Essentially the purpose of the project was about cost effective space creation.

The tensioned awning is positioned over a deck area on the first floor at the Nambour children’s hospital.  The Hospital is located on the side of a steep incline, the deck is located in an elevated position.

The awning-covered deck now allows children recovering from surgery or illness to play outdoors on the deck in supervised shaded conditions.  Previously children were confined to an internal hospital playroom.
