Welcome to the Best of the Best

Let us welcome you behind the scenes and inside last season’s biggest undertaking: a 25×30 meter (82×100′) Losberger Uniflex Structure Tent. (sigh.) Isn’t she beautiful? This project was a week-long, construction-grade install. We used a 10,000 lb lift to erect 7 arches, one-by-one, as a laser-leveled floor was built between each arch. The floor graded […]
