Greystone Construction, an authorized dealer for Natural Light Fabric Structures, recently completed a new salt shed for the Minnesota Department of Transportation in Rochester, MN. The project consisted of a 100′ x 160′ Natural Light Fabric Building erected on 4′ above grade concrete piers. The tension membrane fabric structure spans 12′ precast concrete bunker panels.

Natural Light Fabric Structures are ideal for commodity storage for many reasons:
- Buildings are designed to maximize air floor
- Polyethlyene fabric substantially reduces the risk of condensation compared to wood/steel buildings
- Buildings’ high clearances create a safe working environment for truck and payloader operators
- Building steel is galvanized which reduces the risk of rusting in a highly corrosive enviorment like salt
