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. This year is no exception, even with the lockdown and the move to The Baxter Theatre , the Gift Fair was buzzing with eager shoppers and thankful vendors. The...
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...

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.

Team work, maruqee, Covid-19, Field Hospitals, temporary infrastructure
Teamwork in the time of COVID-19 Wow! This has been a huge adjustment. The lockdown, although very necessary has had a huge impact on every single industry. The events industry in Cape Town ground to a halt straight after the Cycle Tour. However, in all fairness, there were only a handful of public events that were cancelled due to the lockdown. The majority of the seasons’ events went on, by large, unaffected, which we are grateful for. Another thing we are grateful for is being able to...

marquee, tents, events, events in South Africa, Corona virus, Marquee events in Cape Town
March Madness with a mild dose of Corona panic Each year when we gear up for season, especially in the Western Cape, there are always peak months that dictate the eventing landscape. One of those months has always been March, and despite the Corona virus orbiting our planet, we have managed to keep it at bay long enough to stay on track with at least some of the events this month. We can’t say what will happen from April, as the worldwide trend is to cancel all public gatherings in the near...
