Frequently Asked Questions

What architectural features of the building make it superior?

As evidenced by the more than 60,000 installations worldwide, the Albaddad structure benefits from lower capital costs, lower energy demands and lower life-cycle costs. Built with a 20-plus year performance architectural membrane and a non-corroding aluminum substructure, it also features exceptional durability and proven long-term performance.

What about vandalism and security?

Albaddad structures are located in some of the worlds' most populated regions with no vandalism problems. An optional 8½-foot-high Albaddad Shield vandal-proof Hard-Wall system is available for extreme security-sensitive applications. Security is the same as for any building with windows. Motion detectors to set off alarms or to summon security or police are used in the same way as for other structures.

What color choices do I have for the membrane?

There are many color options, all of which are proven colorfast and weatherproof. You can even mix and match colors at no additional cost by choosing an attractive wainscot.

How are the acoustics?

Albaddad structures have been used successfully on hundreds of acoustically sensitive applications. The curved profile of the structure creates an interior free from conventional flat walls and corners. The soft interior fabric walls effectively absorb sound, resulting in outstanding acoustic properties.

Does it meet the building code?

Albaddad structure is designed to meet most building code requirements around the globe. Once you are ready to proceed, we will supply a comprehensive permitting package, complete with drawings and supporting calculations, all stamped by a licensed engineer certified in your region. After placing your order, these drawings are provided free of charge for most applications.

Who oversees the project?

Once a contractor is chosen, our technical consultant will remain on-site during the build to monitor the project throughout construction to ensure quality is never compromised and your structure is erected to our exacting standard. Albaddad Technical Consultant attends to your site from start of erection, to completion to ensure that your structure is erected to our engineering standards.

Can we change or add to the structure in the future?

The Albaddad structure is a prefabricated, modular building design, which allows for easy expansion, or reduction, in the future.

Can it be attached to an existing building?

Yes. Albaddad structure can easily be attached to an existing building through our sealed connecting corridor system, available in widths of 10’, 14’3” or 19’2”. The structure can also be butted up directly to a conventional building.

How easy is it to relocate Albaddad structure?

One of the unique characteristics of the Albaddad structure is that it can be dismantled, reconfigured and re-erected for a number of applications during the life of the structure. This is an easy and cost-effective solution.

Are engineering costs included?

Yes. You do not need to budget any extra for engineering of the structure itself, since it is included in the price of your Albaddad structure.

Could we build a conventional metal building cheaper?

It is very unlikely that you could find a more cost-effective use of your building budget. Please refer to our Comparison Matrix for more details.

How fast can Albaddad structure be erected?

We inventory up to 3.5 million square feet of product for immediate delivery. Structures can be erected at a rate of up to 6,500 square feet per day for insulated structures, and 4,300 square feet per day for non-insulated structures. The entire project takes a fraction of the time compared to conventional construction alternatives.
