Stunning Outdoor Wedding with Tent, Dance floor, A/C, in Oxford by Town or Country Event Design

We set up our 60′ x 66′ clearspan Losberger-made tent for this stunning outdoor wedding reception in Oxford, Iowa. The tent had sidewalls, both French windows to let light in and Solid white sidewalls some with ducts for the Air Conditioning unit along with glass doors and a 12 Ton A/C unit to cool it all down. We provided Cafe Lights for around the dance floor. The stage was for the band and the dance floor was placed by the tree. Our client was Town or Country Event Design.

Air Conditioning for a Greenhouse Wedding in Cedar Rapids, IA

What do they say about people who live in glass houses? People who live in glass houses… get air conditioning for their wedding when it takes place on one of the hottest days so far this year. Temperatures are slated to get into the mid 90s. Can you imagine how hot this wedding could have been inside of this Cedar Rapids greenhouse?

We used a 30 Ton A/C unit for this event.

Event Air Conditioning with Speedy Setup & Installation!

Rockwell Collins logoBig Ten Rentals is used to jobs with quick turnaround times and this event is no different. The call came in late Tuesday asking for the installation of enough air conditioning to keep an event in two airplane hangers (~10,000 sq. ft. each) cool on what turned out to be a day in the 90s. The Problem: No accessible doors or windows for supply and return ducts and the main hanger door needed to continue to function. The Solution: Create a structure out of scaffolding to hold the A/C duct system and still allow for the hanger door to operate. In total, there was 250 tons of air conditioning being pumped into the two hangers: Two 80-ton A/C units and Three 30-ton A/C units. We finished setting up the job around midnight the day before the event began.
