We are very happy to have the opportunity to write a letter of recommendation for FabriTec Structures, LLC. We have collaborated with FabriTec on numerous occasions. In each and every case, the individuals that we dealt with were extremely knowledgeable, professional, creative, and easy to work with. They always had the project budget and schedule in mind and delivered what they promised.
One recent example is a project we collaborated on at DFW International Airport. The new 8,000-space parking garage at Terminal A is accented with a signature fabric tensile canopy over one of its primary entrances. At 63 feet tall, 63 feet long, and 50 wide, the structure wraps around an approach span bridge leading up to the garage. The canopy makes attractive use of 4,815 square feet of Sheerfill-II-HT and approximately 6 tons of structural steel.
While the design and as-built finished product are quite impressive, the schedule that FabriTec was able to meet was nothing short of amazing. Due to a highly compressed construction schedule, FabriTec was given 10 days to mobilize and complete their construction work while working mostly at night. They successfully rose to the challenge and delivered a premium product on time.
Positive experiences like this and many others have made working with FabriTec a very desirable experience. We are currently collaborating with them again on a few other projects, and we hope to continue this relationship into the future.
