6 Ways Temporary Industrial Tents can Combat COVID

The only certainty for a business or organization is change. Whether you need a tent for administering COVID-19 vaccinations or testing, creating a new construction, coordinating a winterizing project, or have been operating for decades, challenges that require additional space for set periods will arise. Comfortable and affordable, temporary structures (like industrial tents) are a versatile way to get the room you need in an ever-changing crisis or environment.

Turnkey tenting solutions can prove as crucial problem-solving methods for disaster relief and response work. No matter how soon you need an industrial tent or structure, — even ones complete with features and amenities — calling on the right third-party teams will resolve your challenges. 

In this blog, we’re going to explain the six ways temporary structures provide the much-needed versatility ideal for resolving medical crises, natural disaster recovery efforts, winter storm relief and more:

1. Won’t Break the Bank

Constructing a new building or expanding an existing one requires a hefty investment, which is not ideal for non-permanent space demands. Temporary structures require a much smaller upfront investment and they don’t leave you with a permanent structure to maintain past your project needs. A pro tip for not breaking the bank is to entrust experts (preferably with years of experience that have worked with a lot of clients) to accommodate your project budgets and requirements.

2. Immediate Solutions for Immediate Problems

By nature, unplanned events, natural disasters, or the COVID-19 pandemic occur without notice but require an immediate response. Temporary industrial tent structures are built from durable, weather-resistant materials that can withstand even the harshest environments. Structures like all-weather tents provide fast protection from dangerous conditions and are rapidly (and easily) deployable. It’s especially helpful to use temporary structures from partners that have strategically placed inventory nationwide so that they can provide faster response times.

3. Quicker Turnaround and Timing

Constructing a new building or expanding a current one takes months or years to finish. By the time it’s ready, you might not need the extra space anymore. Temporary structures can be set up within days by a professional, safety-conscious installation team. (The fast completion is possible because a specific foundation isn’t required, all assets needed are on-hand, and expert crews can be made available as soon as the same day.)

4. Easily Transportable

Temporary structures are fully relocatable, so they are ready to move when you are. Permanent buildings are, well, just that, permanent. They’re immovable unless built upon piers and beams. Manufactured with portability in mind, industrial tents have been precisely designed and constructed with modification of operations in mind.

5. More Usable Space

Columns and support beams are on the perimeter of a temporary structure, which means the entire interior space is usable. These temporary buildings also provide excellent height and clearance capabilities compared to traditional buildings. They can also be built to any size so that you can get the exact space you need.

6. Customizable for Any Need

Permanent building expansions are costly to design and construct. With temporary structures, features are easy to add and customize as your project’s needs change and/or grow. You can give your project the capacity for:

  • Heating and cooling systems
  • Doors and ramps 
  • Tables and chairs
  • Custom lighting
  • Secure storage

Need More Than Temporary Industrial Tents?  

Sometimes temporary structures like industrial tents are just the beginning of your needs list. Adding a one-stop-shop resource that can not only supply large, high-quality clear span tents and hard-walled buildings, but also deliver and manage full-service amenities and other strategic solutions can help you make your project go without a hitch — and easily exceed expectations.

The right providers can support your project needs through a range of additional applications:

  • HVAC systems
  • Pipes and drapes
  • Lighting
  • Air sterilizing machines
  • Beds and bunks
  • Cots
  • Linens

The bottom line? With versatile options for your operations (whether large or small) and assets that can quickly and efficiently be delivered and installed for your temporary needs, you’ll be able to experience a vast amount of advantages that will improve your overall outcomes.
