Tooele Army Depot TFS Structure

Signature Structures is the most unique company in the industry in many ways. Although a manufacturer ourselves, our main claim to fame may be that the vast levels of experience our team possesses allow us to install, dismantle, inspect, repair or refurbish any fabric structure in the world, regardless of the original manufacturer. Our work at the Tooele Army Depot in 2016 is a prime example of our capabilities


In 2009, the US Army’s Edgewood Chemical Biological Center purchased a TFS style tension fabric structure system for use in connection with a project at Aberdeen Proving Grounds in Edgewood, MD. The structure was never deployed. It was kept in storage and in January of 2016 when another project, this one located at Tooele Army Depot in Utah offered the Army the opportunity to utilize the structure system. However, no original drawings or specifications were available to assist whoever would eventually be installing the structure system. The Army also did not know if all of the necessary parts to properly install it were intact.

The Army clearly needed a company with the expertise and experience to ensure that a) all of the parts needed to safely and properly install the system were present or could be procured, and b) could potentially install the system without the construction drawings and specifications that would typically be present. When the Army reviewed the Statement of Qualifications submitted by Signature Structures, it was clear that they were the right company for the job. All of Signature’s personnel had extensive knowledge of the TFS system and decades of experience.


The first thing Signature’s site supervisor did was inspect the system on the ground and inventory all parts. Parts that were missing or damaged were quickly and cost-effectively replaced thanks to Signature’s ability to work with a vast network of suppliers. The structure system was then installed by a composite crew of Signature’s installers and Army provided personnel, ahead of schedule and under budget.

Customer Appreciation

The Army was extremely pleased with the results the Signature Team provided. They provided an enthusiastic recommendation of Signature to another military branch on a similar project.
