A qualified industrial designer with extended education in architecture and design, Bart heads up the USA activities for Structurflex, which have grown exponentially in his capable hands. Bart’s commitment to tensile fabric architecture runs deep. For well over a decade he’s been intensely occupied with every facet of the tensile membrane structure industry.
In addition to his immense design, detailing and engineering capabilities, he’s involved with high level project management, site supervision and business development. Bart is also a board member of the Fabric Structures Association, an organization responsible for advancing the usage of tensile membrane systems in the building industry.
A key objective for Bart is to keep Structurflex at the leading edge of tensile membrane structure emerging technologies, materials and construction methods. He has an eye for opportunities that give Structurflex the chance to shine.
We are pleased to have collaborated with KieranTimberlake and the outfit of a parking structure on the Rice University Campus. In their blog post, they describe the concepts they employed to create an iconic sculptural element. For more details see the KieranTimberlake blog post.
While tensile fabric has several distinct advantages over more traditional materials like glass, one of the most important may be its ability to withstand severe weather events. Our tensile structures and tensile facades in Miami, Jacksonville, Houston, Fort Worth, Waco, and Atlanta did not sustain any damage or require any repair despite enduring events ranging […]
