MCA Retractable Roof
Vector Lifting was contracted to design, manufacture, install and commission the Moving Roof for the new stadium upgrade for the Margaret Court Arena in Melbourne. All components, including the main drive bogies, trailing bogies and control system were manufactured and installed by Vector Lifting. Design development and site installation included working along side the arena architect and structural engineer to develop a product that suited the design scope of the project. The complexity around the structure and the requirements outlined by the architect ensured constant collaboration was required to achieve a successful outcome. Pictured, below, is one of the Roof Main Bogies being craned onto the fixed roof runways.
