Award for Excellence 2019, Recreational

The brief was to manufacture and install two family-size eco safari tents with decking in a Gold Coast tourist park complete with features to provide a glamping experience. The use of Australian made materials and products was preferred and one of the deckings needed to have wheelchair access. The windows and doors had to have midge mesh screens and internal electricals and plumbing were to be included. The complexities of the project included the tent having three layers of coverage on the roof section. The top layer is Australian made commercial grade shade cloth and the centre layer is waterproof fabric to provide protection. The tent roofing is Australian made 505gsm waterproof canvas. The project also needed to feature maintenance-free composite decking and be completed in a very tight eight-week time-frame. The outcome was that the customer was very pleased with the end result and is considering further tents in the future.
