Caulfield Cup 2016 – Keeping the Punters Cool

The Situation

The BMW Australia Caulfield Cup. It’s one of Australia’s richest thoroughbred horse races and the richest of its type in the world (2,400 metres).

This year’s Caulfield Cup took place at Flemington on Saturday 15 October. A strong finish in the Caulfield Cup is one of the possible qualification methods for a run in next week’s Melbourne Cup.

The team also made sure they gave particular attention to the visibility of the air conditioning ducting and units.

The Solution

Our installation included the following equipment,

And as is the nature of Melbourne weather we also provided temporary heating for outside verandahs.
