Please describe the project specifications

The client requested a durable and attractive tent to allow extended outdoor seating for dining in all seasons, maximizing the use of an existing, beach-front concrete patio.

Rainier Tent's solution was a full strength custom hip end tent, measuring 24' wide x 34' long x 10' tall. A blue vinyl was used along with clear acrylic for the top, with matching keder-slider side walls, to maintain the environment and ocean view. Custom gutters and mounting hardware on two sides of the tent are used to capture and divert rainfall, and to provide dry egress to and from interior dining spaces.

What is unique or complex about the project?

The most notable uniqueness of this project is it's beach-front location. That along with the custom size and configuration to fix exactly on the outdoor patio space was a unique engineering effort. Also, the egress requirements and custom gutter solution were particular to this project.
