One approach is to enclose the area with heavy (8 or 10 mil) plastic sheeting, paying particular attention to the ceiling. You’ll need to add some kind of supports to drop it well below 15’ and, if not already partitioned, to support the sidewalls. You see this a lot on construction sites. It can make a big difference.

Allowance for condensation drainage from both the metal barn roof as well as inside the bubble may need to be addressed, especially if you use a flame for heating. Ventilation also needs to be considered.
