East Ayrshire Grandstand

Sports Grandstand Fabric Canopy

Project Outline

After creating the barrel vaulted roof for the East Ayrshire Athletics Centre covered track in September 2011, Base have returned to add a simple grandstand canopy along the edge of the outside running track.

Our Solution

Integral rainwater collection diverts water from the surface of the membrane into flexi-pipes that connect directly into the steelwork of the structure, concealing the drainage system and preventing drips of water down the back of the neck. The minimalist steelwork also maximises space under the canopy whilst providing convenient posts to perform warm up stretches against. 

 

Results

Really a showcase for simple, effective design, the unobtrusive canopy does it’s job brilliantly. All in all a real star of track and field.
