Neptunus supplies shade for RHS shows

Temporary structures specialist Neptunus has supplied the RHS with a 24 m x 45 m double decker structure for catering at the Hampton Court Flower Show.

Two 10m wide Neptunus Alu Halls with glazed side panels were placed between the Long Water and a row of trees, one housing a Seafood & Champagne Restaurant and the other, The Palace Tea Rooms. Additional Alu Halls were erected for the show adjudicators and the press.

Neptunus also connected several of its Pluto marquees either side of the Long Water to provide  shade.

This year the exteriors of the structures were clad with different colours to correspond with special zones, each with their own distinctive theme. It took Neptunus technicians 13 days to deliver the  project, which was complete with interior fit-out, carpets, toilets and air-conditioning.

Neptunus UK managing director April Trasler said: "We continue to strengthen our successful relationship with the RHS following our work at Chelsea in May and this, our fourth Hampton Court Flower Show. All the team enjoyed working on the build and it was great to have the weather on our side for a change."

RHS head of shows operations, Caroline Hills said: ""Neptunus have once again delivered excellent service and the quality of the product continues to reflect the standards the RHS are looking to achieve at all our events. I very much look forward to working with Neptunus again in the foreseeable future."
