Fabric Structures for Homeless Shelters, Processing Facilities, and Navigation Centers

Homeless shelters and navigation centers from Alaska Structures® create a humane, clean, safe, and reliable space to quickly accommodate those in need.

Navigation Centers and Humane Homeless Shelters

When local municipalities, cities, states, and government agencies experience challenges with homelessness, specifically needing to quickly provide humane housing solutions, hygiene facilities, and dining facilities, they choose Alaska Structures. Our high-performance fabric structures provide a rapid solution for establishing living accommodations and other resource centers to help those in need. Alaska Structures engineers and custom-designs a range of facilities to meet your homeless shelter or navigation center needs.

Whether it is to address a growing need for homeless shelters, to respond to an emerging humanitarian crisis, or provide living facilities for refugees fleeing their homes for safety, our custom-designed fabric structures can be equipped with insulation packages and HVAC systems to create a temperature-controlled facility, shielding those in need from extreme hot and cold temperatures. Our weatherproof structures are engineered to meet area specific wind and snow loads required by local and international building code, providing a safe and reliable modular building system capable of withstanding adverse weather conditions. 

Additional options available for any fabric shelter from Alaska Structures include window and door systems, modular flooring systems, furniture packages, and soft- and hard-wall partition systems. An Alaska Structures building specialist will work with the leadership in your organization to design a homeless shelter or navigation center that meets the immediate and potential homeless shelter needs in the future.

Custom-designed, tensioned fabric buildings from Alaska Structures offer drastically shorter construction times compared to traditional buildings, metal buildings, as well as other prefabricated building solutions. Unlike other “instant” structures that require concrete foundations, our fabric buildings can be safely and secured anchored to virtually any level surface. Another unique benefit to choosing Alaska Structures is the ability to easily take down and either store or relocate the homeless shelter as needs change.
