In 1995, the City of Broomfield, Colorado, built a new Service Center for which a total of three Sprung structures were erected. Included was a 60’ wide x 120’ long general warehousing facility, a 40′ wide x 60′ long salt storage facility, and another 60′ wide x 60′ long salt and sand storage structure.

So impressed with the performance and cost-effectiveness of Sprung’s tensioned membrane structures, the City of Broomfield decided to purchase a fourth 50’ wide x 150’ long Sprung warehouse structure in 1999.

In early 2000, the City had an additional requirement for a salt storage facility and reviewed several building alternatives. Once again, city council decided that a Sprung structure was the best, most cost-effective solution based on its past performance. Because of its rust-free aluminum substructure, Sprung structures are fully relocatable and low on maintenance costs. When the City of Broomfield required a separate relocatable warehouse structure in 2001 for its bus line system, the city again turned to Sprung to erect a 50’ wide x 170’ long warehousing structure.


“Over the past 12 years the City and County of Broomfield has purchased six Sprung structures and they have met our expectations with almost no maintenance costs. The positive aspect of these structures is they can be relocated to different locations with minimal costs. The City and County of Broomfield has been able to erect the last three structures using our in-house staff along with a technician from Sprung. I would like to thank Sprung Instant Structures for providing facilities that have had a positive effect on our city.”
