Tensile Design and Construct was engaged by JMD Design to supply the infill material for the Treehouse project at the Blaxland Riverside Parklands.

Designed by JMD Design as the centrepiece of the new playground upgrade, the Treehouse is a 12m high structure that provides visitors impressive views up the Parramatta river and over the parklands. Tensile used its Jakob Webnet stainless steel mesh as the infill material for the Treehouse structure. Tensile’s stainless steel mesh was specified for its ability to deliver both transparency and strength in a single product.

Webnet mesh panels in various shapes and sizes have been installed on the walls and roof of the Treehouse at scalable heights for the users. The stainless steel mesh is also utilised in the nearby amenities block between the overarching roof and partition walls to provide ventilation and security. Such applications are ideal for the flexible Webnet mesh to show its unique dynamic fabric-like ability.

Tensile’s skilled team installed the mesh panels for both the Treehouse as well as the amenities block using Jakob Inox fittings. Being pre-made offsite, the panels were installed on time and the project completed within budget. Webnet stainless steel mesh plays to its strengths of being a lightweight, rugged and multifunctional material.

The highly popular playground feature and supporting buildings make a great addition to the parklands.
