Field and Lawn: Two Decades of Excellence at the Royal Highland Show

Trusted event Marquee Partner for the Royal Highland Show

As a leading supplier of event marquees across Scotland, Field and Lawn has played an integral role in supplying event infrastructure to the Royal Highland Show for more than two decades. The event attracts a staggering 217,000 visitors, solidifying its status as the largest agricultural show in the region.

What was provided?

Field and Lawn supplied a total of 45,000 square meters of marquee space across the site which was made up of over 40 large clearspan event marquees for the show and its exhibitors. As well as providing the structures our onsite teams also took responsibility for marquee delivery, installation, and dismantling across the extensive show site. Our in-house teams were on hand to carry out maintenance and responsive repairs throughout the month-long build program.

Meticulous Planning and Coordination

Working closely with show organisers, the Field & Lawn team developed and refined marquee placements, configurations, and specifications. This comprehensive approach included the provision and refinement of build programs, site plans, risk assessments, method statements, weather contingency plans, and emergency procedures. Regular weekly updates and client meetings ensured a seamless delivery of the contract.

On The Ground Execution

Appointing a dedicated Senior Project Manager and Project Manager was essential to oversee the installation process on the ground. Prior to installation, all marquees underwent rigorous testing and checks, were thoroughly cleaned, and efficiently loaded using Field and Lawn’s own HGV fleet. A team of over 20 in-house marquee riggers worked tirelessly for four weeks, resulting in zero health and safety incidents.

Additional school space in Basingstoke

A bespoke marquee solution for additional school space

Our team of project managers have worked with a local primary school in Basingstoke in order to provide additional temporary space. The school required the space due to a programme of construction work in response to the discovery of RAAC within the main school building. Consequently, the space needed to be high quality, heated and flexible for a range of school activities.

what is raac?

RAAC is a lightweight form of concrete commonly used in construction between the 1950s and mid-1990s. It is generally found as precast panels in roofs, commonly found in flat roofs, and occasionally in floors and walls. Furthermore, RAAC has a limited lifespan and needs to be inspected regularly.

Our Solution

Field and Lawn have provided a 20m x 30m clearspan marquee on long-term hire. Moreover, the specification includes robust ABS Solid sides, a level cassette floor, with a durable Texway carpet. Large window walls, security doors and eight, energy-efficient bay lights were installed in order to create a light and bright learning environment. The marquee was installed on grass, adjacent to the school playground.

Safe, warm and comfortable: Flow Power Solutions.

Because the marquee will be in use over the cooler winter months, it was essential that the marquee provided a warm and safe environment for primary school-aged children. As a result, HVAC was provided by Flow Power Solutions. The power solution included six fan coil units, a 30kva Generator with a 30kva standby generator, distribution, fuel tanks and power supply.

The results

Overall, the marquee was designed and installed within just weeks from initial contact. This included the mechanical and electrical design for heating. We also created robust risk and method statements for installation. Close collaboration with the school and their building contractor meant that installing the structure was a smooth process.

Make Your Scottish Wedding Personal with Luxury Wedding Marquees For 2024

The history and tradition of leap year wedding proposals

Did you know 2024 is a leap year? When it comes to weddings and proposals, a leap year carries a large amount of significance and tradition. On 29th February women get down on one knee and propose to their other half.

The tradition of leap year proposals is said to have several roots. One being that Queen Margaret of Scotland passed a law in 1288 declaring that women could propose once per year on the 29th of February. In the event that the proposal was refused, he had to pay a fine! This involved paying for a new gown, and gloves or alternatively, giving her a kiss. While there was no record of this law ever actually being passed it is a great way to create a unique and memorable proposal date. 

No matter who popped the question, where or how, our marquee hire team in Edinburgh have helped hundreds of happy couples celebrate in style under the elegance of a wedding marquee.
