In 2023, a unique warehouse challenge was presented to us from Taiwan. A local client, having previously collaborated with us, reached out with a specific need: a 20x30m storage tent for governmental use. The tent was intended to store materials for various electric projects. Given the client’s past purchases, which were primarily fully enclosed tents, this project demanded a more robust and durable solution to meet the stringent requirements of the local government.
The client, having established a reputation in the electric construction sector, had projects scattered throughout Taiwan. The mobility of the tent was crucial, as it would need to be relocated as one project concluded and another commenced. Given the government’s rigorous standards, a typical fabric wall tent would not suffice. Hence, the recommendation was made to utilize a sandwich panel wall, which the client, trusting our expertise, readily accepted. After discussions with the government, our proposal was approved, setting the project in motion.
Challenge & Solution
Taiwan is known for its frequent typhoons and heavy rainfall. This meant the tent had to be designed to withstand high wind loads. The government’s specifications required the tent to resist up to a level 13 wind. To address this, the client added external wind-resistant steel cables based on our configuration.
The detailed governmental tender posed another challenge. Our team provided a comprehensive structural report in advance, ensuring the client met all governmental requirements.
Custom Design Needs
The client had specific design elements in mind, such as roller shutter doors. Additionally, based on our technical advice, they implemented a hard ground surface, optimizing the cement thickness and load-bearing capacity for added security.
During the construction phase, a minor issue arose due to a slight misalignment in the holes of our 5-meter load-bearing columns and side columns. This caused complications with the client’s sandwich panel wall installation. However, our strong relationship with the client and our technical department’s swift response ensured a quick resolution. The client professionally addressed the issue on-site, reinforcing the trust between both parties.
Customized Dimensions: A 20x30x5m storage tent tailored to the client’s needs.
Robust Framework: A customized 112x203x4 mm aluminum frame ensuring durability.
Premium Fabric: An 850gsm double-coated PVC fabric ensuring protection from the elements.
Enhanced Walling: Sandwich panel walls for added sturdiness, complemented by client-sourced roller shutter doors and external wind-resistant steel cables.
