Kingdom Projects decided to aggressively expand their solid
waste collection and retrieval services from the current 2.3
million pounds to 3.5 million pounds per year. But first,
they needed to expand their facility and equipment
quickly, economically and efficiently.
"We had a window of opportunity to purchase a previously
used baler but we needed to expand our building to handle
additional collection and the baler," says Lon Little,
general manager. Kingdom Projects. "We knew we had our
answer when we found the fabric building. The installation
took only eight days as compared to numerous weeks with a
Not only has the 60 x 80 foot fabric covered building
allowed Kingdom Projects to quickly increase production by
30 per cent and employ additional people, the building has
also decreased operating costs. "The cost savings in going
with a fabric building were realized in a number of areas,"
says Little. "Not only did purchasing the building save
us tens-of-thousands of dollars compared to other buildings,
but our operating costs are less because we have little need
for lights during the day and our building maintenance costs
are almost nil."
The fabric buildings unique cover allows natural light
into the building creating a work environment that is like
"working outside on a bright sunny day." The natural light
and the clear-span space create a work-friendly environment
to operate the 20-foot high baler, forklift and skid loader.
"Our employees prefer working in this building compared to
our steel building," says Little.
Although Kingdom Projects has just completed the expansion,
there are already plans for future growth. "We want to take
further advantage of the building height by constructing an
elevated sorting station," says Little. "The building is
working very well for us because there is a lot of room to
move our 2,000 lb. bales and we have a sufficient number of
built-in bunker stations on the floor."
