We’re excited to announce that Fabritecture took home THREE awards at the 2019 SuperExpo hosted by the Specialised Textiles Association on the Gold Coast, QLD Australia this year!
The annual industry awards dinner was held at the Star Casino in Broadbeach to celebrate and showcase some of the textile industry’s most innovative and exciting projects.
Of the 3 projects Fabritecture entered, we came home with an award for each one! We are always extremely humbled and grateful to be able to participate in industry events such as these. It’s a wonderful reflection on our team and the projects we complete when we win these industry awards.
2019 STA Winning Projects
Winner in the Tension Structures 250sqm – 2,000sqm category
In 2018, the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary on the Gold Coast, QLD, welcomed a significant upgrade to the amphitheatre area of their increasingly popular free flight bird show Wildskies. Part of this redevelopment included upgrading the existing structure to a much larger shade solution that also complimented the renovations of the area.

Special Commendation in the Shade Sail or Structures – Commercial category
Located beside the newly constructed Yeppoon Lagoon in Yeppoon, QLD, the Yeppoon Skatepark is now the proud owner of a 500m2 colourful mesh shade structure. The cable-supported structure is a colourful addition to the newly constructed area, utilising several colours of Monotec 370 mesh shade cloth to make a creative piece of fabric art.

Special Commendation in the Tension Structures – Less than 250sqm category
The Joan Kirner Hospital project features a series of architectural shade structures for an outdoor area of the recently redeveloped children’s hospital. The structures are circular and semi-circular in shape, utilising architectural structural steel and PVC mesh fabric to create both free-standing and wall-supported structures.
Thanks again to everyone who helps us create these amazing projects. These awards offer great exposure and are always an honour to receive (plus they make our office look fantastic!).
