Architectural tensioned fabric structures are today's preferred choice whenever a dramatic, unique architectural statement is called for. We at Excel Fab Tech fluently speak the language of curvilinear, anti-classic surface geometries. Whether the initial concept is developed in-house or provided by the architect or owner, our expertise can turn any concept into a structurally sound, economic reality. Our complete in-house responsibility from start to finish results in a finished product that is outstanding in every sense of the word. Excel Fab Tech provides complete design/build expertise for unique tensioned fabric structures worldwide.
Our certified structural designs meet building code requirement for snow, wind and seismic loads as well as fire safety, energy conservation, etc. The wind behavior of large, unique roof shapes and configurations is typically confirmed by advanced wind tunnel analysis. Such analysis provides the greatest design accuracy and efficiency.
Excel Fab Tech is a true design-build firm, utilizing our design staff and proprietary technology and software tools. Structural analysis is performed in-house using state-of-the-art large deflection, non-linear finite element analysis, with computer aided form-finding and patterning of the fabric surfaces.
We install the structures we design in collaboration with owners, Construction Managers, General Contractors and Architects. We are also available to consult, advise, inspect service and in many cases refurbish tensile membrane structures.
