DESIGN

DESIGN

The discovery phase of every project determines the success of the outcome. Our engineers and designers will work closely with your team to identify the practical and aesthetic requirements of the task. Ideas flow both ways during this process, so that the tensile structure design receives the benefit of combined thinking power.

Structurflex offers advice from the most preliminary of sketches on:

  • Types of fabric structures – coated-PES, PTFE or ETFE
  • Suitability of shapes
  • Approximate costs
  • Critical path, design analysis and building logistics
  • Provision of preliminary reaction loads.

TENSILE FABRIC STRUCTURE DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT

A substantial part of Structurflex engineering and design activity is dedicated to conceptual design. Once the big idea is right, we add the detail required to turn vision into reality. Our design team will be thoroughly conversant with the building control rules that apply to your location, so you can be confident that there won’t be any expensive re-designing down the track for your fabric structure.

Our designers actively participate in tensile structure design forums, to ensure they get the stimulus and input required to push boundaries. Continuous improvement is embedded in our culture, and that means that our commercial canopies and other tensile structures can offer the maximum benefit.

Daily’s Place Amphitheater

The latest place to see our work is Jacksonville, Florida, at the newly opened Daily’s Place Amphitheater. Daily’s Place seats 5,500 people and is connected to both EverBank Field football stadium and a brand new 94,000 square foot indoor football practice field. The exterior structure of Daily’s Place is formed from 67,000 square feet of […]

Tropical Rain Forest in Buffalo, New York

Buffalo, New York is pretty far from the tropics. Structurflex provided the ETFE triple-layer architecture that made it possible to recreate a tropical rain forest in upstate New York. SOUTH AMERICAN CLIMATE EXTREMES INDOORS Structurflex met the challenge of creating the weather extremes of an Amazonian rain forest in upstate New York — a place […]
