Sprung Structures - Engineered Building Solutions for the Mining Industry

Sprung Instant Structures is a member of the Sprung Group of Companies, established in 1887. Sprung has achieved international recognition by providing building solutions for thousands of different applications in over 90 countries around the world.

Sprung is the inventor of the stressed membrane structure, engineered to accommodate the need for enclosed space quickly and economically.

This innovative building solution utilises architectural membrane panels placed under high tension within a non-corroding aluminum substructure. Sprung provides an optional superior performing, energy-efficient, Johns Manville formaldehyde-free insulation package. Widths 9.1m - 60.9m (30ft - 200ft) by any length.

The benefits of working with Sprung include:

  • Speed of delivery and construction
  • Large clear span interior
  • Energy-efficient insulation package
  • Relocatable design
  • Limited foundation requirements

Designed to provide immediate solutions for mining applications

Each Sprung building is manufactured from the highest quality products and materials, and individually tested using strict performance measures. With a specialised high-strength aluminum alloy, our substructure has an unlimited lifespan.

Sprung's buildings are engineered to meet or exceed the requirements of most building codes and standards. Our structures are generally available within three weeks of an order. Applications include: large haul truck vehicle maintenance facilities, bulk storage, safety meeting and break rooms, food services, warehousing, winter hoarding and recreation.

Engineered fabric buildings for mining applications

The Sprung structure technology is a more cost-effective approach that results in shorter construction time, total flexibility and greater reliability.

The structure has been proven around the world with thousands of applications including military installations, educational institutions, mining, oil and gas exploration and disaster recovery operations. Engineering is the most important factor to consider when choosing a structure and ours is second to none.

Fabric structures for extreme environments

Each Sprung fabric structure is manufactured from the highest quality products and materials, and is individually tested using strict performance measures. Our structures have been proven to perform in some of the toughest environments in the world.

Relocatable structures

Investing in a Sprung structure opens up a world of options you may have not considered. The non-corroding aluminum substructure and our high-quality performance fabric provide for an incredibly long lifespan. The performance architectural membrane provides all-weather protection from the elements with up to a 20-year guarantee.

Our structures are designed and engineered for ease of movement. Sprung structures can be assembled and disassembled in sections and re-configured for different applications. Since they can be relocated, often the same structures can serve many different purposes at many different sites.

If your space needs to change over time, your Sprung structure can change with it. Its modular design allows you to add modules, thereby adding additional space immediately.

Limited foundation requirements

The lightweight aluminum substructure reduces the size of footings or foundations when compared to conventional steel buildings, provided appropriate soil conditions exist. Less permanent applications require no subsurface foundations for structures up to 48.768m (160ft) wide.

Patented technology

Sprung designs are based on simplicity. Our buildings can be put up in a fraction of the time it takes for a conventional structure. We have built an international reputation for building structures very quickly, including for use in disaster recovery efforts.

All components come to the site pre-fabricated. Arches are raised and the exterior membrane installed within a few days of commencing work. As a result, all contractor services have a roof overhead very early in the erection cycle.

This allows our facilities to be constructed even in the coldest months of the year, with very little delay. We have an inventory of more than 2 million ft² (185,806.08m²), which allows us to mobilise very quickly.
