Captain Burke Park

Problem Overview

Captain Burke Park in Kangaroo Point is a high-profile park for Brisbane City Council given its proximity to both the CBD and the Story Bridge. It hosts numerous events during the year, from weddings to fireworks displays, however, the playground equipment was void of shade. Brisbane City Council approached Advanced Shade Systems to design and install a new shade solution over this playground and immediate surrounds

Project Challenges and Constraints

Several challenges arose in the design and install process of this project. These included;

  • The park’s proximity to the river posed a real threat to footing design. Constant consultation with an engineer was going to be required.
  • Given the high-profile nature of the park, the shade solution needed to add value to the park and playground rather than look out of place.
  • There was the possibility that additional sails may be required in the future so allowance for those needed to be provided.

Solution

The final solution for Captain Burke Park was a shade install comprised of seven linked HYPAR shade sails. These sails were designed and delivered to provide as much shade coverage to the playground equipment as possible. Finished in cool colours, both the powder coated posts and Monotec shade fabric complement the existing playground whilst not standing out a detracting from the surrounding city and river views. 12 months after the initial install, council requested an addition sail be installed which was delivered by the team at Advanced Shade Systems adhering to same aesthetic as before.
