The client requested a rooftop shade solution over a children’s sandpit that was retractable and minimised loads into the post tensioned slab. It was a
requirement for the fabric to be PVC membrane and also motorised for ease of use. The key complexities with this build were: providing a maximum
covered area while also meeting childcare safety standards for climb-ability, lifting the structure into position via a crane, working with existing post
tensioned cables, the fabrication and installation of a custom reinforced beam to the existing roof structure, working over the existing sandpit and uneven
rocky surrounds, and the time-frame of just over five weeks. The end user, customer, architect and engineers were extremely happy with the overall
delivery of the project.
