The V8 SUPERCARS is one of the premier motorsport events in Australia, attracting more than 1.65 million people over the season.
Following our previous success supplying the “Pit Pavilion” structure to the South Australian Motorsport Board, HTS Clear Span Structure Systems were approached by the organiser of the Gold Coast V8 SUPERCARS Event to design and manufacture a state of the art hospitality structure for their premium event on the Gold Coast, Australia.
The brief was to design a 3-storey temporary Pit Lane Pavilion building to house all team garages and corporate hospitality.
This was one of the most structurally complex demountable buildings ever manufactured worldwide.
The Structure has a semi-curved roof design and was supplied with our energy efficient opaque thermo roof system.
The ground level consists of 36 pit lane garages for each of the competing V8 super car teams; each garage facility was fitted with high speed roller shutter door units. The structure was supplied with a A 20 minute fire rated lower ground floor (above the pit lane garages), a sound proofed race control area, fire rated ‘flash guards’, internal and external staircases and an integrated 1.50m wide rear walkway on levels 2 and 3.
The first and second floor incorporated numerous different sized hospitality suits each holding between 40 – 100 guests, operational offices and viewing areas. This technically advanced structure features a combination of vertical and slanted glass walling sections, energy efficient thermo roofs combined with a curved roof design making it both functional and aesthetically attractive.
