Protecting Royal Hats

The Royal venue for horseracing founded in 1711 underwent a dramatic renovation. Royal Ascot, an internationally renowned sporting and social occasion, where tradition, pageantry and style all meet in a glorious setting, has a magnificent grandstand to compliment their grand showpiece.70,000 spectators benefit from the vast facilities provided within the grandstand complex. A spectacular 300m long light filled atrium is made possible by the inspiring membrane roof. 54 individual translucent hyperbolic parabolic panels form the membrane roof providing protection to both parade ring viewers on the entrance side of the structure and to the horseracing audience on the track side. 136 mesh membrane awnings in the distinctive Royal Ascot blue give additional protection to spectators below upper terracing.
