Marquees for Industrial and Other Uses
Marquees by their very nature, are very flexible and multi-functional. Their features make them very adaptable and can be adopted for many for many uses and applications.
- they provide temporary accommodation
- transportable quickly and relatively easily
- they are modular in construction and can be adapted on site
- they offer protection from the weather; from basic wind and rain protection to fully air conditioned
- they can provide privacy
Marquee Applications in Industry and Other Non-Leisure Use
Marquees can be used to cover lower level ground works and construction. We use older walls and roofs that are no longer suitable for events, parties, etc. Marquees can protect an area to ensure constant working with no weather interruptions.
Modern clearspan marquees can be located almost anywhere all year round. Extra space can therefore be created for peak times or special sales e.g. Ellis Brigham Outdoor Sports hold their annual sale at Braehead, Glasgow in a large marquee at the beginning of August each year. Sales space during renovation periods are now common uses for marquees.
Marquees for Summer Events
Most summer events set aside a high proportion of marquee space for retail space e.g. craft fairs, food halls, sales units. The variety in widths and the incremental increase in size means that retail units can vary in size from 3m wide market stall to a large 24m wide craft fair e.g. as provided to 3D2D Craft Fairs at the Scottish Game Fair in Scone.
Marquees for use in Warehousing
We can offer temporary warehousing using our larger marquees which are high enough to drive a forklift in and out or indeed a smaller unit for those needing additional storage. A marquee within a warehouse can also offer a small internal area which can be kept easily heated e.g. Arran Aromatics install their packing line within a long thin marquee so that the staff can work quickly and efficiently without the added expense of heating the whole warehouse. During the winter season internal marquee prices are also very reasonable – as there is no weather risks associated.

Marquees for use in Manufacturing
Extra manufacturing space can be introduced by the use of a marquee either to meet extra demand, at peak periods, during refurbishment or in an emergency. Large spaces can be hard to heat in the winter and therefore an internal marquee can be erected inside to crease a smaller heated space. During the winter season internal marquee prices are also very reasonable as there is no weather risks associated.
Marquees for use in Public Services
We have provided various marquees for the police over the years, for example, to protect items of evidence, checking vehicles, staff facilities at remote locations. Sometimes these activities are planned but very often due to the nature of each event a quick response is required. Discretion however, is always a priority. We have also provided small units for Caledonian MacBrayne to undertake security checks at ferry terminals.
Marquees for Emergency Cover
Flooding, fire or any unexpected emergency that requires shelter for either persons or goods can be solved very quickly by the use of a marquee. Marquees can be quickly installed for emergency cover whether it is for short term use during the immediate aftermath of a situation or longer term, during the renovation of a particular facility.
