Building Code

With more than 12,000 structures erected in over 100 countries, Sprung has developed a significant depth of knowledge of international standards.

Sprung structures are designed with an environmental seal, as they have no eaves and the wall/roof sections are fully insulated. This airtight building envelope, combined with our high-performance membrane and thicker insulation, is more energy-efficient than conventional building systems. This allows us to comply with nearly every local standard. Additionally, we provide the right information to each client’s mechanical engineer, enabling them to design and apply suitable HVAC systems. Our structures are designed to the following, as applicable:

ASCE-7 “Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures”
