Brisbane Boys College commissioned a landscape architect to design a new outdoor amphitheatre at the school. We worked with the landscape architect to ensure that the area would have sufficient shade, and that the proposed shade design would positively contribute to the aesthetic appeal of the college.
The structure was designed and engineered in a cantilever shape which enabled us to fabricate the structure without any posts being required in the seating area itself. Any students or patrons seated in this area have an uninterrupted view of the performance being conducted in the amphitheater.
Designing a shade structure to be installed in the vicinity of heritage listed buildings will always be challenging because there are many stakeholders to satisfy. The client is very happy with the finished product as it not only provides excellent shade to the area throughout the days, but it also blends in beautifully with the surrounding architecture and landscaping.
