Our innovative team will meet or exceed your vision of concept and design with elegance and class while engineering for strength.

Four Season Permanent Fabric Structure

A permanent structure consists of a coated PVC fabric membrane tensioned on a clearspan frame, engineered to meet local municipal building code for wind and snow load. Most municipalities require fire suppression and R-Value insulation to meet energy code. A permanent structure is designed for use 365 days a year.

Three Season Semi-Permanent Fabric Structure

A semi-permanent structure consists of a coated PVC fabric membrane tensioned on supporting interior poles or a clearspan frame. If used 180 days or less it is considered temporary and usually will not require fire suppression or energy code requirements.

Energy Efficient HVAC & Lighting Capabilities

Arena offers a variety of energy efficient sustainable options to incorporate into your permanent or semi-permanent clearspan structure installation. Heat or cool your structure on demand with thermostat controlled heating and air conditioning units. Arena can design and engineer a system to meet the intended use of the tented environment. Calculating accurate peak heating and cooling loads have a direct impact on energy efficiency, occupant comfort and indoor air quality. Air distribution, heat loss and heat gain are all factored into maximizing the energy efficient designs of our packaged units. Arena is a special use dealer for York, Carrier and Whisper Kool who can provide systems available in various voltage and fuel type options. Further enhance your temperature control with heat-reflecting opaque fabric materials, large ceiling fans or motorized roll-up screens. Insulated R-Value options are available for roof and wall panels to meet energy code. Arena can also incorporate energy efficient LED lighting customized to your specific needs.

Customize Your Experience

Ensure your clearspan structure installation serves all the purposes of a permanent building by incorporating important amenities. Modular self-contained executive washrooms are available for temporary or long term installations with lease or purchase options. Arena can design and build various options for housing pre-function food service / food preparation with privacy doors that separate while providing access to the main banquet space. Special seamless rubber no-slip flooring is available to meet health code requirements. This additional space can be used for storing tables, chairs, staging, dance floors, or other related materials when events are not taking place.

Semi-permanent and permanent clearspan structure installations offer many benefits including adaptability, flexibility and sustainability. Last-minute changes can be easily accommodated as the majority of the components may be reused for another structure with limited impact to the site. The location can then be returned to its original appearance from event to event.

Examples of Arena Americas’ semi-permanent structures include Chrome, a reconfigurable event space at the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee, WI; a custom double decker arcum structure used for hospitality at AT&T Stadium for the Dallas Cowboys; and custom hospitality structures at Lambeau Field, the home of the Green Bay Packers.
