Marquee Weddings – the perfect alternative to any wedding venue during COVID lockdown It’s been a year of hard lockdown. A year of very little fun and celebration. But as the seasons change and our lockdown restrictions have eased somewhat, there are still a few weeks of beautiful, balmy weather to take advantage of. Much to our relief, we have found that there are lots of last-minute weddings being booked. The trend for weddings now is to keep them small and intimate. To keep the numbers down...

Custom Build Structures for Events – Design Indaba Another great example of a custom build structure was used at the Design Indaba last year.

This structure was used for the Emerging Creatives exhibition space, and the client wanted it to look industrial, stand out and look inviting. We built 4 identical units. Two units on each pod, on either side of the entrance to the Design Indaba. Each pod was built...

Constantia Gift Fair - The 1st proper public event in Cape Town since the lockdown The Constantia Gift Fair has always been the darling of the event calendar leading up to Christmas. We have been involved with The Gift Fair for 9 out of their 10 years, and it’s been one of the events that have grown in size and attendance year on year.

COVID-19 exam venues, temporary exam venues, social distancing exam venues
Final matric exams and the pandemic The sheer versatility of our structures have been evident this year. As we started the year with our usual events, we were blissfully unaware of what was about to unfold. In the height of the pandemic we were able to assist the Health Department with field hospitals, and structures that housed macerator units which decontaminated medical waste before it went to landfill. Now, as we are slowly regaining our semblance of normality, and our scholars are back...

Luckily for us, Mandy found her way back a month before the COVID pandemic hit the world, totally changing the landscape of events for the unforeseeable future. With our Director, Paul Clarke , Mandy secured numerous...
containerized units, COVID-19 structures, infrastructure
Containerized units With the COVID pandemic not showing signs of slowing down, we have had the get creative with the available resources in order to provide infrastructure for the Health Department. As the lockdown was announced in March, we were asked to rollout Marquee structures for the testing centres around the Western Cape. Some of these testing centres can be converted into field hospitals, if/when the need arises. Now we are in the process of rolling out new containerised units that can...
COVID-19 Field Hospital Cape Town, COVID-19 Triage and Testing Facilities
COVID-19 Field Hospitals around the Western Cape Pretty much, the whole Events Industry collapsed in a matter of days following the lockdown announcement. We did not know how things were going to pan out over the coming weeks and months during lockdown, and we were bracing for anything that was going to come our way. When we were able to build various COVID-19 Field Hospitals, Triage & Testing Facilities and other medical facilities for the Western Cape Government Health Department, we...
