Be careful what you ask for! Our client wanted us to create an environment for a three-month-long display of Christmas inspired lanterns crafted on site by Chinese artisans. Our job was to deliver a structure that was 80’ x 180’. They needed 26 ft of trim from the floor to the bottom cord of the truss structure, a level floor throughout, hundreds of power drops with no exposed cords, heating throughout the structure, and no condensation inside the structure. Not to mention: A required wind rating of 125 miles per hour while hanging 40,000 lbs off an all black trussing grid that would be supported by the structure.
This is one where a picture is worth a thousand words!
Bottom line, we delivered everything our client wanted. We now own a portable airline hanger along with15,000 square feet of professional decking. The decking and an inside liner (black) were key to the condensation challenge. We created a 2ft crawl space with the decking where we ran duct for the heating and electricity to power each lantern display.
