Event Architecture takes care in the design and engineering to ensure all the structures have been built to the best standards possible. This maximizes the commercial viability of any investment and ultimately the longevity of the products.
Equipment needs vary depending on the project. An installation may only require a small ladder, but others may need a reach forklift, scissor lift, or boom rig. A scissor lift or ladder will be necessary to attach air cells. The Portable Event Structure X will also require a crane in addition to two forklifts and one scissor lift. A leaf blower, shop vac, or air compressor is needed for each installation to inflate the air cells.
Event Architecture has labor partners all across North America to install and dismantle the units for you. We can also train your crew during the first build on how to install and dismantle the structures, then your crew can take it from there. We will always send an Event Architecture supervisor to oversee Portable Event Structure installations.
Our structures are light enough to erect on a roof terrace with enough mass and rigidity to not slide. The weight of each unique event structure e will vary. All units were designed to be moved by hand or with forklifts.
We can always work with uneven terrain by utilizing shims or decking. Our Portable Event Structures usually require a site survey prior to activation so we can make sure to use the correct leveling method. We recommend using a deck underneath all outdoor events that utilize the Portable Event Structure X. Our Express Portables have a self-leveling system which allows leveling to be adjusted on the spot.
Ballast and Ground stakes
All units have the ability to use ground stakes or add ballasts. There are tie points on the sides and under the structures. Ballasts are normally added as steel plates or concrete blocks due to their density. The engineering documents cover all the parameters of these operations.

The Express Pods have been designed as a fast, flat-packed hinge up system. All of the elements are assembled prior to shipping, so the onsite build of each pod is completed in under 30 minutes. Our custom Pod trailer includes an electric boat wench that easily loads and unloads one or two Pods with minimal use of a forklift. For multi-Pod events, up to 32 units can be shipped on a flatbed semi-truck and will require a forklift to unload.
