HTS tentiQ was approached by our client “Gorges Tent & Event” to develop a unique clear-span structure system on behalf of their client AUDI. The Audi design brief was to design a marketing and hospitality structure for use preliminary at the DTM Touring Car race meetings across Europe for AUDI. The aluminium-framed structure needed to reflect the clients strong brand image of high quality and innovation.
HTS tentiQ converted the clients ground breaking concepts into reality. The main hospitality “AUDI LOUNGE” structure measured 20.00m x 30.00m with an 8.00m eave height. A major factor for consideration during the initial design stage was that the complete aluminium-framed building could take no longer than 3 days to install and 2 days for removal. This demand played an important part when designing the structure as the client requested numerous special “one-off” features that needed to be practicable when deployed in the field.
The building incorporated new glass walling panels using 10mm safety glass, heavy duty integrated flooring to both upper and lower levels, internal staircases, an open balcony / viewing area with an unsupported cantilever 5.00m x 30.00m overhead canopy roof. The roof system featured our insulated thermo twin skin inflatable roof system, which increases thermal efficiency and reduces wind-generated noise thanks to the pressurized roof fabric.
Overall, this fully demountable temporary structure system pushed the boundaries in traditional aluminium framed fabric structure design.
HTS tentiQ exceeded the client’s demands by designing and manufacturing a complex re-locatable structure system which incorporated all the client’s corporate design feature demands whilst still remaining practicable in terms of ease of installation and removal working to tight time constraints.
