The Bend Motorsport Park
The Bend Motorsport Park is one of the most significant developments in Australian motorsport history. A state of the art, motorsport facility, The Bend Motorsport Park delivers an exhilarating experience for competitors, enthusiasts and spectators alike. Construction started on The Bend Motorsport Park in early 2016 with the main motor racing circuit completed in April 2018 in time for the first events. Additional precincts were opened in 2019.
The supply and installation of 83 Rolling Shutter Doors for the pit lane and associated services areas that were linked to a central location that would allow remote operation of the doors. The southern side of the Welcome Centre presented an installation clearance issue with a series of cable trays running across each opening within close proximity to the header area. This area needed to house the roller door, but unfortunately didn’t allow the required space required for the door. A review of the existing structure and required modification revealed that the precast panels structure, having been formed with cut outs in set locations to mount both trays and doors made modification unreasonably expensive.
Working closely with the electrical trades contractor and on site management, B&D Group ascertained that a minor manual adjustment of the cable trays already in situ coupled with amending the specification to an alternative B&D roller door (R2W Traditional Wideline), we were able to accommodate the door installation.
The smaller diameter and alternative profile of the R2W meant that we were able to fit the door between the cable tray, negating the need for costly major alterations while maintaining maximum clearance.
