Alaska Structures® has more than 40 years of experience providing the world’s premiere fabric buildings to mining operations worldwide. Alaska Structures engineers mining buildings, conveyor enclosures and worksite camps to meet 2012 IBC Building Code, ASCE/SEI 7 and AISC standards of design and construction.

Alaska Structures' tension 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 field-tested designs and configurations
  • Independently tested and certified to support wind and snow loads

The MTX Series of maintenance buildings provides spacious environments for workshops and equipment repair. TSX-Series portable cabins offer a raised flooring system for workforce housing on any terrain. The HGX Series of heavy gable buildings up to 30 feet wide make great mobile offices. The Denali Series provides mining operations with complete turnkey workforce housing.

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, rugged fabric buildings are uniquely suited for use as warehouses, dining facilities and dozens of other uses.

The possibilities of your Alaska Structures tension membrane mining structures include:

Every Alaska Structures facility for mining operations is manufactured in the USA using American labor and durable materials. Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) fabrics form the rugged skin of these buildings while galvanized steel or high-strength aluminum frames create a sturdy skeleton. Alaska Structures' fabric buildings are proven to offer incredible longevity in any climate with little to no maintenance.

The easy installation and incredible portability of our fabric structures on any level surface with minimal site preparation makes them better choices than wood, steel or brick-and-mortar buildings. Alaska Structures fabric building designs offer several other benefits including:

  • Lower Construction Costs

  • In-House Powder Coating
