The rain plan decision to install the 40-by-60foot Navi-Trac® was made the night before
the wedding, so The Greenwich Tent Co. team
installed the tent, as well as the walkway and
stage, the morning of the event.

Under the tent tops, Greenwich Tent
installed its proprietary ϐloor system
throughout the dining, cocktail and
prayer tents, with custom aisles and staging. The team installed a fully leveled subϐloor throughout, covered with custom
whitewash and chestnut plank ϐloors. The
ϐlooring created the perfect earthy yet elegant foundation for the crisp white decor,

Installation week was hot, approaching
95 degrees, and the crew leaders and
project manager provided ice, water, energy drinks and lunch for the crew. With
rain in the forecast for the event weekend, the team took precautions to ensure that ϐloors remained dry and clean
during load-in. Several rain tents went
in within 24 hours of the party, which required a crew on-call to execute.
On Tuesday prior to the event, the team
began installation. It was originally scheduled for Monday, but the site was not ready,
as the venue was an active construction
site. " After being told the site would be
leveled, graded and sodded prior to our
arrival, we went to ϐlag the site the day before install was scheduled to begin, " Wilson
says. " We found that the site was still dirt,

not leveled, and there were obstructions
within the tent footprint that would need
to be cut and removed. Our project manager worked with the construction foreman,
planner and hotel general manager to create a plan to get the site ready for install in
just 24 hours. "
To ensure a safe installation, the crew
leveled the ϐloor underneath the Losberger structure, which was not originally planned, and utilized a number of
precautions to make sure that the whitewashed ϐloor would remain pristine during load in up until guests entered the
tent. " On top of that, the property roadways were too tight and hilly for tractor
trailers or gooseneck trailers, which we
usually use to transport the equipment
needed, " Wilson says. " We utilized a
number of 6K Lulls to load-in and out the
AC units, generators, structures, ϐlooring
and auxiliary equipment. The cocktail
tent-a 2,500-square-foot Sperry with
leveled ϐloor up to 6 feet-was inaccessible by any machinery, including using
a Tent OX™, so our team hand-carried all
equipment to the installation site. "
The main structure and ϐloor were installed in one day and the crew had four
days of setup for auxiliary structures. But
