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 offer a rapid solution for establishing living accommodations and other resource centers to help those in need. Additionally, we offer a range of facilities to meet your homeless shelter or navigation center needs.

Navigation centers made using engineered fabric buildings quickly address a growing need for homeless shelters. They also provide a rapid response to emerging humanitarian crises and living facilities for refugees fleeing their homes. We can equip our fabric structures with insulation packages and HVAC systems to create a temperature-controlled facility, shielding occupants from extreme heat and cold.

Furthermore, we engineer our weatherproof structures to meet area-specific wind and snow loads, as local codes or the International Building Code (IBC) requires. This creates a safe and reliable modular building system capable of withstanding adverse weather conditions and year-round use.

Additional options available for any Alaska Structures fabric shelter include the following:

  • Window and door systems
  • Modular flooring systems
  • Furniture packages

An Alaska Structures building specialist will work with the leadership in your organization to discuss your area’s homeless shelter or navigation center needs and propose a building solution.

Additional Benefits

Tensioned fabric buildings from Alaska Structures offer drastically shorter construction times than traditional buildings, metal buildings and other prefabricated building solutions. Unlike “instant” structures that require concrete foundations, clients can safely and securely anchor our fabric buildings to virtually any level surface. Another unique benefit of choosing Alaska Structures is the ability to quickly take down and either store or relocate the shelter as needs change.
