During my time at Advanced Shade Systems (2018-2019), I designed various types of shade sails and structures. One of them was a custom cantilever shade structure, for Brisbane City Council at Oriel Park.
LEARNING EXPERIENCES / CHALLENGES
Designing within the clients budget and within the design standards and limitations.
Creating technical drawings accurately for the parts of the structures to be manufactured.
Sometimes there were a few iterations to the drawings to make sure the parts fit together and are durable and meeting the design standards for shade sails and structures were a challenge.
At the start of each project, the team goes through the client brief and I go through the design specifications. Usually would go on a site visit and measure the area and note down any obstacles for when installing the structures. Then I would start concept generation and sketch some ideas and create atleast 2-3 design concepts in AutoCAD and SketchUp to be decided and approved by the client.
Once the design is confirmed and approved by the client, the product is modelled in Sketchup and shop drawings are created in AutoCAD and then sent to the external structural engineer to be engineered and receive a form 15 depending on the context. Once the drawings are approved, manufacturing is commenced locally. Once the components are manufactured, the shade sails and structures are all assembled on site by the installers.
