Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ’s About Allsite & Temporary Fabric Structures (TFS)

How much does it cost to rent a temporary structure?

Rental is the economical option most clients select for short term to mid-term enclosure needs. Long term uses (3 years plus) may be better suited to purchase if the capital cost is not prohibitive. In some cases (i.e. sports facilities) Allsite offers unique long-term lease programs for clients who do not own the land and want a cash flow alternative.

The cost to rent is monthly based on square footage and can be reduced through firm contract period rentals. All rentals can be extended on a month to month basis.

Typical six-month rental periods can be as little as $3.50/sq ft for the structure which is usually less than most tent rental alternatives.

What sizes are available for our tension fabric structures?

Standard widths are found in the drawings located on this site starting at 66’ (20m) wide and up to 156’ wide. The structures are modular, so length is indefinite but must be at least 32’. Custom sizes are available.

How quickly can Allsite deliver a structure to the specified location?

Typically, within three weeks of receipt of the deposit, however expedited delivery can be made upon request for emergency applications.

Can you provide turn-key installation and removal for temporary structures?

Yes – turnkey installations and dismantles are available. However, on union sites or to reduce installation costs, Allsite also offers professional technical representatives that can direct client supplied equipment and local labor in both the installation and removal of an Allsite TFS structure.

Permits (Fire permits) are typically required for rentals 6 months or less with possible extensions in certain cases. Building permits are typically required for longer terms use of fabric structures. You should inquire with your local building department as to the regulations in your area.

Can you customize engineering packages for temporary structure permits?

Yes, our structural calculation packages are specific to the size of the building, site location, and standard requirements for the area. If you know in advance the wind speed and other criteria your local building department is looking for we can incorporate that into the package.

Absolutely! Allsite structures are designed to easily be relocated and re-used multiple times. The pieces are modular so configurations can also be changed.
