Why Fabric Buildings

Advantages of working with the industry-leading fabric building manufacturer & construction team

Greystone has 37+ years of construction experience. Not only do we do build fabric, but we build pre-engineered metal buildings, tilt wall, precast and conventional brick and mortar buildings. With that expertise, we know fabric buildings can provide advantages compared to traditional structures and are ideal for a wide variety of applications in the commercial, industrial, and agribusiness industries. Our Fabric Building Division, who has installed thousands of fabric buildings across the US, partners with our premier fabric building manufacturer, Britespan Building Systems, to bring you the following list.

Fabric buildings are more affordable than traditional structures and can oftentimes be constructed in less than a week. Fabric covered buildings are low maintenance and if designed correctly provide air circulation thereby greatly reducing condensation and it’s corrosive effects. The fabric covering is resistant to UV rays while also allowing natural light through thereby reducing lighting costs and creating a safer work environment.
