Field & Lawn have been working closely with local authorities and public sector organisations for over 35 years. With a wealth of expierience our team were tasked with quickly increasing polling capacity and counting space by installing an election marquee for one of our local authority clients.


Central Bedfordshire Council required a counting centre for the Police and Crime Commissioner Elections at their head office. Given the significance of the electoral process, they required an accessible, efficient and secure marquee for political parties and count staff.  In addition, a full temporary power, heating and cooling system was required. 


Our Project Manager developed a comprehensive solution, which included a high specification solid sided marquee as well as a wide range of temporary event infrastructure.  To support the client, we provided a turnkey solution, managing every aspect from the marquee to ensuring fuel supply for the temporary power generators.

The main clearspan structure measured 15m x 60m and was equipped with flooring, specialist event carpet and solid sides. This marquee offered ample space for security checks , public viewing areas  and counting stations, ensuring a smooth counting process.

The marquee installation was completed in just three days, minimising disruption at the Council’s office. Additionally, safety measures such as fire exits and emergency lighting were installed.
