Please describe the project specifications

Tent for Itinerant musical shows of 60 mts. of diameter supported by 4 structural masts, 10 electric winches, 12 tirfors, 1 metal central cupola and all accessories for assembly.

And 1 tent for entrance of 16x32 meters. of 2 masts.

What was the purpose of this project? What did the client request?

We were hired to design and fabricate an itinerant auditory-type tent that would present the shows of famous latin groups and artists in different Cities of U.S.A.

What is unique or complex about the project?

This project, is the first concept in its style, that will be taking, in tour by the U.S.A., a "Palenque", with all the technical and structural characteristics, so that both artists and spectators, have the spaces, facilities and adequate technology, to present and enjoy each show, as it is traditionally done, in the most important fairs, that take place in MEXICO.

We designed a tensil system with 12 points of traction on the outside of the tent to eliminate 12 quarter poles on the inside and to have best view for the public, and free spaces.

What were the results of the project?

We succesfully got the expectations of the client and of his project, who is thinking in a second similar project because of the success he has had with several sponsors. He has already requested a second project, similar to the one developed last year.

We got a capacity of 4,000 people approx. in this Itinerant tent.
