Looking to Expand? Three Benefits of Tensile Fabric Building Structures

By January 20, 2022February 4th, 2022No Comments

The world today is currently experiencing an unprecedented event – a modern global pandemic. As the business sector continues to push forward, developers and investors alike are turning to more economical ways to reach their objectives without bringing their expansion plans to a halt. 

How Tensile Fabric Building Structures Can Help

Whether it’s a restaurant that wants to quickly add a new wing to its building, or a sports arena that could benefit from installing a new practice field for its players; there are plenty of use cases for tensile fabric building structures that make more sense than their brick and mortar counterparts.

Here are three benefits of tensile fabric building structures that explain why our clients keep coming back for new projects:

  1. Speed of Installation

If you’re looking to expand quickly, it doesn’t get much better than tensile fabric structures. Due to their lightweight design, installing a tensile fabric structure is a much faster and easier process than having to lay down the foundation and build out new walls and a ceiling for your property. Depending on the size and scope of the project, the innovative tent-like design of these structures can often be built within mere weeks; compared to the months it could take to build a brick and mortar building.  

  1. Highly Durable 

And we’re not just talking about semi-permanent spaces when we recommend tensile fabric building structures. The truth is, they make a fantastic permanent addition to your property, with membrane materials that have been proven to last and withstand harsh and extreme climates and environments for decades on end. When you choose a fabric building structure for your expansion needs, you’re creating a space that’s going to be used for years to come. 

  1. Cost-Effectiveness

Let’s face it – cost is a big factor when it comes to any construction project. And if you’re a business owner, you want to complete your objectives to as high a degree of quality as possible, using as little budget as you can. Tensile fabric building structures give you a high degree of customization and workability for just a fraction of the cost of a conventional building expansion. Our lightweight, high-quality membranes are able to cover large areas without the need to build the support columns you’d need to safely create a similar space using metal, wood, and concrete. Less weight means large swathes of unobstructed space that’s perfect for anything from setting up tables to installing a soccer pitch. That means more building for less money – a proposition any business can appreciate.
