Project Details

Location: Randwick, NSW

Completion Date: March 2022

Size: 350 sqm

Fabric: HDPE - Commercial Heavy 430 FR

Client: Mostyn Copper & Australian Turf Club

The Brief

MakMax previously installed The Royal Randwick Racecourse Grandstand Canopies and was approached to design, engineer and install a HDPE shade canopy over the loading dock.  The main purpose of the structure was to hide the view of the loading dock from the newly built grandstand.

The new Royal Randwick Leading Dock HDPE shade canopy was to be fixed to an existing concrete structure to cover the loading dock area which is situated between two buildings.

The Concept

The HDPE mesh fabric panel covering the Royal Randwick Loading Dock area is approximately 20 x 20 square and was hand-made by MakMax Taiyo Middle East in our state-of-the-art fabrication facility in Brisbane.

The Royal Randwick Loading Dock project was a customised fabrication project where our client, the Australian Turf Club, requested a 4m x 4m logo affixed to the top-side of a new 350m2 HDPE shade canopy.

The Materials

The team at Gale Pacific were invaluable at provide advice and assistance on this project to propose the best fabric solution. The loading dock structure is made from Gale Pacific Commercial Heavy 430 FR in Navy Blue and features the ATC logo in the same fabric in Desert Sand colour.

Our fabrication team used a plotter to cut out the logo shape in the sand-coloured HDPE, before carefully aligning and hand stitching the logo pieces in the centre of fabricated Navy-Blue panels. Final machine stitching secured the logo in place on the fully-fabricated membrane panel ready for installation at the Royal Randwick loading dock.
