A Closer Look: Advanced Engineering for Fabric Buildings


Steel-framed fabric buildings use familiar construction methods, and have nearly identical considerations when it comes to engineering and quality. By examining the familiar engineering principles and examining the materials and methods used in these buildings before, during and after construction, you will have a thorough understanding of fabric buildings and how they compare to other building types.

Using recently completed energy-efficiency testing, engineering concerns and case studies, attendees will see how fabric buildings are used for a variety of common and unusual applications.

You will learn:

1. Engineering considerations that must be calculated for a successful project
2. The similarities and differences between pre-engineered metal and fabric buildings
3. Fabric building construction safety considerations
4. New information about energy efficiency in fabric buildings
