Buildings featuring tensile structures have the ability to explore technology and form, ultimately resulting in structures that resonate with the community and complement existing architecture as well as the natural environment.
Structurflex systems are cost-effective when compared to conventional structures, as their innovative form and inherent efficiencies lead to a reduction in the building materials required to build the structure. The smooth, reflective surfaces of our tensioned membrane structures reduce lighting and cooling costs, reduce solar gain and make the buildings more energy efficient.
It is the combination of these factors that make Structurflex Tensioned Membrane Structures popular among architects and the public alike, and we receive many accolades and international design awards.
The Oldest ETFE Structure in Europe is about 45 years old.
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.The Increasing Importance of Durability
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 […]
