Principal Diane Parkinson felt that students growing up in New Zealand should spend more time outdoors. For her students, this COLA canopy was the answer to that. As a result, we covered a large area, providing ample room for the whole school to utilise any time of the year.
When the tender opportunity came up, it was a chance for Shade Systems to showcase their design and build skills. This turned out to be the largest covered courts for a primary/middle school in New Zealand. Consequently, we proudly finished this absolutely stunning piece of architecture that every junior school in the country will envy.
The project, entirely managed by Shade Systems, is complete. Consequently, the “BBI Sports Cloud” was officially opened on 25 August 2017. Over 1100 students, staff, parents and onlookers attended the ‘Grand Opening’ ceremony. The finish line for the School’s annual Road Race, held that day, was under the new canopy.
Most noteworthy, a fantastic shaded facility for an exceptional school!
