Fabric Structures in the News: Mahaffey feature in In Tents Magazine

Recently, Mahafffey Fabric Structures was featured in In Tents Magazine. The feature article covered the 10th anniversary of the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock Arkansas. The 43,000 sq. ft. clearspan structure Mahffey provided was the largest tent ever used in Arkansas.

The ground surface for the structure was a new asphalt lot on a 300 ft. gradual downhill slope. The slope presented a unique challenge in designing the event structure. The two sidewalls were entirely enclosed with 17 bays of glass panels that overlooked the library, meaning the Mahaffey team needed to compensate for the slope in the foundation. The crew creatively set panels at an angle, adjusting for the 6 ft. difference in elevation from one end to the other.
