Explore our latest ramadan lighting scheme

Following the success of the first ever, large scale commercial Ramadan lighting display in the UK in 2023, Field and Lawn have delivered a brand new scheme for Ramadan 2024.

About the 2024 Ramadan lights IN London

The new display, located in Coventry Street is titled “Sundail” and is inspired by the transition from dawn to dusk during Ramadan. It represents the fasting experience with radiant suns and moons, forming a visual timepiece. The design features beautiful geometric patterns and hanging stars, paying homage to Islamic art. Over 30000 sustainable lights will illuminate the skies between Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square.

Ramadan ground features and selfie spots

Another new addition to this years display is an enchanting ground mounted illuminated Ramadan decoration on Edgeware Road.  Marble Arch London BID, in partnership with the The Portman Estate, have brought the first Ramadan light display to Edgware Road, installing an illuminated crescent moon ground mounted selfie spot at Nutford Place which will be in place until Wednesday 10 April.

The bespoke 2.9m tall light installation is a majestic walk-through experience, adorned with warm white LED lights and elegant gold insets. Emblazoned with the heartfelt message “Ramadan Mubarak,” symbolising blessings and goodwill. The display runs throughout Ramadan and will be illuminated each day between 6am-11pm. The feature is something that can be easily replicated in cities across the UK to spread the joy of Ramadan.  It has created a wonderful selfie spot for people to come together and celebrate Ramadan.

“It is really powerful, many non-Muslims are becoming increasingly curious about Ramadan and what it involves. It's spreading awareness in such a nice way through art and light installation. It was the idea that came from me but I encourage Muslims and people from other faiths to continue on and do it.”

What are the benefits of hiring a marquee long-term?

Long term marquee hire from the experts

While marquees are often associated with a wide range of events such as weddings, parties, a corporate event or festival. They have a much wider application when hired for long term use.  

Our specification is adapted to you long term needs, with a range of bespoke options for extended marquee hire.

To explore the benefits of hiring a marquee long term, and look your options,  Project Manager, Helen Middleton shares here insight into extended hire commercial marquees and temporary structures. 

Helen is an experienced project manager and has helped hundreds of business hire marquees for long term requirements.  

How long is long term?

We provide long term marquee hire for a range of businesses, our rental periods range from as little as one week, through to several months.  Our rental agreements are flexible and can always be extended should you need you keep the extra space.  If you have a seasonal storage requirement, we can offer rental agreements to work around your needs.

It’s very common for businesses to extend either the hire term or physical space once the structure has been on site and has started to be used. The benefits are seen quickly!

Popular uses for long term marquees

The adaptability of marquee structures makes them perfect for a wide variety of long term uses. With their versatile design marquees present an ideal solution to longer-term needs. Businesses approach us if their existing structure is undergoing repairs, or when additional space is needed very quickly. In my experience, here are just a few examples of how we have helped businesses and the public sector with long term marquee hire:

Why do businesses choose a long term hire?

1. Cost-effective

Long-term marquee hire can be a cost-effective solution.  Hiring a venue for an extended period often incurs substantial costs, including venue fees, security deposits, and maintenance charges. In contrast, marquees provide a more affordable alternative with reduced overhead costs.

3. Customisation Options

Our marquees can be easily customised to reflect your brand with bespoke gables that feature your logo and brand colours. We have a wide range of customisation options for the interior and exterior of your marquee including various flooring such as vinyl, carpet and plywood options, interior tent linings and other fit-out options.

5. Environmentally friendly

Field and Lawn proudly operate as a carbon neutral company, meaning your marque hire will be carbon free! Furthermore, choosing these marquees for extended periods helps minimise the overall carbon footprint linked to traditional building materials and methods, promoting an eco-friendly alternative for events or disposable products.

2. Flexible

As marquees can be put up and taken down easily, exactly where you need the additional space, they provide a significant amount of flexibility. Our marquees are modular, which means they are constructed in 5m bays.  Marquees can be extended or shortened so over time the space can flex to suit your needs.  We can install a marquee on any ground surface too!  

4. Low maintenance

Our marquees are made from high-quality durable materials that are all quality checked before they arrive on site. Our marquee structures are designed to withstand various weather conditions and are resistant to tearing, UV damage, and water, reducing the likelihood of structural issues. Due to the modular structure of marquees, should any parts of your marquee become damaged or worn components are easily interchangeable without dismantling the entire structure.

How to spec a marquee for long term hire.

long term retail marquee

One of the big questions I get asked is what options are provided in the marquee.  It does depend on how and what it will be used for but our specification is one of the best in the industry.  We adapt the structure based on your needs and can provide everything required for a long term hire.  

Field and Lawn marquees can be hired with soft or solid walls, flooring, lighting, heating, cooling, ventilation and windows to create a high quality temporary space. An enhanced specification can be offered for corporate marquee hire for example, luxury linings and glazed bays and doors are often used to create a high end feel that is comparable to a semi-permanent structure. 

Helen's Expert Insight on long term marquee hire

Expert tip on heating and cooling: If your marquee hire will stretch over several seasons, we can offer a flexible hire option for ancillary items to save you money.  For example, you can hire a heater for just the winter months directly from us.  You won’t need to pay for it over the full term of the marquee hire. 

How long does a marquee take to install?

For a 12 x 9m structure, we can complete the marquee installation within a day, for a smaller footprint, it can be installed in a matter of hours. This means you won’t face disruption or delay and your space will be operational within 24 hours.

How fast can I hire a structure?

Field and Lawn have a large branch network and access to over 800,000 sq. ft. of marquee space.  This means we can provide a marquee in a matter of days.  Sometimes, even faster if you have an urgent need. 

We can provide a quick quote and we use experienced in-house installation teams which speeds the process up and provides a quality service.

What about long term marquee maintenance?

If you are hinging a marquee over an extended period, we will maintain the structure.  The initial calculations and design will enable us to provide a safe structure based on your local environment. Periodic checks will be required. We can also check that any means of securing the structure down are still safely in place, whether this is stakes or weighting. Ad hoc checks are also sometimes required following adverse weather conditions.

Whether used for hosting events, creating temporary venues, or providing shelter in various settings, our marquee structures offer a blend of functionality, aesthetics, and flexibility.

What are temporary storage buildings?

If you are looking for a quick and easy solution to increase storage space, look no further than a temporary building! Temporary only by name; they are de-mountable, modular structures that allow you to easily add extra space in pretty much any environment or location. 

Temporary buildings are quick to install and are being used by a growing range of sectors, including; manufacturing, retail, logistics, industrial, education, commercial, agriculture, and sporting venues for additional on-site storage capacity. They are semi-permanent, ultra-durable structures with a long lifespan of in excess of 20 years.

A temporary warehouse building from Field and Lawn can be installed on almost any ground surface, without the need for foundations. Furthermore, they are tough, durable and designed for all year round use, providing the perfect solution for your temporary warehousing requirements.  Therefore, a temporary building provides a compelling alternative to costly and time consuming traditional buildings.  They also offer many advantages to renting storage space off site

Types of temporary warehouse buildings

There are many types of temporary warehouse buildings, the three most popular solutions include:

1. Insulated buildings: 

If you have a sensitive storage requirement or will have members of your team working from the warehouse, an insulated building will provide high levels of comfort.

2. Industrial buildings: 

Often, these warehouse buildings are constructed using steel sided panels, these storage sheds are robust and cost effective.  An industrial temporary building can be customised with lighting, bespoke roller shutters doors, security systems and more.  They make for great workshops and industrial storage solutions.

What are the main differences between a temporary warehouse structure and a fabric structure?

A storage marquee does share some similarities with a temporary building as they are easily installed, removed and relocatable.  That’s where the similarities end. 

A temporary building is hardwearing, long lasting, highly durable structure. Temporary buildings can be in place for up to 50 years. The structure is assessed by engineers to ensure wind and weather loading to provide a long-term solution. The key differences include:

Material: Marquees are typically made of fabric or other flexible materials, while temporary buildings generally have insulated steel clad sides with additional insulation in the roof. A range of doors, glazing and heating and cooling options can be installed in a temporary building.

Size and shape: Temporary buildings can be larger and more customisable in terms of size and shape, with multiple access and security options, including wide, secure roller doors. Due to their modular construction, additional space can be seamlessly integrated into a temporary building.

Functionality: Temporary buildings can be used for a variety of long-term purposes. This includes warehousing, secure and ambient storage, office space, classrooms, event spaces, and click and collect facilities, due to their enhanced durability and security.

Why choose a temporary building?

A temporary building will give you much more than a typical storage container could ever provide.  Our temporary storage buildings can be:

> Fully insulated delivering U-Values as low as: 0.18 W/m²K

> Temperature controlled or refrigerated

> Custom designed with glazing, roller shutter doors, loading canopies, link corridors and more

> Fully fitted and partitioned for offices , meeting rooms and everything in between 

A temporary building can be completely specified to your exact requirements, including; data connections, CCTV, internal/external lighting, alarms, access systems, flooring, glazing and racking.

Despite the “temporary” name, these structures are robust, safe and secure.  They can be fully or partially insulated and offer exceptional levels of flexibility due to their modular construction. The good news is that just like a traditional building, there are a wide range of door systems and options to choose from. When it comes to installing temporary buildings, we can provide practically any access door for your exact requirements. 

Access doors for temporary buildings

Temporary warehouse buildings with large access doors

Some of the most common uses for industrial temporary buildings require vehicle access, such as forklift trucks for temporary warehouses or larger plant and machinery for industrial buildings. The most popular access doors for temporary buildings are roller shutter doors. These can be specified as manual or electrically operated roller doors in a range of standard and bespoke sizes.  

Access doors meet all appropriate fire resistance and thermal insulation regulations. Rapid access doors with a shorter response time for applications such as blue light buildings can also be supplied.  Rapid access doors are also great solutions for temporary warehouse buildings where speed and efficiency are key to operational performance.

Pedestrian doors

We supply and fit pedestrian doors with our temporary buildings. These doors can be insulated or non-insulated depending on the use of the building.

Different door systems can be installed such as glazed or double doors, for customer facing buildings.

The options include industrial steel doors, UPVC doors, which can be installed in insulated buildings and Glazed doors.  Glazed doors work well for temporary accommodation, welfare facilities and gyms. 

How many doors will I need in my building for fire regs?

The number of doors required for fire regulations in a temporary building can vary depending on the specific regulations and the purpose of the building. Commercial and public buildings are legally required to have more than one fire exit and our team of experts will be able to provide specific guidance on fire safety to help you comply with regulations for your temporary building. Further guidance on installing temporary buildings, specifically emergency evacuation can be found on the government website.

Access for Warehouse buildings

Access control for warehouse buildings is critical for stock security.  A bespoke access control system can be installed in any of our warehouse buildings to prevent unauthorised access.  Moving stock in and around a temporary warehouse building is easy as access doors are large enough to allow access for forklift trucks and other heavy lifting equipment. A 3m x 4m access door will safely accommodate a loaded forklift truck.

Vehicle workshops, maintenance buildings and valeting bays

If you are looking for a maintenance building, temporary workshop or valeting bay, there are a few different access options. We can achieve door heights of up to 5m. Meaning there is sufficient clearance for light vehicles and HGVs to enter the workshop. Valeting bays can be provided as open-ended structures and completed with vehicle and pedestrian doors. A standard, electric 3m x 2.5m door will give enough space for a large family car or SUV. For motorhomes and caravans, larger doors can be created.

Canopies and loading bays

These structures offer unrivalled versatility when it comes to loading and unloading goods and materials.  Generally, our industrial canopies and loading bays are open ended to allow for vehicle access. They can also be linked to existing buildings, providing weatherproof area for stock processing or dispatch.  

Keeping your valuable products and staff fully protected from the weather, all year round.  If you link a canopy to an existing structure, it will still be possible to maintain access control and security. We can integrate doors and bespoke openings on all our industrial canopy structures, providing complete flexibility.

building Security and remote monitoring

Finally, there are a number of security solutions that can be integrated into temporary buildings.  From standard key fob entry system to biometric security solutions.  Temporary buildings can be completely specified to maintain site security and access control.  CCTV systems can be added together with security and emergency lighting. Doors can be controlled with smart locks and remote access is possible with the most advanced door entry systems.  

Temporary buildings can also be fully partitioned to allow access to specific areas of the building to keep sensitive and secure areas safe.  Advanced fire detection systems can be integrated into our structures for enhanced safety and security.

We are experts in installing temporary buildings, they can match that of a permanent building when it comes to access controls, safety, fire protection and security.  Our team of experts will be able to help you spec the perfect system for your new temporary building, no matter the use case or location of your building.  Contact us today to get the space you need.

Insulated temporary buildings provide high quality temperature regulation, crucial for industries dealing with sensitive goods or materials, even chilled or frozen goods.  Due to high levels of insulation they are comfortable for staff and energy efficient.  Insulation can be within the cladding, typically between 60mm – 120mm and within the roof.  Roof insulation is typically achieved by inflating the roof to provide the insulation pocket.  Insulated temporary buildings maintain a controlled environment, protecting your stock from adverse weather conditions.
