Our emergency response teams are also available 24 hours per day. When it is time for a new structure, a portion of your maintenance fees may be applied to a brand new design.

Multiple Installation Options

G&B also offers several installation options. Our most popular is a complete turnkey program where a G&B installation crew handles the entire process from site preparation to final sign off. You can also choose to have an on-site G&B site supervisor work with your own installation team or simply provide off-site support and advice.

Freestanding Steel Truss Fabric Covered Buildings

Maximum Light Transfer

G&B’s high tension fabric covers allow up to 80% of sunlight to pass through into the building. This reduces or eliminates the requirement for additional lighting during daylight hours. Whether you are performing vehicle and equipment maintenance, working in a remote site shop or in a processing facility, you’ll enjoy a natural and a comfortable working environment.

Clear Span Buildings up to 200’+ Wide

The arched hoop design of G&B Structures eliminates the need for the vertical supports found in post frame construction. You can maximize every inch of floor space for on-site warehousing, frac sand storage or staging facilities.

G&B Fabric Buildings are Portable and Resalable

Your G&B Portable Fabric Building can be cost effectively disassembled, transported to another location and then re-installed. For smaller buildings and shorter distances, the building may even be moved by crane. This gives you the flexibility of having one building for multiple uses over a long period of time. The building may also be refurbished, recovered and resold when it is no longer needed in service.

Lower Cost than Traditional Structures

G&B buildings are pre-engineered and pre-fabricated. The price of a G&B structure may be up to 20% less than a comparable post frame or steel structure, particularly when you consider the lower installation cost. Our tension fabric buildings are also low maintenance and most repairs can typically be performed on site by your own maintenance staff.

Hassle Free 16 Year Product Warranty

Your new G&B building is backed by an industry leading product warranty, one year 100% guarantee on our professional installation and our satisfaction guarantee on your building, site design and project management.

Customizable Commercial & Industrial Cold Storage Buildings


There are many different foundation options to choose from depending on your application and budget, ranging from screw anchors, to concrete slabs to transport containers. 


Heating, Ventilation and Insulation

G&B Fabric Buildings keep your workspace cooler in summer and warmer in winter. For greater comfort in winter, your building can be insulated to your specified R-value. Infrared & gas heaters are also a cost effective option. The high peaked dome design provides additional airspace and allows fumes and exhaust to naturally vent from the building. Additional vents, fans and ductwork can also be added.

Doors, Windows and Side Entrances

Overhead doors, bi-folding doors, and roll up doors are just some of the available options.  Man doors and windows can be added during erection or at a later addition. (Visit G&B Doors for More Details).


Fire Retardant Fabric Covers

Whether required by code or as an added measure of security, G&B fire retardant covers help protect your property and your people.
