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 was brought on board early, as a design-assist partner on the Rio Tinto stadium to provide input on fabric (PTFE and coated-PES) options, cost and budget data, connection detailing, and wind and snow loading concerns. They worked hand-in-hand with both the structural engineer and steel fabricator throughout the design and shop drawing stages, so that any issues with connections, ice dams, snow guards, gutters, etc. were handled in the 3D modeling phase, and not out in the field where it could impact this critical path activity.”

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.



Implementation of your solution draws on other resources within our skill base. Our installation teams are experienced, precise and dedicated to on-time delivery. You can trust us to adhere to the highest quality standards and to ensure the longevity and ongoing usefulness of your tensile membrane structure.

“Seventeen service stations were constructed within a very short period in localities ranging from Wellington to Auckland. All stations were to be ready for opening at the same time. This required significant effort by Structurflex to ensure the supporting steel framework and fabric canopies were fabricated, delivered to each site and erected in accord with the program and our client’s expectations.”

Structurflex can design and deliver a post-project maintenance program to keep your tensile structure safe, clean and attractive.

Most of our commercial tensile canopy and tension membrane structures have a lifespan in excess of 25 years, provided they are well-maintained.

West Hills Medical Office Building

The five-story, 60’s era West Hills Medical Office Building in Los Angeles was due for an exterior facelift. A complete exterior renovation by Michael W. Folonis Architects revealed that water infiltration had caused structural damage to the existing horizontal plaster awnings; removing them was a costly process that consumed much of the project budget. This […]

KieranTimberlake: Printed Tensile Cladding at Rice University

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.
