Winter marquees take longer to build

Erecting winter marquees isn’t the most glamorous of jobs but  it can still be enjoyable. The key is to allow more time for each one (compared to peak summer times).

Allowing more time for each marquee means:

  • The work days can be shorter, if you’re not really busy then there’s no need to work very late
  • Sites will naturally take more effort during the winter (clearing snow, weathering to buildings etc)
  • Work can be done in shifts, the general winter practice was to put up the marquee then have a break as soon as the heater could be made operational. Suddenly with working heaters the marquee becomes a much more pleasant environment to work in for the flooring and linings etc (and you’re ‘just testing’ to make sure the heating is satisfactory for the customer)
  • Maintenance will take a bit longer as everything’s likely to get wetter and muddier during the winter.

I’m aware I’m saying this from a warm comfortable indoor office but providing you are not in a hurry and you’ve got suitable clothing then winter marquees can be just as enjoyable as summer ones.
