Client:The Royal Navy

HMS Somerset

Client Requirement

The Royal Navy required two marquees, one to be placed on the flight deck and the other along side on the quayside for a reception.

Marquee Style

9m x 15m Reception Marquee erected on the Flight Deck

15m x 20m Display Marquee erected on Leith Quayside




The marquees were only frame and covers but the location required special consideration to the actual pinning down. For obvious reasons we were unable to pin or use concrete ballast on board. Access was also an issue due to the venue being an active naval vessel and port.


Our modern Clearspan marquees are very adaptable and can be installed in most locations, because of the special requirements requested by the Royal Navy we used water ballasting on board and concrete on the quayside. The location was a busy harbour but with careful liaison with the Royal Navy this was a very successful event.
