Having successfully completed a playground project in Clyde and a Corten steel wall in Cranbourne, the team at TRJ Engineering have once again showcased their commitment to quality steel fabrication and innovative engineering.
The developers of a new estate in Clyde commissioned TRJ Engineering to supply an exciting and innovative play tower and bridge for its playground, which acts as a social hub both for residents and the wider public community. Taking the drawings from the landscape architects, the team used their own interpretation to create a unique and exciting piece of play equipment.
The style of the play tower features two towers connected by a check bridge, inspired by the finish line of a race track. The towers are painted bright yellow to match the surrounding outdoor furniture and a concrete track completes a ‘lap’ as it runs under the bridge, providing a place for the kids to run and let their imagination run with them.
Inside the play tower are numerous levels for climbing, allowing for the kids to exercise their bodies and their minds. On one side of the tower, a fireman’s pole provides the perfect place to glide down, while on the other a bright red slide acts as a key, eye-catching feature.
TRJ are confident that their unique design will keep the kids happily entertained for hours and will be a community favourite. Let their imaginations begin!
TRJ Engineering also recently delivered a Corten wall to Summer Hill estate in Cranbourne. The artistic Corten wall is completely unique from every other wall project that the team have previously fabricated. Over 100 individual panels of various shapes and sizes were joined together to create an interesting and completely unique wall. When viewed from above, the wall resembles a snake slithering through the grass.
The wall was created in several separate sections and bolted together onsite. The main challenges TRJ faced while fabricating the wall was keeping the structure strong enough to lift after each section was complete. To combat this, they added stiffeners and balance weights on the inside, which were removed once the sections were in position onsite.
The site install went much smoother than anticipated. TRJ supplied laser cut templates so that the concreters could dig and pour the concrete, while supporting the rag bolts into position. Once this had set, the wall was simply bolted down onto those rag bolts and connected to each another with minimal fuss.
With time, as the Corten steel weathers to create a unique pattern and colour, this wall will be a signifying feature of the estate and will be the talk of the estate for years to come.
