From the first time you reach out to us, until you have a finished product, a lot happens. Here you can read more about how we work, and what we do in the various steps until your fabric building is complete. And the most important thing for us is that you are satisfied with the result.
Analysing requirements and customer dialogue
When you contact us, you will be greeted by friendly and knowledgeable professionals who are dedicated to understanding your needs. It is one of the most important steps of the process. Only when we have a broad understanding of your needs, we can guide you to the best solution. Through a thorough dialogue and needs analysis, the O.B.Wiik team maps out your specific requirements, including size, purpose, climate conditions and timeframes. And together we put a plan forward.
Design and engineering
Based on your needs and specifications, our team of experienced engineers and designers starts developing your solution. Whether it is a standard solution or a tailor-made building, we use advanced programs, which create accurate technical drawings, models and calculations. It ensures that the finished product meets the necessary safety standards and functional requirements according to your needs. Here, we also take into account what the purpose of the building is going to be. Is there extra demanding weather or other conditions which mean that the building needs to be reinforced? It will then be taken into consideration in this part of the process.
Production and material selection
Once the design is ready, the production phase begins at O.B.Wiiks modern production facility equipped with advanced machinery and skilled professionals. Quality and durability are the keywords for us, which is why we only use high-quality materials. From hard-wearing steel structures to robust PVC textiles, we ensure that the complete building can withstand demanding conditions and long-term use. We have a number of standard modules which we use in addition to producing special modules if there is an emergency. This contributes to fast delivery and high quality.
Transportation and logistics
After the construction has been manufactured, it is properly packed and prepared for transport. O.B.Wiik has delivered or Wiikhalls since 1912 in more than 100 countries worldwide and has a well-developed logistics system that ensures that the building is delivered to the right place at the right time and in the right condition. Whether it is a national or international delivery, we take care of everything from loading and transport to logistics and customs formalities.
When the materials arrive at the construction site, the O.B.Wiik team takes care of the assembly. With their expertise and experience, they work efficiently and safely to assemble the building. Careful planning and professionally executed assembly are crucial to the final results. This phase can be done in a day or take a few weeks, depending on the buildings size and design. We set up the world’s largest fabric building (700x40m) in just 9 weeks, thanks to good planning and efficient work. We also focus on a good working environment and that legislation is complied with throughout the process.
Adaptation and quality control
In order to optimize the finished buildings functionality, it is important to adapt the hall according to needs and function of use. This includes adapting the foundation, connections to infrastructure such as electricity and water, as well as the installation of any special equipment or additional functions. We then ensure that the building meets all the necessary regulations and standards before it is put into use. Before the fisished building is handed over to you, it undergoes thorough quality control and testing. We do a thorough check of the hall and test that everything works as it should. This includes testing lighting, ventilation systems, emergency exits and other technical aspects that are essential for good and safe operation.
Once that is done, you can use your quality Wiikhall, which will last for many, many years 🤝
