Tents and Events


Television Productions

Client Requirement

In the film and TV industry, location manager’s often have requirements for Make Up, Wardrobe and Dining areas for scenes they are filming with a large number of extras. These can often be in remote locations where they rely on Tents and Events to be a one-stop-shop for all their requirements

Marquee Hire Type

We would generally supply either 9m Clearspan Marquees building up in 3m increments or for larger requirements our 12m/15m Structures which build up in 5m increments to include any internal partitioning required.

Location

We have worked at a variety of locations throughout Scotland to include Glasgow, Stirling, Cumbernauld, Muiravonside and the Edinburgh area.

Features

Very often there can be challenges with access or the ground conditions can be a mix of grass and hard standing.  Winter filming has also brought challenges with consideration required to assess exposure to the elements and alter install/removal dates as required.  Due to the nature of filming schedules this is very often all at the very last minute.

Solution

The marquees are installed using a mix of pinning into the ground and concrete ballasts (depending on the ground conditions).  Wooden Floors,  Formal doors, Heating and LED Flood lighting are standard to ensure that the crew are protected from the elements in a degree of comfort.

Internal splits are used to divide up the Make Up and Wardrobe areas with further internal partitions to form any necessary female/male areas.  Dining Areas are generally provided in a separate marquee so that artists have somewhere to sit and eat the food provided by crew catering companies.

There is usually a requirement for a substantial number of trestle tables and event chairs for all the areas. We can provide these from our own stock so that they are delivered/removed with the marquees rather than scheduling multiple suppliers.

Heating is crucial both for the comfort of the artists but also to ensure that costumes are able to be dried after a wet filming day.  We have a wide range of heaters in stock (in a variety of sizes) and therefore multiple units can be provided within the different areas.  We use thermostatically controlled indirect heating with bulk tanks to ensure a continual supply of fuel and provide back up heating units free of charge if the weather is looking to be particularly cold.

A substantial amount of power distribution is generally required to power up make up mirrors, irons for the wardrobe department, any catering requirements with additional sockets for powering laptops or charging mobile phones.  We can undertake all the power distribution from within our stock items and we arrange for the correct size of generators (always including a back up unit and generally bulk fuel tanks) to be delivered, positioned on site and removed again after filming.

We can therefore offer a One-Stop-Shop whereby the marquees arrive, finished internally to the required standard with all power distribution and furniture included to create less work and liaison with multiple suppliers for the production team
