Major infrastructure projects are on the horizon. Contractors in all fields will need to be prepared to move quickly to bid and win contracts for a range of badly needed improvements. As part of President Biden’s focus on improving and expanding roads, bridges, water systems, transit, the energy grid and broadband access, infrastructure projects are expected to start rolling out over the next few years. Projects will be large and small, with many local communities in need of repairs and upgrades to existing structures and systems. No matter the project, contractors need solutions to get them into the field and up and running so projects can be completed on time and on budget. But how can you keep your infrastructure projects rolling forward without expensive delays? One way is by incorporating tension fabric structure (TFS) into your project plan.

Temporary Buildings Speed Infrastructure Projects

Tension fabric buildings are high clearance, clear-span, weather-resistant structures that can be installed near or cover a construction or infrastructure worksite. They provide a wide range of advantages that help complete a project more efficiently. What are the specific benefits and how can they help your next infrastructure project?

Protection from the Elements

These structures make it easy to protect your equipment and continue working on your project despite the weather. The TFS is built on a sturdy aluminum-alloy frame and is protected by an industrial grade PVC cover that resists water, wind and UV radiation. Reduce weather delays with a covered worksite. By installing a TFS over your infrastructure project work zone, the site is protected from the effects of weather like winds and rain. It helps keep your crew comfortable, protected from hot sun, rain or snow. 

24/7 Access

With a tension fabric building at your job site, your team has 24/7 access to keep the project on track. Available lighting options let you work any time of the day or night, and protect from weather delays. These modular structures can be configured to cover your worksite, not only protecting from weather but also hiding the site or your equipment and supplies from prying eyes, helping reduce the risk of theft. The industrial strength PVC building cover will also help reduce noise and dust from ongoing work for less disturbance of nearby homes or businesses.

On-Site Storage

With an on-site storage building, storing vehicles, heavy equipment, tools and other items is a breeze. Store project materials and all the spare parts you need right on site to avoid delays for trips back to a warehouse or repair depot. Having what you need for any contingency means your crew can keep working and stay productive, saving you time and money.

Project Office, Break Room or Meeting Space

Our tension fabric buildings are versatile and can be divided into separate spaces to double up for multiple uses. Instead of having to haul, level and connect an office trailer, project management can set up an operational center inside the TFS. There’s also room for team meetings for daily assignments and project updates. The structure provides a comfortable space for your supervisors, managers and office equipment. A portion of the interior can be set aside as a break and dining room for work crews, helping them rest and refresh right on site so they can be back on the job sooner.

Tension Fabric Buildings for Infrastructure Projects

Given the current national focus on this area, vital Infrastructure projects are expected to increase dramatically in the coming years. Contractors can have resources in place quickly to be able to competitively bid and complete these projects. Allsite structures can be ready quickly in a matter of weeks from order, and are quick to install wherever they are needed. By renting or leasing a tension fabric building for your infrastructure, construction or other projects, you’ll enjoy ample storage and workspace, 24/7 access and protection from the impact of weather on your team and timeline while getting the job done more quickly and efficiently.
