Award for Excellence 2018, Tension Structures (Coated Fabrics) – Less than 250sqm

The client had four requests: to double the restaurant capacity by providing an all weather structure extending out over the new deck, ensure the restaurant stood out from the crowd while still providing protection from the elements, keep the established native pandanus palms beside the restaurant, and ensure that all council requirements were met. The time-frame was quite difficult as the client was adamant that the job be completed in time for the Christmas and New Years period, but after a lot of hard work this project was successfully completed in time. All involved in the design, manufacture and installation process are so proud of the result, quite a few of them have gone and enjoyed a meal or beer under the cover themselves.
