Services: Fabric Buildings

A modern approach to creating temporary & permanent structures

Fabric building construction is a modern approach to creating temporary or permanent structures using fabric materials as the primary building component.  These structures are commonly used in a variety of applications such as warehouses, storage facilities, sports facilities, event venues, and even residential buildings.  They are known for their versatility, cost-effectiveness, and quick installation.

Fabric Building Applications and Styles

Fabric buildings typically consist of a rigid frame made of steel or aluminum, which provides structural support.  The frame is covered with a durable fabric membrane, often made of PVC (polyvinyl chloride) or other synthetic materials, which serves as the building envelope.  The fabric membrane is tensioned over the frame to create a weatherproof and durable enclosure.

One of the key advantages of fabric buildings is their rapid construction time.  Compared to traditional construction methods, fabric buildings can be erected in a fraction of the time since the fabric panels are lightweight and easily assembled.  This makes them an excellent choice for projects requiring temporary structures or for situations where speed is crucial, such as emergency response facilities or temporary event venues.

Fabric structures also offer excellent natural lighting due to their translucent or opaque fabric materials.  This reduces the need for artificial lighting during the daytime and creates a pleasant and productive environment inside the building.  Additionally, the fabric membrane provides good insulation properties, helping to regulate temperature and reduce energy consumption.

These structures are often customizable and can be tailored to meet specific requirements.  They can be designed to accommodate large spans, allowing for flexible interior layouts and unobstructed space.  The fabric coverings can be customized with various colours, patterns, and graphics to enhance the aesthetic appeal or promote branding.

Fabric building construction offers a flexible, cost-effective, and time-efficient solution for various applications.  Its lightweight and customizable nature, along with its ability to provide natural lighting and insulation, make it an attractive option for temporary or permanent structures in a wide range of industries.
