Tents serve the construction industry as temporary structures or shelters across a variety of functions. Applications in the construction industry are limitless. Clearspan buildings in particular serve this market well as they are available in widths up to 164’ wide and have no interior supports or exterior guy wires. Clearspan tents are expandable in increments of 5 meters or 16’4″ for most standard bay sizes. custom bay sizes can be accomodated across both the length and the width.
Concrete pours are a perfect application to cover with a construction tent. Concrete requires the right temperature and the right amount of moisture to cure properly. This becomes even more crucial when pouring concrete forms or performing any sort of specialty concrete pour or finish. By protecting your site with a clearspan structure rental you can be assured of a dry, temperature controlled atmosphere. This ensures you will be on site regardless of weather it will also boost productivity, efficiency, and the safety of your staff.
In the winter of 2011 the Midwest experienced several major snow and ice storms which pushed construction companies behind on most or all of their projects. There was one general contractor that was still working under an over 20,000 square foot clearspan tent and making up time every day. Because other sites were shut down they were able to shift their work force to the protected site. As the weather turned again and again the project remained under fabric for two months, the workforce had vaulted from languishing behind schedule with no hope in sight to finishing weeks ahead of schedule. “Our subs raved about working under the tent every day – especially the iron workers. They were comfortable, there was good light and they were able to work more efficiently and more safely than if we were in the open.”
Tents can be installed for a variety of other commercial, industrial, and construction applications. We have installed tents for temporary warehousing, craft change and break areas, equipment storage, environmental remediation enclosures, job site offices, entire site enclosures and much more. Most tent rental or temporary structure rental companies will conduct a site visit if possible or work with you to determine if your location and application is well suited for a temporary structure.
