When it comes to portability in design of structures no one can outmatch Portable fabric structures. Unlike the regular construction materials like steel and concrete, which are not just bulky and heavy, the tensile fabric structures are lightweight and easy to transport as well.
While the traditional buildings are constructed by bringing in all raw materials at one site and then putting them in place, in case of portable fabric structures the fabrication or the formation of fabrics from raw materials is done somewhere else preferably in a controlled environment and its installation is done at another place. This process requires transit for structures and to make this transit smoother, the structures are usually manufactured as small units of a larger structures and transported to the site of installation. Once there they are arranged to give final shape. These ease of installation and transportation is the hallmark of a good portable structure.
