Nerang Railway Station - Nerang Australia

Project Size: 435 sq.m (4,680 sq.ft)

Nerang Railway Station is part of a new electrified rail network between Brisbane and the Gold Coast built and operated by Queensland Railways.

Two identical fan shaped tension membranes shade the passenger access ways on the East and West sides of the new station terminal. Seaman 8032 MWTedlar'PVF PVC Polyester membrane was chosen to provide high levels of filtered light under the membrane allowing a smooth transistion from the darker underground tunnel areas on the Eastern and Western Entrances.

The combination of translucent tension membrane with architectural steelwork, glass blocks and polished stone clad walls produces a high quality durable facility with practical benefits for the rail commuting public.

Sunshine Coast Airport - Sunshine Coast Australia

Project Size: 1,250 sq.m (13,450 sq.ft)

Sunshine Coast Airport has been upgraded and extended to handle increased traffic to the beautiful Queensland Sunshine Coast. Tension Membrane Entry, Carpark and Internal Structures add exciting architectural features to the facility. The Entry Structure consists of 7 individual Conical and Hypar membranes supported by 3 masts, perimeter columns and backstays.

Wing like Canopies span the main carpark walkway providing shade and visual impact to the entrance. Internal Membranes consisting of 21 individual Hypars of high translucency fabric are located under the central glass skylight which is over 90 metres in length.

Seaman Tedlar´┐Ż PVC/Polyester in various translucencies was used throughout the project. TSS in-house finite element analysis was extensively used for modelling, shapefinding and patterning.
