What’s special about our team is that we staff our own engineering department right at our manufacturing facility in Iowa, resulting in better communication and less errors between design and construction. They aren’t employed by other companies and devote all their time to creating plans for ClearSpan Hercules Truss Arch Buildings. The ClearSpan engineering team turns your structure’s customizations and building requirements into a cohesive plan.Designer

Using the most updated Computer-Aided Design (CAD) software, our engineers design your fabric structure’s frame. Depending on wind and snow-load requirements, along with other building code factors, they determine the necessary number of steel trusses and their required spacing. ClearSpan engineers also factor in calculations for customizations such as additional building height, and once your structure is ordered, engineered stamped drawings can be provided. Our engineering team consistently and effectively creates organized building designs for our fabric structures. From these designs the instructions are created so our production team can manufacture your structure.
