The Cairns International Tennis centre provides world-class facilities for our regional athletes and annually the focus falls on the Cairns International. The risks that had been occurring were around the wet season when inclement weather of rains and excessive heat was bearing down on the players. A decision was made that Centre Court One should receive a tensile membrane roof structure to shade and protect the players from the effects of UV rays, rainfall as well as direct sunlight that it was uncomfortable. Richard Field Constructions was employed to build a temporary wearing layer over the existing tennis courts to protect, which consisted of a layer of ballast course. Construction commenced with low level Keller Frankie pile systems, RFC piles stock caps, structural steel was painted in a local Cairns factory white which required very careful erection sequencing to prevent scratching. The membrane roof tensile fabric is engineered by Tensys and it was stretched out over the structural steel and ratchet it into place to provide a trafficable surface that can be walked over. Electrics consisted of concealed wiring within the structural steel frame. New plexipave was applied over the court surface for softness under foot.
