Hadley Game & Sporting, Forthampton Estate. Gloucestershire
Bespoke Safari Tent Shooting Lodge 5m x 18m
In June 2019, Claire & Adam at Hadley Game came to Bond after the use of a barn for their hospitality space was suddenly unavailable to them. Claire recalls the initial contact ... ‘We had a bit of a panic to try and find a high end but cost effective and feasible solution - we were given the name of Bond Fabrications and we cannot thank that person enough for putting us in touch with Mike, Michelle and the team!’
‘We initially met with mike who went through all the details of the structures available including the sizes, colours, personalisation’s etc. Within a short time we had come up with a design that Mike helped us with and we were ready to get going! Mike gave us some brilliant information to help make sure that we made a suitable decking/base for our safari lodge structure. The set up and installation was a smooth process, and they communicated the whole way through to make sure we knew what was happening.’
The result was a large bespoke steel framed safari tent, designed with the addition of a discreet kitchen area and a huge bright open space for entertaining or just pre-shoot elevenses complete with a wood burner.
Claire & Adam were thrilled with the result ... ‘The safari lodge is now a much-loved part of our business. Clients and guests are always dubious when we talk about a ‘tent’ as our hospitality space - we quite like to see their surprised faces when they arrive on site to such an impressive and unique hospitality space.'
