Extreme Weather Structures

For sites in areas of heavy snow, rain or wind, Mahaffey creates engineered, climate-controlled, fully lit work covers to keep crews comfortable and projects on-schedule. Totally customizable solutions means you can create work spaces tailored to your needs, and when your project is complete, Mahaffey's shelters are quickly disassembled and removed by our expert team.

Base Camp & Living Facilities

Services range from complete turnkey base camps and FOB support to the installation of single components, such as DFAC, AAR and TOC tents, admin tents and more. Comprised of experts from the military, construction and logistics fields, we provide a collaboration of dedicated support to demanding clients.

Temporary Firehouses

In addition to practicing fire safety, we are honored to have installed several temporary fire houses both in disaster relief and new construction covers. These structures can be erected on any surface at any size to house multiple firetrucks and equipment. All of our temporary structures include at least two exits, our fabric is flame retardant and all buildings adhere to local fire codes.

Water Services

Mahaffey provides water supply, storage and disposal using options from tankers to bladders depending on the location and requirements. All temporary systems are designed site-specific taking distance and elevation into account. Water systems can be as simple as providing water for a shower unit or maintaining water and waste disposal for showerheads, laundry facilities and kitchen operations all at the same time.

Amenities (HVAC, Lights)

Mahaffey’s industrial fabric structures can be fitted with virtually any accessory found in new construction, from flooring to lighting and everything in between.
