While this may give you peace of mind today, we still have two-thirds of hurricane season left to weather.  Even non-coastal communities, residents, and businesses are at risk, as storm winds can cause just as much damage and loss as water.

Optimal Turnaround Performance: The Case for Temporary Structures

Periodic turnarounds are a crucial part of maintenance for any plant, refinery or factory. These shutdowns are a routine aspect of plant management — a temporary need, which calls for a temporary solution. During turnaround events, such as a major maintenance or upkeep, using a permanent structure can hinder business operations. The costs of installation and slower build times for traditional construction can cause project delays or reduced productivity. Temporary structures provide a safer working environment that allows for maximum productivity and efficiency during these maintenance events, while providing the customizability to counteract potential risk factors.

As Your Refinery Needs Expand, So Can Your Temporary Structure

When it comes to the oil and gas industry, industrial maintenance, turnarounds and plant expansions are all part of the job. These events enable your operations to continue moving smoothly for years to come.
