For the dedicated minds behind GNB Global Inc. (GNB), formerly G&B Portable Fabric Buildings, offering an unbeatable product and an incredible experience is the core of what they do. As an industry pioneer in the creation, design, and construction of tension fabric solutions, they have been making waves with their abilities for more than two decades – but now, with the launch of an updated brand and website, their online presence truly matches what they can do on the ground.
Co-founded by Alex Lentowich and Ryan Hunter, the GNB team has helped companies all over North America solve their shelter & storage problems. Focusing on customized, precisely-engineered fabric buildings that can be quickly erected without sacrificing durability, their work has taken them from remote power plants in the mountains of northern BC to sweltering summer projects around the Gulf of Mexico. They have worked for energy producers, construction companies, mining groups, and even global tech giant Facebook on one of their latest additions on their work campus.
Recently, GNB invested in a large brand update. Partnering with William Joseph Communications, a professional western Canadian marketing agency headquartered in Calgary, AB, the organizations worked together to create a new logo, marketing materials, and an overhauled website. They even tweaked the name, changing from the old G&B Portable Fabric Buildings to reflect the fresh new look. The new site shows some of the major projects the team has worked on, and highlights their capabilities in the field.
Customers come to GNB for their expertise and the immense potential of the products they offer. Each job starts with thorough analysis of client needs and the site’s capabilities, ensuring that everything is designed and structured to maximize the structure’s performance. From there, the engineers get to work on the specified foundations – temporary or permanent, movable or locked – accounting for height, width, purpose, material, weather, snow loads, and terrain. In all, they create a building that’s tailored to that specific site, column-free, well-lit, and completely protected. After that, it’s transported in, set up, and tested – a process which, from start to finish, can be done in just a few weeks, even in remote locations.
Another benefit of GNB’s work is their unbeatable 16-year warranty on new buildings. Standing behind every single project they work on, they offer several maintenance plan options, as well as DIY minor patch kits (matched to the colour of the fabric). With their prepaid maintenance plans, they send out a professional crew to check the integrity of the building each year, performing rigorous safety tests and keeping everything in the best condition possible. Under these tests, a fabric building can last up to 25 years or more, providing thousands of square feet of protected space during its entire lifespan.
Many of the industries that GNB serves – oil & gas, power generation, mining, etc. – are still going strong, and their operations still need the shelter and space the GNB buildings provide. From temporary offices, to emergency response centres, to warehousing and supply space, it’s a business that shows no signs of slowing down just yet.
