Installation of this COLA Canopy came at a time of huge disruption – New Zealand’s first Covid-19 lockdown and also a very wet winter. Our Operations team were able to overcome this though, and with strategic planning we were able to meet strict delivery deadlines to ensure the COLA was up prior to the roof replacement works.
Proudly this is Shade Systems biggest structure yet! There were complexities with the design. We had two court layouts to contend with, that were separated by a walk-through in between. It was important that the structure clear-spanned the walkway area with little post obstruction. Plus the two court layouts meant a different radius in the rafters and connecting these two structures.
With all the finishing touches, this COLA (Covered Outdoor Learning Area) has all the bells and whistles – lights, cameras, sound system and WIFI, plus a replacement TigerTurf surface. Quite an achievement by the team!
