Event Flooring Solutions were commissioned by the Royal Horticultural Society to provide temporary event flooring for this year’s event at the prestigious Chatsworth House. At the heart of the site sat the interpretation of Joseph Paxton’s Great Conservatory, flanked either side by the Cavendish and the Devonshire Floral Marquees, which were home to nurseries, specialist societies and floral design. EFS provided the flooring for each of these marquees with their Temp-A-Path flooring system.
The flooring was installed this year for the first time, to improve accessibility within the two marquees. The installation took place over 2 days with 7 men working 8 ½ eight hours per day, with the uplift taking the crew the same amount of time. All together, 5700sqm of light grey Temp-A-Path was installed; 3300sqm in the larger Devonshire marquee and 2400sqm in the Cavendish. The Temp-A-Path was laid on top of a Geo-membrane to improve protection to the ground below.
Adam Walker, Operations Assistant for the Chatsworth Flower Show said: ‘Just thought I’d pass on this snippet from our feedback summary from the first day: Brilliant flooring of large marquees with all stalls – very easy to walk on and if it does rain it will be great.’
Jeremy Simpson, EFS’s Business Development Manager said: ‘We were delighted to work with the Royal Horticultural Society for the first time and the contract was a major coup for us. We knew that Temp-A-Path would tick all the boxes, it does what it says on the tin!’
The RHS Chatsworth Flower Show offered a thrilling day out that blended tradition with exciting and innovative design. The 5-day show took place from 6 to 10 June with thousands of people flocking to the show.
