School's Out for Summer!

By Field & Lawn

Every day is a school day for the Field and Lawn team.

We love working with clients who are looking to do something a little bit different. Something that tests our experience and skills to transform a space. The college which happens to be just right across the road from our Bristol branch gave us exactly that.

The college's annual leavers' service takes place on college grounds and rather than build a stage, they looked to utilize what they already had - namely the large set of steps in an open area outside the main building.

Due to the unconventional marquee that was required to suit the steps, the Field and Lawn team worked hard to come up with a creative solution.

The 2.4m legs at the top of the steps are pinned directly into the grass and the rest of the marquee is built with a 4m leg and ballasted. The college also required an open gable end at the top of the steps and 3m walls for the rest of the marquee.

This was definitely not your traditional marquee, but it provided exactly what the client needed. The build went off without a hitch and the leavers' service, once again, was a great success.
