Waratah Community Park

“Structural complexity meets elegant simplicity”

Executive Summary

Fleetwood were engaged by Tract Consultants to assist with the buildability of their design for a complex and intricate shelter at Waratah Community Park in Craigieburn, Victoria. Originally another company was earmarked for the engineering phase, but due to issues with the scale of the project drawings it didn’t work out. After reworking the drawings three times, Fleetwood identified a way to make the design specs and space work with gutters, fully drained, to conceal any leakage or drainage (nice and neat!), before moving into full shop detailing, construction and installation on site.

Fleetwood Involvement

Fleetwood’s involvement in the final design and engineering stages were key to the project’s success. Our initial calculations showed the desired roof components would not meet the aesthetic parameters of the design brief. By taking an innovative and intuitive engineering approach to this challenge, we found a new solution that allowed the design to be brought to life while also achieving the client’s desired aesthetic for the shelter.
