Canopy replacement at Goodwood Racecourse

  • DATE: January - February 2012
  • CLIENT: AJ Tensile
  • WORK COMPLETED: Canopy replacement

For this canopy replacement project we worked under the management of AJ Tensile Fabrications. Hi-Maintenance supplied labour and undertook the removal and replacement of 4 fabric membranes surrounding the Parade Ring at Goodwood Racecourse.Working on one building at a time, we had to de-tension the membrane, remove the steel components, clean up and touch up the steelwork as necessary, dress the new membrane with the steel components, re-fit and then finally re-tension. The works were carried out using a combination of powered access and rope access.

Despite very testing conditions, including having to remove about a foot of snow from the work area on a number of occasions, all four buildings were successfully changed within the planned timeframe and within budget, ensuring that  both AJ Tensile and their end client were satisfied.
