Mining Fabric Buildings

Mine Site Housing, Equipment Maintenance & Warehousing

Alaska Structures® has more than 40 years of experience providing the world’s most enduring fabric buildings to mining operations worldwide. Alaska Structures engineers mining buildings, conveyor enclosures and mining camps to meet the latest IBC Building Code, ASCE/SEI 7 and AISC standards of design and construction.

Alaska Structures' tensioned fabric buildings for the mining industry are:

  • Proven in extreme climates and inclement weather
  • Highly portable and easy to install, with or without foundations
  • Available in many field-tested designs and configurations
  • Engineered and tested to meet specific wind and snow loads

The MTX Series of maintenance buildings provides spacious environments for on-site workshops and equipment repair facilities. TSX-Series portable cabins offer a raised flooring system for workforce housing on any terrain, with minimum environmental impact. The HGX Series of heavy gable buildings up to 30 feet wide make great modular offices or larger dormitory facilities, kitchen and dining facilities, as well as mine drys. The Denali Series provides mining operations with complete turnkey workforce housing and can be configured with interior hard-wall systems as well as en-suite bathrooms for manager and supervisor accommodations.

The GTX Series of clear span buildings provide incredible interior space because they range from 16 feet to 150 feet wide and any length. These large, engineered fabric buildings are uniquely suited for use as warehouses, large dining facilities, aircraft hangars, and many other applications.

The applications of Alaska Structures tensioned membrane structures are near endless. Additional mining related uses for on-site mining infrastructure include:

Every Alaska Structures facility for mining operations is manufactured in the USA using the highest-quality materials. Our proprietary membranes are tensioned over high-strength galvanized steel or lightweight aluminum frames to create a ruggedly durable building solution capable of withstanding extreme weather conditions. Alaska Structures' fabric buildings are proven to offer incredible longevity in any climate with little to no maintenance.

The easy installation, incredible portability, and minimal foundation requirement to setup an Alaska Structures building system on any level surface with minimal site preparation makes them a far better choice than wood, steel or brick-and-mortar buildings. Alaska Structures fabric building designs offer several other benefits including:

  • Lower Construction Costs
  • Reduced Build Times
  • Optional In-House Powder Coating
  • Clear-Span Architectural Supports
  • Industry-Leading Longevity
  • Low-Cube Shipping
  • Logistics Support
  • Project Management Services
