Membrane Structures

Membrane structures are beautiful, lightweight forms that can be readily adapted to a variety of applications including long span roofs, canopies, façade enclosures, and interior finishes.  Their design demands specific analytic expertise as well as in-depth understanding of material options and behaviors.   Walter P Moore has extensive expertise in the creation, design, and construction of elegant, lightweight membrane structures, including applications for sports facilities, entertainment venues, transit and airport terminals, and convention centers.  

Our team of experts includes the former lead product developer for the largest tensile membrane contractor in the world and two members of the American Society of Civil Engineers Committee that develops the U.S. code standard for Tensile Membrane Structures.
