The Best Option for Your Project
What makes mining fabric buildings an ideal alternative to conventional structures on your site? Not only can they be constructed in just a matter of weeks, but they can also be easily dismantled and relocated and your operations move and expand. These clearspan buildings offer a multitude of uses from mine truck shops and mine warehouses to remote site training facilities and site worker fitness centers.
At Norseman Structures, we understand your operations are complex and have the highest requirements for mine site safety. Choosing a provider for mining buildings, is critical to your project’s success. Not only do you need a partner that can offer a wide range of building options and customizations, but that can also comply with onsite regulations.
Our years of expertise and focus in the mining industry is what makes Norseman Structures the leading provider of fabric buildings for mining operations in North America.
Why Choose Norseman Structures
At Norseman Structures, we know that you need efficient mining solutions year round. We don’t just design buildings; we design ShelterSolutions that protect your equipment, assets, and people allowing you to enhance your operations. Our mining fabric buildings are designed to withstand even the harshest wind and snow loads, and meet the requirements of any building codes and environmental regulations that you're working with.
We take environmental accountability seriously. We know the importance of taking care of the land your operations are built upon. Mining fabric buildings are as strong enough to be permanent structures, and also flexible enough to be dismantled and even relocated, when needed. This allows you to leave the land clear of mining site buildings when your project is complete. You will get all the durability and reliability of a permanent structure, while also enjoying the versatility that portable and easy-to-dismantle buildings can offer.
We also understand that many mining companies are doing their part to employ residents of the local mine site community. Norseman Structures has engaged with partners to provide local indigenous partners for the on-site construction work.
Another complexity to construction on mine sites in Northern regions, is the remote access. For years, we have worked around ice road schedules to ensure the safe and efficient delivery and construction of mine site buildings. Our logistics team will work with you on ice road deliveries, ensuring the materials arrive on time keeping your operations running smoothly all year long.
