Many tensioned fabric structures are designed as standardized, modular systems. Both for rental projects and permanent structures, there is a need to certify a standard structure for use in a particular project with its own load requirement. This can be done with drawings or with a combination of calculations and drawings, depending on the regulatory requirements. Certifications for submittal are sealed by a Professional Engineer (PE) certified in the jurisdiction where the project is located.
We provide engineering reviews and certifications for all different types of tensioned fabric structures and rental tents with a PE seal in any US State. This includes reviews of clearspan tents, tensile tents, and frame tents.
An engineering package will normally include drawings defining the structure, load assumptions and reactions on the anchoring. It also includes sufficient detail for the calculations so that another structural engineer, or a building inspector, can recreate (portions of) the calculations to verify their validity.
