Sprung structures are ideal for disaster recovery buildings as they are immediately deployable for many emergency operation applications such as drive through testing facilities, temporary housing, offices, medical facilities and more.

With a limited need for foundations and attractive energy-efficient insulation packages available, Sprung structures are also easily dismantled and relocated for any future man-made or natural disaster relief building needs. Sprung Structures keeps over a million square feet of inventory that can be deployed within days. Once delivered, our structures are built faster than any other building system.
