Facilities managers are always looking for new strategies to save energy and cut costs. According to Energy Star, the average commercial building wastes 30 percent of its energy consumption due to inefficiencies. This hits operations where it hurts—the bottom line.
Turnkey fabric structures offer a wide variety of amenities, like climate control and lighting options, to keep your crews comfortable, your materials protected, and your overall energy expenses in check. Selecting the right amenities for your project and properly maintaining them is key to maximizing energy efficiency in your temporary structure.

In our first blog in this series, we shared with you an introduction to the engineering behind anchoring temporary structures. This anchoring is powerful enough to cover your most critical long- or short-term operations—ensuring structure integrity and stability you can count on.
A major benefit of temporary structures is that they can be installed on virtually any ground surface from asphalt and concrete foundations to gravel or soil. With correctly engineered anchoring, temporary structures can be strong and stable no matter where they stand.
In Part 2 of this series, engineering expert Brian Szkaradnik explains the role your ground surface plays in determining the right anchoring solution for your structure.

Winning that big contract takes a lot more than luck, but today's small businesses are up to the challenge. After completing the hard work of securing a make-it-or-break-it order, it is time to ramp up production to fulfill that dream contract. Small businesses often find this is a stumbling block due to lack of available storage space on their property. Constructing a conventional warehouse takes time the budget and contract will not allow. One way to expedite faster production is to use temporary warehouses. This is a solution that will make contract fulfillment easier, and it will move the company to the next level.
