Royal Wolf partners Tennis Australia to bring more entertainment to fans The Australian Open 2017 saw the partnership of Royal Wolf and Tennis Australia rise to an exciting new level with the introduction of two state of the art innovations: the huge curved Sound Wall and the highly popular Fan Shack. For several years, Royal Wolf has been proud to be Tennis Australia’s number one choice for container solutions, supplying over 100 various containers each year for office and catering supplies. This year, the brief expanded in line with Tennis Australia’s goal of enhancing the spectator experience, bringing tennis action and entertainment to a larger audience based outside the Tennis Arena. Tennis Australia are now in discussions with Royal Wolf for the 2018 Australian Open. [huge_it_slider id="18"] The Brief Tennis Australia’s brief was to deliver two ambitious projects to the one site at Mirrarung Marr Park in Melbourne within just 2 days in time for the first tennis grand slam of the year. Project 1 – the Sound Wall Royal Wolf was required to provide a 9 metre high x 80 metre long Sound Wall on a sloping surface with a curved shape to match the landscape. This required a level roof to enable signage to be attached. This facility was critical to Tennis Australia’s objective of delivering an outstanding spectator experience as it was to house a 12 metre LED screen providing life size player vision for the audience. Project 2 – the Fan Shack Royal Wolf was required to custom-modify a container to fit on a small footprint to provide a social space for 24 hour news, social media updates, videos, player visits and more. Other Container Solutions Royal Wolf was to supply over 100 additional containers including:
- 20’ and 40’ containers
- Concrete filled 20’ platforms (a new product introduced into the building and construction field)
- 20’ and 40’ flat racks (road and rail products)
- 20’ outdoor rooms
- 20’ offices
- 20’ refrigeration units to be used onsite.
