FabriTec Structures designs and builds amphitheaters, which are open-air venues for musical and stage performances. The amphitheaters they build range from relatively simple local bandshells in public parks, all the way to monumental acoustically tuned performance spaces with covered seating.
Built in half the time and at around half the cost of a conventional building, FabriTec precision-crafted tensile membrane structures give architects, city planners, and developers a great alternative to conventional construction. There are shapes, forms, and surfaces that can be created with a lightweight fabric architecture that cannot be replicated with any other method of construction. Tensile fabric structures are low maintenance, provide abundant natural light, and are sustainable.
Some amphitheaters FabriTec develops are commercial ventures by companies intending to use the venues for concerts or performances, while others are municipal projects where cities are interested in creating a location for public performances and gathering places in their community. Bandshells, bandstands, and amphitheaters have become increasingly popular among cities looking to develop their local economy with a venue for orchestras, bands, choirs, theatrical performances, and other community events like fairs.
FabriTec has a long history of developing tensile structure projects in both design-build and design-assist roles.
