University College in Illinois, USA came to HTS tentiQ USA when they needed a new dance studio after donating existing gym space to the Indianapolis Colts for indoor practice.

The main priority was to design, fabricate, ship and install a structure that provided the equivalent quality and functionality of a permanent building, but within a tight ten week lead time.

It was also important that the structure could be built on an un-level site.


HTS tentiQ sales manager for North America managed the project and provided the client with a permanent event structure 20.00m wide, 32.00m long and 3.20m high.

The structure had insulated hard walls, a cassette flooring system suitable for dance activity, interior hallways, an entry way and three complete dance studios. Dedicated solely to the collegiate program the structure’s ongoing use was to be for the college students who enrolled in the local dance program.

In addition the permanent event structure was fully insulated and had HVAC and electrics fitted to retain the right temperature for the students. These works were installed while the frame was being built and immediately after the shell was completed.

HTS tentiQ achieved the fast turnaround period and complex build on un-level ground with ease, providing the University College with a custom-built permanent building, fully insulated and temperature controlled, in just ten weeks.
