Event Staffing & Details.
All events booked at The Green Building come with our basic staffing package. Two event staff members will be present one hour prior to event start time and will remain onsite throughout the duration of the event and breakdown. The basic staffing package includes eight (8) hours of service (including breakdown of the event). Additional staffing is determined based upon the number of guests invited, the utilization of the space, load in and load out needs. These employees are paid by hourly rates, rather than a calculated gratuity or tip.
The Green Building leaves lots of room for creativity in decor and design. Details may be found here regarding in-house furniture and rentals.
The Green Building is equipped with an in-house sound system including speakers, two wireless microphones, and a built-in projection system. Based upon the needs of your wedding, an in-house A/V technician familiar with our systems may be required at an additional fee.
