Vertical Building Solutions (formerly Cover All North) is one of western Canada’s most respected providers of pre-engineered tensioned fabric structures.

With more than 15 years’ experience in fabric building construction and over 1,000 buildings completed, Vertical Buildings can accommodate your building needs.

Utilizing the highest quality manufacturers and experienced professional installers, Vertical Buildings offers several different styles of structure for most industry applications.

Vertical Building Solutions has considerable experience in the mining and oil and gas sectors, installing remote maintenance facilities, construction shelters and bulk material storage.

The company knows, through firsthand experience, the unique challenges of living and working in remote areas with harsh weather conditions, and offers services including design, engineering, manufacturing, transportation and installation to make your workers’ lives easier.

Quick set up fabric buildings at remote mining locations

Ambitious timelines and tough conditions are no problem for Vertical Building Solutions. The company has extensive experience providing rapid deployment of customized building solutions.

One of the primary advantages of fabric buildings is that they can be set up and moved to a different location when the job site moves.

In the mining, oil and gas and construction industries time is precious and the speed at which Vertical can provide your workforce with a suitable base can save you money.

Portable air structures offering superior protection

Vertical’s highly portable air structures require very little manpower to erect and deploy considerably faster than conventional temporary structures.

Wherever you need superior protection for workers, whether it be in challenging or dangerous environments, Vertical can provide durable shelters to fit your specific work-site requirements.

Air shelters are available to rent or purchase and offer the following benefits:

  • Blast-resistant shelter for staff at dangerous work sites
  • Instant storage facilities for materials, tools and equipment
  • Weather protection for workers in extreme heat or cold and in rain or snow

Engineered steel truss buildings

Available in a range of profiles and configurations, truss designs support building spans from 24ft to 160ft wide but can be assembled to achieve any length required.

Vertical’s trusses and steel framing system are fabricated to CAN/CSA A660 standards, ensuring your structure complies with Canadian building codes, regional snow and wind load design criteria, and is manufactured to industry-leading quality standards.

Non-toxic building cover for the mining industry

The tensioned fabric membrane is produced from non-toxic organic polymers and is 100% recyclable. Each membrane consists of a woven scrim substrate offering rip, tear and puncture resistance, as well as a 14oz fabric and coating to provide abrasion resistance, UV protection and color fastness.

Building covers feature a 15-year pro-rated warranty (fire-rated covers and insulated liners are available as options).

Along with base building systems, Vertical Building Solutions offers a range of compatible accessory and fit-out items. These include:

  • Foundation options
  • Windows and doors
  • Process equipment
  • Heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC)
  • Electrical sub-systems

Supporting its field installation teams, Vertical’s service shops are certified to CWB standards for structural and assembly welding.

Prefabricated modular camp systems

Vertical Building Solutions access to multiple factories and hundreds of workers, enabling the company to undertake large-scale projects while maintaining quality control.

By prefabricating all detailed components in the controlled factory environment, Vertical avoids the limitations of remote area access. This system is particularly well suited to locations where construction is restricted by weather.

Modules are made from COR-TEN steel which is super durable, non-combustible, and resistant to natural disasters. They are purpose built and designed to ship easily using current Sea Can configurations. PICS modules will outlast anything on the market and will be a solid investment for any company with a long term strategy for asset retention. These modules are built tough to withstand the harshest conditions and multiple moves without damage to the super structure.

Energy-efficient buildings with cutting-edge technology

Vertical’s buildings are highly energy efficient, incorporating sustainable materials and state-of-the-art technology. LED lighting and low-flow plumbing appliances are included to limit the environmental footprint and construction waste and pollution is minimized.
