shade structure installed for Xenia Childcare in Brisbane by Versatile Structures


Recently, we had the pleasure of working with Xenia - a purpose-built childcare facility located within Lutwyche City Shopping Centre. Market Central Lutwyche is located on busy Lutwyche Road, which is the major arterial that runs north-south from Brisbane City. Lutwyche City is 5kms north of the Brisbane CBD.

Xenia needed a shade solution to protect children and staff from the harsh Queensland sun and rain, and they turned to us for help. Initially, they asked us to supply and install a single 14 x 7.2m hip and ridge shade structure. However, upon seeing our designs, they recognized the potential to improve their outdoor areas and decided to install two structures instead.

As with any project, we faced some design challenges, particularly related to the capacity of the existing slab to accommodate bending moment loads. However, our team of experts was up to the task. We designed the larger barrel vault structure with a moment resisting top frame assembly, ensuring that the outdoor space at Xenia is both safe and enjoyable for all.

We are thrilled with the final outcome of this project, and we are grateful to Xenia for entrusting us with this important task. We take great pride in our work and are committed to providing our clients with the highest level of professionalism and excellence.

If you are in need of a shade solution for your facility, please don't hesitate to contact us. We would be happy to discuss your needs and help you find the perfect shade solution for your space.

Thank you for considering Versatile Structures as your shade solution provider.
