After eighteen years, the acclaimed ‘tented’ roof as it become affectionately known, had reached the end of its lifespan. A younger snappier model was needed to revitalize this world-famous national treasure. The Mound Stand’s new fabric roof shares the same look as its predecessor. Flamboyant multi cone fabric membranes soar skyward, sail like in their splendour, supported by their mast like props from the giant steel super structure below. There is further greatness in the constitution itself, advancements in fabric technology promise that this new roof can revel appreciably longer in all its splendid glory.
