If you have a spring or summer event, this is our busy season, we recommend booking with us as early as possible.
GuildWorks is brings more than just shade to your event. We provide a visual presence that will make your event stand out. Often our work adds to the viral nature social media exposure. We see an increased snapchats, instagrams, facebook posts, selfies... all of which people will tag your event thus adding to marketing exposure during and after the event which in turn creates more buzz the coming year. Our work also may reduce the impact of summer heat thus providing a safer environment for your attendees, potentially lowering the impact on your first aid and health services.

When we arrived at the Squaw Valley Creek Resort in September 2016, nestled into the famous Olympic Valley - just minutes from Lake Tahoe in California, we were awestruck. Welcomed by beautiful blue skies, epic mountain landscapes, and approximately 10 million ground nesting yellow jackets swarming all over the specific hillside we were to build. The yellow jackets especially liked us once we started hammering construction spikes and tent stakes into the grounds they call home. Luckily the catastrophe of stinging yellow jackets was soon forgotten replaced by spectacular beauty of this valley and 3 weeks of outstanding weather.
While being one of the most beautiful locations to build, it was also one of our most complicated temporary installations on record outside of Pickathon. We were up for the challenge though. This was not an "easy" task considering every point in the system was unique, and the grounds were entirely uneven, and we were given a narrow window to pass engineering and inspection to meet strict California standards. Thanks to the diligence of our design team, our engineers and the perseverance of our onsite installation crew, this installation marks a milestone success.
The transformation of this natural setting is astounding and we hope you enjoy the photos below.
We're proud to share this fascinating display of fabric, metal and ropes.
Through multiple stages spanning three years, GuildWorks fabricated and installed a series of permanent rain canopies at Ahamtoulli, a beautiful eco-resort on the island of Corfu in Greece. This amazing property is a visionary place where your world can sparkle alive again.
Our custom canopies include two major rain collection canopies which provide much needed shade for the decks in front of the yurts as well as protection between the yurt facilities as patrons walk to the adjacent bathrooms and shower extensions. A third canopy was designed and installed to cover the dining hall and kitchen and allows for the stove's heat vent.
When we were first contacted about this project, the property was still being developed, a vision of what could be beginning to come to light, the lands were still being cleared, and the pools still being built. Today the property has grown into a beautiful inviting space, and GuildWorks is excited to be a part of their vision and their growth process.
