hen it comes to tent installations, it's all about
getting clients, customers and attendees to
remember the event, the environs and the
overall ambience of the experience. Providing
installations that " wow " is the core philosophy
behind today's successful tent companies-it's what makes these
hardworking companies stand out from the proverbial crowd. InTents
is pleased to showcase some recent projects that truly shine!
A PRIVATE PENINSULA
Imagine being seated at a wedding
reception for 250 guests on a private
peninsula in Waldoboro, Maine,
with locally harvested ferns artfully
suspended overhead. This describes
the incredible seated reception that
Zach Wilson, president of Greenwich
Tents Co., enjoyed at his own wedding.
" Our 20-meter Losberger clearspan
structure held 250 guests, and Sara Fay
Egan Events and Jackson Durham Events
did an incredible job transforming this
reception structure to feel like an extension
of the property, " Wilson says. " The
stunning suspended greenery installation-we
loved how it transformed our
clearspan structure into a memorable
dining experience for guests! "
The main reception structure was a
20-meter Losberger clearspan structure,
installed with clear tops, walls and gables.
The guests moved from the reception
structure into a dedicated dancing/
lounge tent, which was an authentic
66-by-66-foot Sperry Tent will full custom
drapery along the ceiling and walls. Many
frame tents by Anchor Industries Inc.
formed the back-of-house setup, which
fully enclosed the restroom trailer for
guest comfort and provided a green
room/vendor storage tent complete with
loading dock, as well as the main catering
tent. All were connected via flooring, steps
and railings to the main event spaces.
" Located on a wild blueberry thicket
that was only mowed a few times a year,
the ground was uneven and pitched
heavily toward the coastline in many
areas, so all tents were installed on a
finished, leveled flooring, " Wilson says.
Because the total square footage exceeded
10,000 square feet, the installation
by a crew of 14 was approximately two
weeks in duration, and the removal was
approximately five days.
" Due to the extended installation and
removal process, all crew members were
housed in Maine, about 15 minutes from
the site, with lunches delivered to the
site each day and per diem for breakfast
and dinner, " Wilson says. " Also, the crew
occasionally had to contend with fastmoving
thunderstorms that would roll
across the peninsula at a rapid pace due to
the heat and humidity of the area during
that time frame. "
Installation vehicles were also required
to cross a tidal pathway that was covered
with water during high tide, so all vehicles
needed to avoid entering or leaving the
site during multi-hour periods.
