8m x 12m Marquee
"You Can’t Build a Marquee There!...Yes we can"
Last summer South Perth Yacht Club approached Reece's Event Hire about options for creating a new function space. Their criteria was it had to be close to the existing building and bar but without losing the prime river views.
After looking at a number of possible options we decided the existing lawn spaces was not large enough. We proposed to extend their usable area by building a scaffold deck for a marquee out over the rocks and beach area towards the river. This gave us enough space to build an 8m x 12m marquee. We decided to incorporate the trees into the marquee design, by making a custom made roof.
We also built a custom pine deck for the marquee cutting it around trees and creating a verandah. Aluminum composite white hard walls with a set of glass doors down one end combined with clear walls on the river side that could be opened and closed depending on the weather gave them versatility of use.
With a white silk roof to finish it off the new function space was the perfect addition to the venue for the summer sailing season. The photos speak for themselves and South Perth Yacht Club was blown away with the quality of the finish which far exceeded their expectations.
The marquee will be installed again this summer to take advantage of the magnificent river location.
