Marquee Structure

Let's start with the structure itself. The term 'clearspan' refers to the absence of interior poles in the marquee aluminium framework, allowing clear space inside the structure. The full footprint of the marquee is therefore available, making floor planning so much easier with clear sightlines throughout.

The structure is staked directly into the ground with baseplates, there are no guy ropes required outside to hold it into place, this not only makes a cleaner line but also helps if space on site is a bit limited. This strong framework structure also allows the clearspan marquee to be used all year round. In the colder months doors and heating are easily added. Additionally, the marquee can even be built on hardstanding surfaces, and secured with weights.

Marquee Sizes & Layout

This modular marquee structure is built in 3m sections, making it the most flexible space for any event. Starting with a gable width of 3m, 6m, 9m, 12m or 15m, and then building this up in 3m sections, enables any length of marquee required. Marquees can also be seamlessly joined together to create a larger space, entrance areas, chill-out spaces, covered toilet marquees and catering spaces to name just a few.

And if you wanted to separate an area with a partial wall or a temporary reveal curtain all that is possible too. This flexibility allows freedom in the design process that not only works with your site, but with requirements you may have for your event. Maybe you want to keep the dance floor or stage area covered whilst you are dining in the day for example.

The unique design of the marquee extends to the location of the window walls, which can be placed strategically to capture the best light and view. Alternatively, all walls can be left solid if you're planning an evening party perhaps. Similarly, the roof can be customised in the same way, you could add some clear sections for a feature or even have the entire marquee in clear material.

Marquee Interiors

When it comes to special events like weddings, birthdays, and corporate events, we would always include soft interior linings for the marquee roof and walls, as well as a wooden floor base with carpet. These features provide a comfortable and visually appealing setting for you and your guests.

With these essentials in place, you can design the space according to your exact requirements with lighting, furniture, dance floor and lounge areas as well as practical considerations such as catering and other services. You have complete freedom to add your own personal touches to the marquee space, making your event uniquely memorable.

To summarise

So in summary, if you are looking for a versatile outdoor structure space that will cater to your specific size and style of event at any time of the year, then you may just want to take a closer look at the clearspan marquee. Its unique features and versatility really make it stand out from other structures and help you create a memorable event.
