your building with bay doors for security and durable flooring that can support the weight of heavy equipment.

On-Site Break Rooms

Our fabric shelters can also be used as lunchrooms and safety meeting facilities, where construction crews can safely gather without having to leave the site.

Turnkey Installation Services

Though we can train your staff to install your fabric structure, Big Top offers turnkey installation services so that you can keep your employees focused on the tasks at hand.

Lack of Workspace

Fabric structures from Big Top can be used in myriad ways to improve efficiency on construction sites. No matter the application, our buildings provide safe and well-lit workspaces that do not rely on artificial lighting. Plus, our structures are mobile and can keep pace with the changing needs of the project.

Safe Workspaces

Big Top’s fabric structures are naturally ventilated to safely remove fumes and hazardous airborne particles, and they provide proper containment for all blasting, including Black Beauty abrasives.

Naturally Illuminated

The translucent fabric cover of our shelters allows sunlight to flood the interior, eliminating the needs for artificial lighting and related expenses.

Mobile Solutions

To accommodate changes in production, your Big Top building can be moved intact around the site. When the work is done, the structure can be disassembled and shipped to the next location.
