Kaitaia College Tennis Canopy

The purpose of the Project was to create an outdoor covered sports area for both tennis and basketball games for the School.  The canopy was to be 33m x 54.5 metres = 1825 sqm.  The cover made from Serge Ferrari Fabric giving the school the security of longevity of the structure.

The design was a barrel vault system used in many schools and sports ground to protect the players from sun and rain and to give a light ambience to the area covered.  Being one of the older schools in the area the underground facilities were a challenge to ensure no major disruption to any power, drainage etc  was encountered to avoid more expense for the School Board.

Since its construction the school has been able to hold many events under the canopy – not only sports events but prize giving’s – social gatherings etc.

Fabric Structures created the design and build package which included coordinating lighting, security and other contractors to give the School a finished product.
