Agri Business Warehouse Building

Project Description

Client: Feed, Nutrition & Consulting Services Business
Location:  Lethbridge, AB
Building: 32′ wide x 100′ feet long Agri Business Warehousing

Results

“As Plant Manager of a growing business that provides superior feeds and supplements that ensure nutritional health and exceptional performance, we were looking at options for extra storage space for different feed and ingredients that must be protected from the elements in Southern Alberta. FastCover was chosen due to its cost effectiveness and quick set-up, allowing us to grow our business in other ways, and has proved itself very durable, requiring little maintenance. The recycled asphalt floor with redi-racking three shelves high on each side of our 32’ wide x 100’ long FastCover enables us to efficiently move product in and out with our regular forklift.  FastCover not only manufactures their structures, they also provide complete installation services, allowing us the luxury of dealing with one supplier throughout the process. I would not hesitate to recommend FastCover. The FastCover Team were courteous and helpful, and they supplied a great quality product that fit the needs of our company.”

Riding Arena Instruction

Camp Nakamun Riding Arena

Project Description

Client: Camp Nakamun Riding Arena
Location:  Busby, AB
Building: 86′ wide x 204′ long riding arena

The Riding Arena at Camp Nakamun provides an all-weather venue for the Horsemanship clinics and classes as part of the wide array of activities that are offered.

Features

The sound dampening qualities of the fabric cover are ideal for instructor to student communication.  There are no echos inside the building and the quite, hushed atmosphere means instructors can communicate directly with students even over a larger area.

Viewing space was created along one wall by placing the side rails several feet inside the building walls so that spectators could be allow to view the riding events.  Because the side walls of the building are near vertical, the required clearance height for horse and rider is achieved without losing valuable interior space.  The building fabric covers allow a tremendous amount of natural light to pass through the cover which virtually eliminates shadows meaning horses are not spooked by dark corners of the building and riding space is maximized.

Located near Busby, Alberta, which is north of Edmonton, winter temperatures can exceed -30 with windchills of -40 and beyond.  Having the indoor riding arena means that no matter how nasty the weather outside, horsemanship instruction can still continue indoors.  The fabric building cover does not radiate heat and cold like steel building materials so the temperature inside is moderated and without wind, rain, and snow to worry about, the riding surface can be maintained in near ideal conditions year round.

Personal Storage

Project Description

Client: Darell A.
Location:  Prince Edward Island, Canada
Building: Portable Engineered Truss 38’ wide x 60’ long
Use: Personal Storage Building for recreational equipment and collector cars

“I needed extra storage and with my new FastCover I am now able to use my other building for my business. I heard about FastCover from a friend and when I called the sales person, she was very pleasant and went the extra mile to make sure everything went well for me. FastCover was the only company who asked me what I wanted instead of telling me what I wanted. My new Portable FastCover doesn’t require any type of cement footing which made it more cost effective. I installed it myself and anytime I had any questions they were just a phone call away. You will get good service here because they make you feel like a person and not just another sale. I have had my FastCover for one winter now and it stood strong in 120km. Very Impressive!”

Features

  • The personal storage building cover includes green trim with the majority of the main cover white to match the other buildings on the property.
  • No artificial lighting was required in this application as the white fabric lets 80% of natural light through for great working conditions during daylight hours.
  • A 36”x80” steel insulated pre-hung man door was installed complete with sill and brickmold for a clean installation and keyed lock. This allows the customer easy access to the interior during off season to check on his “toys”.
  • The main overhead door is a 16’ wide x 15’ high fabric roll-up door with manual crank system. The door is secured to the baserail with ratchet straps when not in use and ball bungees secure the sides of the door to keep snow and rain out. This type of door is very cost effective especially in an application such as this one where the door is used less frequently due to the seasonality of the cars and boats stored inside.
  • The storage building easily provides ample room for additional boats or cars with room to polish and maintain them. As you can see the customer likes to keep both new and old muscle car technology plus his boats in pristine condition, out of the elements and ready to pound the pavement or waves.
