Long term marquee

Long term marquee hire. There are many reasons for hiring a marquee on a medium to long term basis. Many of our long term marquee hires are due to seasonal requirements, building work or refurbishments. Retail and hospitality outlets often use our marquees to take advantage of increased footfall during times of high demand, maximising sales opportunities and increasing annual profits.

Are you in need of some additional space? A temporary structure could be just what you’re looking for! There are lots of reasons for hiring a marquee on a long term basis, find out more about some of these, below:

Sports facilities: Gyms, changing rooms and all-weather spaces

Long term marquee hireAre there times when you struggle with available space and capacity at your facility? Adverse weather can mean that training grounds become unsuitable or even unusable at certain times of the year. Special events or projects can create a need for additional space. Additionally, refurbishments and building projects can render spaces temporarily unavailable.

We provide marquee solutions for just about any scenario that you can imagine. From high-tech gymnasiums to covered tennis courts, changing rooms, dining halls and swimming pool covers.

We’ve provided a variety of long term marquee solutions to sporting venues such as premiership football teams, sports clubs, schools and top tier horse racing facilities.

Retail marquees: Maximise sales at key trading times

Whether you run a retail outlet such as a shop, garden centre, supermarket, café or restaurant, trade ebbs and flows across the year. Key trading times such as Christmas, for example, see footfall and customer demand increase yet the physical capacity of your establishment remains the same.

Retail marqueeCould a temporary solution such as a marquee be the answer?

Our marquees are bespoke designed to fit into your unique space. We are able to attach to and extend from the front, rear or sides of existing premises. Alternatively, stand alone units are a good solution where extension isn’t viable. Our long term hire marquees can be provided with solid sides and lockable UPVC and glass doors and windows for extra security. Our marquees can be heated or cooled and we can provide electrics, lighting, flooring and even IT and networking solutions if needed.

Now that you’ve taken care of all of those extra customers, where are you going to put all of that extra stock? Why not take a look at our storage marquee solutions section later in this blog?

Extended dining space: Restaurants, cafes, bars and clubs

The hospitality industry is subject to a wide fluctuation in levels of demand at different times of year. Christmas, New Years Eve and Easter being prime examples. Additionally, the ability to offer customers a great outdoor space to enjoy during the spring and summer months can be vital for profitability; unfortunately, the UK weather doesn’t always want to play along!

Maximising opportunities at key times of the year can be crucial to commercial success. We’ve helped private clubs, restaurants, cafes, bars and other venues create additional, covered dining and entertaining spaces at times of year where increase in demand has been greater than available space.

Building and construction: All weather cover, demo suites and more

Demo and meeting spaces

Demo Suite Marquee Construction sites can be busy, dusty and dangerous places. Whilst many are comfortable in such environments, some management teams and delegates visiting for progress updates or to see examples of the solutions being created can struggle to visualise projects or even to operate comfortably in such unfamiliar surrounds.

We’ve created marquee-based demo suites and meeting spaces within client sites; allowing our clients to offer safe, clean and effective solutions for visitors to use. Discover how we helped one construction company deliver a high end, marquee based demo suite for their client.

All year around weather cover

UK weather systems are unpredictable all year around. In the past we have found ourselves building marquees in torrential rainstorms – even during summer months! If you have a project that is dependant upon stable conditions contact us to discuss the numerous solutions that we can offer.

Storage of equipment

Do you need a place to store building equipment, materials or furniture during a renovation, extension or building project? We offer secure lockable marquees on a long term marquee hire basis for this exact purpose. Find out more, we discuss storage marquees in greater depth later in this blog.

Temporary venues and pop-up spaces

Do you offer a beautiful wedding or party venue but occasionally lose business because client’s guest numbers outstrip capacity within your premises? Or perhaps you hire out a space that doesn’t offer a permanent structure on site?

The costs of hiring a marquee on top of venue hire fees could prove too expensive for some potential clients. A marquee hired on a long- or medium-term basis only needs to be built and de-rigged once, yet it can be used for multiple events.

By adding a long-term hire marquee to your offering you can mitigate many of the costs associated with building and taking down a marquee for your client. This means that you’ll be able to pass on just a small percentage of the long term marquee hire cost to each client, making marquee based weddings and parties at your venue a very viable option.

Storage marquees
