This aerial view of the venue below shows
just how small a space the installers had
to contend with, but the quality of the
end result, shown to the right, speaks for
itself. Photos courtesy of AAble Rents.

W
hen the word " estate " is mentioned,
one immediately imagines
* 20x30 Century®
high peak frame
* (7) 10x10 Century high
peak frames
* 15x20 white party frame
* 10x10 party gable frame
* 330 guests
* 15-day installation
spacious grounds with room to spare. But
when AAble Rents, based in Cleveland,
Ohio, was hired to install the tents and
flooring for a wedding and reception at a
private estate, it quickly became apparent
that space, or rather the lack of it, was going
to be quite a challenge.
" There was a narrow and winding oneway
road leading to the property, with only
enough space to accommodate a box truck, "
explains Ramsey Duqum, CEO of AAble
Rents. " We had to carefully schedule the
trucks' arrival to ensure passage for cars. "
Of course, for a wedding and reception
with 330 guests, the amount of equipment
and material that had to be delivered to
the event site was enormous and included
an 81-by-111-foot Tidewater®
sailcloth, a
10-by-20-meter Röder clearspan, a 20-by30-foot
Century®
high peak and seven
10-by-10-foot Century high peak tents.

" The install and strike schedules were
meticulously orchestrated by ensuring
vendors were aware of their designated
time windows for loading and unloading, "
Duqum says. " Larger trucks had to be
unloaded further from the property, with
materials handled by Tent OX™ and Moffett
to transport them to the tent location. "
But as he recalls, the challenges surrounding
space constraints didn't end
there. " The design and placement of the
grand entrance staircase that provided
guests access to the wedding and reception
tents required considerable planning
as well. Due to the limited space, we had to
meticulously calculate the degree of stepdown
and angles to fit it perfectly into the
designated area. "
While the lack of space presented the
most challenges, Duqum says the highlight
of the project was the installation of
a groundbreaking Floating Exterior Leg
Suspension System designed by AAble
Space constraints are overcome to achieve an overwhelming success.
