Seven Reasons a Fabric Structure Is the Best Choice for Your Next Construction Project
Construction companies often look to build all the facilities they need for a project directly on the jobsite. Doing so makes operations much more convenient—and cost effective—as it means not having to transfer equipment to and from an offsite storage facility or commuting to and from an office space throughout the day. However, erecting permanent buildings for these applications isn’t realistic. That’s why construction companies turn to Big Top Fabric Structures for a solution. Here are seven reasons why a fabric structure is the best choice for your next project:
1. Fabric Structures Can Be Deployed Directly on the Jobsite
Big Top’s fabric structures do not require a concrete pad as a foundation and can be anchored to nearly anything, even asphalt. Your fabric buildings can be installed anywhere on the jobsite that is most convenient for your operations.
2. Fabric Structures Can Be Moved to Meet Your Changing Business Needs
As work progresses on your project, you may need to move your fabric shelter to another spot within the property. You can move it intact with a crane. Once the work is done and the next project beckons, your fabric structures can be disassembled and shipped to the new location.
3. Fabric Structures Protect Materials & Equipment
Another unique advantage of our temporary buildings is the fabric cover, which is formulated to repel 99.95% of UV-A and UV-B radiation. Thanks to this outstanding thermal performance, our buildings can help maintain the quality of your materials and maximize the lifespan of your equipment’s electronics and paint jobs.
4. Fabric Structures Are Naturally Climate Controlled
An added benefit of the UV-protective cover is that it helps maintain a comfortable temperature inside our structures that is, on average, 15 degrees warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. This can eliminate the need for artificial climate control and the operating costs that come with it (that being said, we can install an HVAC system in your building if needed).
5. Fabric Structures Cost Less to Build Than Permanent Buildings
Fewer materials are needed to construct a Big Top fabric structure than a permanent building. Plus, they can be installed much more quickly, at a rate of 2,500 square feet per day. This all adds up to significant savings in upfront costs.
6. Fabric Structures Are Energy Efficient
The fabric cover of our temporary buildings is translucent, allowing plenty of natural light to shine into the interior. So much so that our structures do not require electric lighting during daytime operations. With no artificial lighting or climate control, it’s easy to see how our fabric shelters can help you save on operating costs.
7. Fabric Structures Are Designed for Long-Term Use
Our fabric shelters are supported by an industrial-grade, galvanized steel frame that will hold strong for years. We can even engineer your structure for heavy wind and snow loads if required by building codes where you operate. With proper maintenance, your Big Top structure can last for decades.
