The translucent high performance fabric cover on our buildings lets in an abundance of natural light, reducing the need for artificial lighting, therefore reducing energy and electricity consumption. The cover is a thermal insulator - fabric buildings are cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, reducing or eliminating the need for temperature control.
The installation of a Norseman Structures fabric building is often completed in 1-2 weeks meaning lower energy costs and fuel emissions from a construction crew. Many of our fabric buildings can be placed directly on the ground or shallow foundations which could result in savings on foundation costs and minimize environmental impact. Waste from the construction process is minimal and cleanup is quick.
Norseman Structures buildings can be quickly disassembled and re-located in certain instances, reducing environmental impact. A single building can be used in multiple locations while only using the energy and materials to manufacture a building once.
The design and components used in our buildings support some of the requirements of the LEED point systems. For more details, talk to your Building Consultant.
