Narre Warren Bowls Club

Custom PVC Barrel Vault

Wondering what it’s like to use a bowling green with a PVC Canopy? President Peter Groom says “The main thing that you get with this roof, is the feeling of space. It isn’t hemming you in – and there’s no echo!”. Watch below to find out more.

Large double-green bowls club

The Narre Warren Bowls Club required a cover for its greens to enable
year-round use. Previously, events were often cancelled due to rain.


Working closely with the client 

We worked closely with the club throughout the whole process, including handling the design and council approval process for the club. This included architectural drawings, removing the need for an architect. During the design process, we recommended the addition of end infills to the barrel vault to provide additional protection from the elements and enable use in all weather conditions, with dimmable 300lux rated lighting system certified by independent lighting designer.

Preserving the greens’ surfaces during construction

One particular challenge during construction was the need to stay off the green to avoid damaging the surface. We were able to erect the barrel vault without contacting the surface at all, including during inclement weather. We are delighted to say we delivered the project on time and on budget with no impact on the green, resulting in one very happy client.
