Sprung tensioned fabric structures are ideal for use as mining buildings in any environment. They can be built in remote locations under rigid construction timelines, and with limited foundation requirements. Sprung structures are engineered to shed snow and withstand extreme wind loads, while our optional premium insulation package provides comfortable mining camp buildings. Despite being engineered as permanent structures, Sprung’s relocatable, modular design, and its ability to be crane-lifted into place, allows it to be adapted to virtually any application. It can be modified quickly to changing priorities as it is rapidly expanded, reconfigured, dismantled and rebuilt into all types of mining buildings.
Many in the mining industry, including engineers, purchasing agents and project managers, have made Sprung their choice for mining warehouse facilities, camps and a wide variety of other mining buildings. Sprung structures were used for mining equipment housing for the Resolution Copper Mine, as mine production enclosures at Ekati Diamond Mine, as haul truck maintenance facilities for EPSA Caserones in the rugged Andes mountains, as mining processing facilities for Laprarie’s Horn River, BC mining operations, and as on-site mining camp buildings and bulk storage at Kennecott’s Bingham Canyon Mine.
