Even if covering your entire construction site with an enclosure is impractical, construction enclosures can make a huge difference in your bottom line. You can minimize waste and maximize production by using them for storage enclosures, safety stations, and equipment bays (among other uses).

Fabric enclosures can be made in any size, from 50’ to 150’ wide and 54’ tall—and at any length! Their modular design allows you to design the perfect enclosure for your needs. They are inexpensive to fabricate and quick to set up, cutting out the costs of traditional construction for sheds and shops. The aluminum frame is strong enough to support safety equipment, lighting, plumbing, and any other necessities.

How Construction Enclosures Can Minimize Material Waste

Whether it is material damaged by weather, loss from theft or general inefficiency, construction waste has to be figured into the bottom line of any construction job. A stack of lumber left out in the rain will warp and bow, while the same stack – kept under a construction enclosure – will not suffer any damage.

Weather, of course, is not the only waste culprit. Site theft is a common problem even for materials that are lightly covered or protected. A fabric structure deters theft, because it’s simply a bigger hassle for thieves to deal with. It also conceals your materials so that your site is less prone to theft in the first place.

Although there is little anyone can do about worksite waste caused by inefficiency, keeping material in a ready place where it can be stored prior to use can keep that inefficiency from taking too big a bite out of the bottom line.

Minimize Wasted Labor

Outdoor construction sites are dependent on the weather. Rain, snow, heat, humidity and many other factors can slow down a work site. Any work area you can cover with a construction enclosure can keep your operation running smoothly.

The interior of the construction enclosures can be heated or cooled to user needs. Fabric covering can also allow natural light to be used in the enclosure itself. Keeping shadows and dark spots to a minimum gives your workers a natural environment to work in without losing control of the interior environment.

Finally, an enclosure reduces everyone’s exposure to the elements, resulting in fewer sick days and collateral injuries.

Minimizing Costs

Building traditional support buildings on the work site is a costly and time-consuming process. Even the simplest shed needs to be planned out and built properly to avoid becoming a waste magnet. Poorly built storage facilities can cost as much in waste as they do to build.

A fabric-covered construction enclosure doesn’t need specialized builders or maintenance. If you are using it for a standard purpose and don’t have any particular demands, the enclosure can usually be rented. Once the project is complete, the construction enclosure can go back to the company, minimizing your costs even further.

Maximizing Profits

From a business stand point, minimizing costs while maximizing profits is the most desirable outcome for any construction project. With increased costs of material and skilled workers, the bottom line becomes even harder to reach. Replacing your construction site buildings with temporary construction enclosures can keep you within reach of your budget goals.

Construction enclosures are also quick and easy to disassemble and move to a different site or a more convenient location as the work moves. Instead of preplanning storage and work facilities as the job site changes, each fabric building can be moved to where it will be most useful. No specialized skills are needed to take the enclosure apart and move it.

If you are serious about hitting your budgetary bottom line and ensuring that costs are kept down, fabric-covered construction enclosures are one additional tool in any manager’s toolkit.
