Although they aren’t meant to stay in place forever, temporary enclosures are just as durable and long-lasting as their permanent counterparts. The primary difference between the two is that temporary structures are much easier to assemble, and you can build them with speed and efficiency in mind. At Big Top, we understand that when you need a temporary enclosure built on your jobsite, you need it fast. However, you may be wondering how difficult it is to install a temporary enclosure on your jobsite—we’re here to give you some insight.

Easy Setup and Disassembly

As previously mentioned, we specifically design our temporary enclosures so they’re easy to erect and disassemble at your convenience. Temporary fabric structures come with two main components—the steel skeleton and fabric membrane. With only a few materials needed to assemble the structure, installation is quick and efficient. A smaller-scale structure can take as little as a few hours to erect, whereas building a larger structure might need around three to five days, depending on size and requested customizations.

Minimal Labor and Machinery

The team we send out to install your temporary structure is relatively small, although the actual size of the crew will depend on the size of the structure you order. With that, one reason many people opt to use temporary structures is to save on labor costs. With minimal labor, machinery, and materials required to erect a temporary enclosure, you can save a lot of money in comparison to putting up brick-and-mortar buildings. With a temporary enclosure, you get all of the durability and space of a traditional building, but you will spend far less time and money on assembly.

Adaptable Foundation

Typically, when people ask how difficult it is to install a temporary enclosure on a jobsite, they’re referring to the foundation as well as to the overall structure. Most buildings need concrete foundations in order for builders to secure them properly; however, this costs extra money and prep time, which isn’t always feasible in terms of schedule and budgeting. Fortunately, we’re able to secure our temporary enclosures to a variety of foundations, including asphalt, dirt, gravel, ballast blocks, and more.

Installation Process

The installation process consists of four simple steps. First, we’ll send a professional out to your jobsite to survey the area and review the scope of the project with you. We’ll then send out a crew to erect the tubular steel trusses that make up the structure’s skeleton. After that, the crew will overlay the fabric membrane, tensioning it across the steel frame. Once the crew erects the main structure, they’ll anchor it to your foundation of choice.

Overall, installing a temporary enclosure on a jobsite is quick and easy—and not only will you save time, you’ll also save money. When you work with Big Top Manufacturing, you can rest assured you’re working with some of the most knowledgeable professionals in the industry.
