Sunbelt Rentals Provides Fabric Structures for Pipeline Manufacturing Facility



Sunbelt Rentals Fabric Structures was recently asked to provide a temporary pipeline manufacturing facility for a large-scale project in Bay City, Texas. The company needed a stucture to store hydro-phobic valves and electronic control panels. These parts were to be incorporated into the construction project. Due to the facilities location, the reputable company considered using an off-site structure for these materials to be stored as they arrived via freighter. The facilities considered were located in Houston, Texas, approximately 90 miles away from the project site.


In the fall of 2014, Matt Hixson, Project Manager of Sunbelt Rentals, made initial contact to discuss a small lunch facility needed for the construction project. As the procurement process continued, the company's procurement contractor conducted an on-site safety audit at our Memphis facility and Sunbelt Rentals headquarters. After safety approval was received, Sunbelt Rentals teams conducted two site visits to discuss the installation process and site-access requirements.

Sunbelt Rentals utilized the following installation processes:

  • Crew of (4) Sunbelt Rentals employees – no temporaries
  • (1) 6k Forklift
  • Multiple articulating man-baskets


Efficient, on-site storage, Sunbelt Rentals' installed structure allowed the customer to store these essential materials on-site. Since construction, they have begun using an off-site logistics and warehousing services. This appears to suit their needs, but the logistics of this off-site storage provide yet another complication. In order to have these materials on-site, they must order a carrier to arrange delivery. This takes a few days from ordering until materials arrive on-site.
