Since 1975, Alaska Structures has been supplying the oil, natural gas, and mineral exploration industries with best-in-class tension fabric buildings. Utilized as warehouses, equipment storage, and personnel housing, our fabric membrane structures have a well-earned reputation for conquering harsh conditions, inclement weather and extreme climates. Investing in a safe shelter or storage solution from Alaska Structures also significantly reduces operational costs for geophysical expeditions in several key ways, including:
Reduction in Overall Energy Consumption
Sheet metal and fiberglass structures struggle to provide energy efficiency, but Alaska Structures fabric buildings can accommodate proprietary insulation to any R-rating of thermal resistance, making them a vital component of any sub-arctic or desert expedition. When conditions worsen and the need for added protection is paramount, every Alaska Structures tensioned membrane structure can be equipped with heavier insulation to protect your key assets.
Optional HVAC, electrical, and active ventilation systems are also available. Look at our Product Options page for more information.
Decreased Operational Costs
Thanks to low-cube packaging and rapid deployment processes, Alaska Structures fabric buildings can be shipped and installed in a fraction of the time it takes to build a traditional structure. Striking is just as fast and easy, allowing general laborers to deconstruct the facility in most instances. Alaska Structures can also provide logistical support, project management services and installation assistance.
Galvanized steel and heavy-duty aluminum frames combined with custom, double-engineered membranes ensure decades-long lifespans for all of our American-made fabric buildings. Repairs and improvements are easy. With sectional panel design at the forefront of our process, you can expand your structure or make significant changes to its design without having to invest in a completely new building in the future. Look at our Technology and Engineering page for more details.
