Benefits and Applications of the Quonset Hut Design

Quonset Huts got their first use in navy operations during World War II. Named for the Naval Air Station where the hut first appeared, it can serve a variety of purposes today. These hooped buildings serve housing needs, workshops, mining operations and research camps, and more. There is a variety of benefits to using Quonset Huts in private and public business operations. These benefits include cost savings, flexible design, customization, durability, easy and fast set up, and effective use of space.

Use of Fabric Structures in Oil & Gas Exploration

Oil and gas operations can be very expensive. As the oil and gas prices drop, it can be hard to maintain a profit with such costly operations. It’s more important than ever to have cost-effective operations, and one way to do that is by using fabric buildings. Fabric buildings can withstand extreme weather and work for every stage of operations at a lower cost than traditional buildings. Fabric buildings have use during the search, well drilling, rig, and extraction stages to house equipment and workers on site. These buildings clearly can support all aspects of operations, similar to traditional buildings, with added cost and time savings.
