JUST SAY

WHEN A COMPLEX AND DIFFICULT
INSTALL COMES ALONG, RESIST
THE TEMPTATION TO DECLINE.
by Pamela Mills-Senn

A

willingness to tackle tough installs requires steely nerves,
can-do attitudes, experienced and talented crews and lots
of planning. But when it all comes together, challenging
projects not only bring a sense of satisfaction and
accomplishment, they enhance a company's reputation,
delivering new opportunities and respect. From uncooperative weather
and time constraints to large crowds and pandemic complications, here
are three companies and their installations that defied the odds.

THE CHALLENGES: GRASS
FIELD, ELABORATE DECOR,
METAL DETECTORS
It wasn't exactly a case of "get off my
lawn" but the June 2019 install Loane
Bros. Inc. undertook on the Sagamore
Farm, an American Thoroughbred horse
farm in Baltimore County, Md., came
close. Headquartered in Baltimore, the
family-owned and operated business has
been serving the area for six generations,
says Bryan Loane, president.
The install was for a private wedding
reception, with the main structure
being a 50-by-120-foot Navi-Trac® tent.
Multiple smaller tents were set up in
other areas of the farm, such as those for

catering, a guest games day, a misting
tent, one for dispensing party favors
and a DJ tent.
What made this particular project
challenging was the size of the reception
tent and its placement on an all-grass
practice ϐield used by the Baltimore
Ravens, says Loane.
"We were allowed to use this location
as long as we guaranteed that the grass
would be perfect after the wedding,"
he recalls. "This was a big challenge,
as a ton of equipment needed to be
delivered across the ϐield to the tent
site-not only the tent, but generators,
furniture and restroom trailers, and
then all the catering and decor items."
