The Institute of Arts Barcelona (IAB) is an international college and university that offer higher education to performing art students in Europe. The increasing number of pupils enrolling year on year highlighted the need for extra space to accommodate the growth and ensure each student had enough space to continue performing.

IAB required two large marquees that would be used as dancing studios and due to the time constraints a fast turnaround was needed to ensure they were ready to use at the start of the school year. The initial discussions saw IAB wanting to rent the large marquees for 9 months but then realised it was better value for money to purchase.


The custom made large marquee structure measuring 10.00m in width, 15.00m in length and a 4.00m side height was chosen. The marquee featured a low peak, thermo insulated and opaque roof. The energy efficient thermo insulated roof reduces heating and cooling costs while the opaque roof blocks out sunlight. Sandwich panel walling was used along with ISO double glass.

The large marquee fulfilled the clients’ needs and the Institute of Arts Barcelona are very happy with the two dance studios.
