HERE YOU WILL FIND THE MOST COMMON THINGS WE ARE ASKED AT BASECAMP
Why do we require drawings and calculations because my stand exceeds 4m in height?
All major Venues in Europe and the USA require drawings and calculations for any structure exceeding 4m in height. The height limit for stands being deemed Complex is 4m. Once the structure exceeds 4m in height it is subject to an internal draught pressure or a wind blowing through the venue. We then have to prove that your structure can withstand being subjected to this wind. This can result in further work having to be introduced over and above structures that do not exceed 4m.
What cost, will drawings and calculations be for my stand?
The cost of drawings and calculations for a structure that exceeds 4m in height obviously varies with the complexity and size of the structure. But the fees involved usually range from £180.00 – £375.00. Firm quotations can be provided from a basic drawing or visual
