Spantech was commissioned by the Department of Education Qld to construct a multipurpose shade structure with a coloured concrete slab at a school in Pimpama.

The school sought an all-weather play and assembly area designed to align with the open modern feel of the school.

Spantech constructed the 20 metre x 20 metre shade structure, bordered by existing walkways that link to other school buildings. The high roof is open at one end to allow ambient light and maximum airflow while the enclosed end features a free-spanning end wall to protect students from prevailing weather and direct early morning sunlight.

The shade structure was designed by architect firm Gary J Garnett and Associates.
