When people picture a classic marquee it’s normally one decked out for the hospitality industry. But did you know that marquees can be invaluable as part of a construction project? Our marquees offer year-round protection from the weather that can save businesses both time and money.

In the construction industry you’ll be well aware of the havoc the changeable UK weather can cause through the colder months of the year. For example, flooding from rain can cause delays and lost profits. Meanwhile, cold weather has an impact on staff productivity and moral.

How a marquee can help…

The rainy autumn and winter months will have much less impact if you protect your site with a marquee. Keep the rain off key areas with a full marquee or simply a roof with open sides. We can also fit gutters to the edges, so that water is channeled away from the site.

It’s also no problem if the wind picks up, as our marquees will stay strong and secure whatever the weather. We can use concrete blocks or water barrels to weigh our structures down, and these methods are also a great solution if you would rather not use pegs on site.

Keep staff happy and productive

Looking after your staff is key to a successful and profitable build, and a marquee gives them somewhere warm and pleasant to shelter during their breaks. We can fit hot air heating systems (or gas heaters if you have an open-ended marquee) to ensure the space stays comfortable and dry. We can also create changing/drying rooms for damp clothes and storing personal items out of the rain. During the darker winter months these are exactly the kinds of initiatives that keep staff moral high and ensure they bring their best work to your project.

Marquees for every type of site

At Trafalgar Structures we’ve supplied marquee solutions for multiple leading construction companies. The projects we’ve worked on have been as varied as:

  • Covers for swimming pool projects
  • Protection for basement works
  • Protecting stonemasons working on bespoke flooring

Whatever the size of your project there’s something to suit. A marquee also offers the perfect solution if you’re building a house or adding an extension. It can be used to provide cover for both the works and the back garden. This means construction work can continue whatever the weather and there’s also plenty of additional storage space outside. This benefits both the homeowner and the construction company.

Bespoke solutions

One of the great things about a marquee is the flexibility. They can be shaped to fit every type of project and to suit your specific needs. We have a proven track record of working on a variety of bespoke projects, including Laing O’Rourke’s prestigious No 1 Hyde Park development in Knightsbridge, where we provided shelter for stonemasons to refit flooring without disrupting residents.

Plus, whether your timescale is months or just a few days, we have the answer.

An important part of our role is also to maintain our temporary structures and ensure they continue to meet our high structural standards for the duration of their hire.
