Tensile structure is a construction of elements carrying only tension and no compression or bending. The term tensile should not be confused with tensegrity, which is a structural form with both tension and compression elements. Tensile structures are the most common type of thinshell structures with life span warranty more than 20 years.
A steel structure is a metal structure which is made of structural steel components connected to each other to carry loads and provide rigidity. Because of the high strength of steel, these structures are reliable and require less raw material than some other types of structure such as concrete.

Good regards for safety, completed additional works regarding decoration, clean up after works completed to a very high standard.
For well over ten years I have had the opportunity to work with GSF Construction on projects from modernizations to complex alteration and new construction involving phasing, difficult site conditions and tight time frames. In all cases GSF Construction exceeded my expectations and did so in ways that ensured the school’s schedule and budget goals were met…Once selected (unanimously) by the selection committee, GSF Construction set out to help us with the constructability review and cost estimating. With concern over the rising cost of steel and energy, and its impact on budget, GSF collaborated with the district and design team on cost savings including multiple subcontractors bidding to ensure the budget was met.
Very professional and technically competent job from the whole team.
