Our biggest project yet – This is one for the record books!
Last summer our team was given the chance to construct the huge marquee at the The Irish Furniture & Home-wares Show in Swords. The massive arena marquee was 140 meters long and 25 meters wide, this ones a monster by any standards!
Bild Structures provided a full production crew of 8 including teleporter operators, foremen, site managers and laborers. The project took place over 2 weeks at the national show center in Swords.
The arena structure was composed of 28 modular sections. Each one 25 meters wide, 5 meters in length and 7 meters high at the apex.
The build consisted of 3500m² of flooring and PVC roofing, over 60 tons of ballast weight, countless nuts and bolts and a gallons of coffee!
We also partnered with structural engineers to sign off on the project. Thanks goes to Punch Consulting for their engineering expertise.
Big thank you to the IFHS for trusting us with this one. Looking forward to doing it all again this summer!
