Portable Tent Rack System

Description

The Country Club of Virginia has a portico located off of our Main Ballroom that we often enclose with a very large tent to create more space for special events during the winter months.

The portico tent is difficult to maneuver, and leads to a clumsy and time-consuming process for both storage (when it is not in use) and transportation of the tent to the portico area to be installed. We created a portable tent rack system that allows the portico tent to be stored in a manner that is safe for both the tent and for employees and it is also used to transport the tent from storage to the installation location.

The rack system provides:
1. A container for transportation of the portico tent to and from the Clubhouse.
2. A place for the tent to be stored in the rafters of the Building Services building when not in use.

Implementation

The Building Services team designed and created the portico tent storage/transport rack system to provide a solution that allows our team to store and transport the portico tent in a manner that is safe, saves time and payroll, keeps the tent from being damaged, and makes owning a tent versus renting a tent a more feasible option.
