Spantech was contracted to design and construct a multipurpose concrete court and shade structure at the Cape Byron Rudolph Steiner School in Ewingsdale, NSW.
Designed in conjunction with architect Julie Lipset, the Covered Outdoor Learning Area or COLA construction at the school included some unusual features such as the beams near the apex of the roof, which were installed to allow aerial circus training. The structure easily supports the additional load of two people swinging from the beams.
Several sports-related features were added to the court including padding for all columns, rotating basketball-netball towers, and additional practice basketball backboards on four columns at appropriate height to suit primary and secondary students. The COLA structure also features retractable perimeter nets to prevent balls from escaping into the adjacent wetlands.
