Challenges

We had to coordinate the tensile structure from Auckland, NZ with the main structure being made in Kansas City. The main onsite challenge was that this was built in the summer where it was 100+ degrees every day. Also, waiting for the structure while it sat in customs for a few days.

Results

  • A new Tommy Bahama bar giving well-needed shade in the center of the campus.
  • A nice place to rest, have a drink, eat some food, and watch the matches on the large tv under the structure.
  • A wonderful place to chill outside on those windy warm Palm Desert nights.
