Battye Park was a unique brief presented by the Ipswich City Council. The end goal was to create a carnival themed playground full of bright colours and vibrant elements reflective of those found in a circus or carnival atmosphere. Additionally, in it’s first iteration, there was no provision for shade above the play equipment, resulting in hot and dangerous conditions.
Several challenges arose in the design and manufacturing process of this project. These included;
The final design solution was comprised of a series of six-sided and four-sided shade structures – each fit with multicoloured tops and decorative edge seams. Working closely with our powder coater, the decorative polka dot posts were fabricated using a two step processes allowing for a vibrant and accurate finish. The decorative edging was cut and sewed by hand to ensure a highly detailed finish to the circus theme. Additionally, custom made anti- climbing plates were fabricated to prevent vandalism to the completed project. Though not a traditional shade structure install, the client was left extremely impressed with the project and how well we were able to adhere to their brief.

Once again I would like to thank you for all of your hard work and your help in getting this project completed to a fantastic quality and in line with program.
I look forward to working with Advanced Shade Systems and yourself again in the near future. Kind regards
The project has been a great success, and well done to Advanced Shade systems for excellent communication with LCC.
I want to give the boys who stood the poles a wrap because they were really professional on the install and left the place like they were never there.
Entire job was great, very smooth operation and hassle free. A particular high point was the performance of the guys on site. They were very easy to deal with, very obliging, good safe work, great finish and excellent clean up. A pleasant experience. Excellent result and a pleasure to deal with.
Can you please commend both Gary and Scott on the work they did here at The Gap Child Care Centre. I was very impressed with their manner and the consideration they showed for the children and staff by ensuring that all of the noisy work was completed before children's rest times. They also were very helpful and friendly, and were very understanding on the needs of children.
Thank you also for your patience and understanding as we have been trying to complete this work. You have been very patient and helpful throughout this whole process. Thank you!
What a wonderful job. The club is over the moon with the quality of the shade structure that Advanced Shade Systems has built. Facebook comments are flowing fast with positive remarks about the new shade and your companies name is very prominent. Please pass on my thanks to all involved.
Communications from the office was a plus, the faultless installation, fantastic re-laying of pavers and clean-up, an overall great job, owner very happy. Love the finished product.
Thank you for the confirmation of the completion of the job, The works look fantastic. I was onsite myself yesterday & saw what a great job your guys had done. Thanks again for all the assistance. Kind Regards,
I visited the Mater Hospital site, shade sails look great, thanks for getting this over the line.
Just a quick message to say how happy I was with Pez And Donny for there help on the
G8 at Arundel
The works were done in such a professional manner and nothing was a drama for the Boys
Wasn’t the easiest job with rocky conditions but the boys pushed through and got the job done on time and still smiling.
I would have no hesitation in recommending you guys for future works or to new clients.
Thanks heaps and look forward to working with you guys in the future.

The shades look just fantastic. We are very happy with them. I've never seen workers leave a job site so clean and tidy. Not a stone out of place. They were just the best and I cannot speak more highly of the two guys. I have let everyone and anyone know what a good job your guys and company have done. We have had so many great comments about the shades. Melbourne Cup Day was made even better by having patrons outside and under cover. I will certainly recommend your company to anyone.
I wanted to let your Company know how impressed we were with the quality of work and service we recieved from the two guys who came to install the shade sail and blinds. They were polite, considerate and even cleaned up after themselves which is a rare find with workmen these days. We are also really impressed with the way the blinds and shade sail look and how they function.
The guys who were here to install them ensured that their work and the product supplied was to the highest possible standard and for that we are very grateful. If you could please pass on our thanks and appreciation for working around us, the children and the chickens and showing such consideration for others, we would really appreciate it.
Thank you and kind regards
