Australian Export Project

With less than 2 months from enquiry to delivery, we achieved the (almost) impossible.

We were tasked with designing, shipping and building a Grandstand canopy for the Adelaide 500 in South Australia. The canopy was a vital part of the event infrastructure as it would act as a 210 metre sun shade to provide as much cover as possible to spectators at the track.

Bespoke design & delivery

Our in-house CAD and manufacturing departments collaborated closely to design a custom solution for this client to fit over their existing grandstand seats. This includes a 16-bay and an 8-bay structure with cut-to-size PVC roof sheets. The outcome is a bespoke grandstand canopy for the pit straight of the infamous Adelaide500 event.

Working alongside other contractors to ensure key timelines were met, we craned the temporary seating canopy into place once it had been constructed on the racetrack. Watch it here.

A key element of this project was that our client needed to be able to install and remove the canopy themselves when required, therefore we sent some of our most experienced site team to train them on the installation and removal of our product.
