Webinar to explore elements of fabric structures

Fayetteville, Ark. — To consumers, buildings are a singular item – with all the materials plus construction purchased as a unit. To an engineer, it can be helpful to break the building down to the components and then assemble them — carefully considering each element of the building individually and as part of the whole.

A webinar for engineers on May 1, 2018, at 12:00 p.m. CDT, explores in depth the elements of a fabric structure — including the frame, cladding and foundation. Attendees will leave with concrete knowledge of fabric structures and the engineering principles behind these modern buildings.

Attendees will learn:

  • materials used in fabric structure construction;
  • architectural features available for fabric buildings;
  • factors that determine the quality and longevity of a fabric building;
  • comparisons between engineered fabric buildings and engineered metal buildings; and
  • how fabric structures are used for a variety of large-scale applications.

Speakers include:

Nathan Stobbe, general manager of Legacy Building Solutions — He has over 15 years of experience in the fabric structure industry and has made significant contributions, including as a member of the original committee for developing CSA S367, the guideline for pre-engineered membrane structures, and as co-founder of the Membrane Structures Manufacturers Association. He also holds several patents for fabric structure construction. As general manager, Stobbe leads Legacy’s growth through innovation and vision.

Eric Donnay, Legacy Building Solutions’ vice president of sales — He has over a decade of experience in customer service and sales plus over 13 years of commercial construction experience. In his role at Legacy, Dannay manages sales staff and processes and works to find creative solutions to customer requirements.
