Case Studies

National Arboretum Canberra

Located in Canberra, The National Arboretum is a 250- hectare facility which is the host to 100 forests of rare and endangered trees from around the world. This legacy project with important environmental and conservation messages will live beyond our lifetimes.

The opportunity to design a play space as part of the 100 forests facility offered an opportunity for designers Taylor Cullity Lethlean to creatively engage children with the beauty of trees and, foster a life-long connection to this remarkable environment.

Speers Point Park

Speers Point Park is situated at the Northern tip of Lake Macquarie and has become the largest and most widely used recreational playspace in the region. The concept for the playground came from the mining industry headgear used extensively in the area over the last century.

Lake Macquarie City Council decided to design and manage the project using their own landscape architects and from the early stages worked with us to develop their ideas into a workable and ultimately award winning playground.

Highbrook Park Muswellbrook

We were approached by Landscape Architecture in late 2013. The concept was in place but only as a brief. Numerous discussions and iterations were developed in conjunction with the LA, structural engineers, council and sculptural artist.

The final design was confirmed by constructing sections of the lizard body in our Thornton factory. At this stage we brainstormed the creative knowledge of our staff to come up with some unique activities and never before seen ideas.

Jungle Park Whiteman Edge

This project is one of our favourites :) We were contacted in September 2016 with an idea to create a 7m tower which would stand as the centre piece of a new Jungle Themed Playground in Western Australia in a Stockland development at Whiteman Edge, Brabham. The architects were open to ideas and suggestions as to how we could create the central tower which needed to prevent access on the outside of the net and also avoid falling down through the middle. A number of iterations were modelled and eventually a design was approved which used polished stainless steel rings with integrated rubber landing platforms on three levels. Two access ports are included in the design to enable access from ground level and also from a mid level. The net fabrication was intense but our highly skilled team created the support rings, fabricated the nets and the fit was millimetre perfect.

Along with the central tower we also designed some bridging elements using our large diameter ‘Jungle Rope.’ The end caps on this were also polished stainless steel. Net elements from ground up to various decks were part of our scope and all the fittings were supplied for the local fabricator to include in their structural work. It all went together really well and as can be seen from the images, the final result is an absolute cracker.

Pasterfield Sports Complex

Part of a $15M new development funded primarily from developer contributions, Pasterfield Sports Complex is within the Lake Macquarie Council area and has been designed to provide a recreational facility for the growing Cameron Park area of the city.

Kaebel Leisure was invited to create a flagship centre piece play structure based upon some provisional concepts. The process began in mid 2017 with a final commission being awarded in March 2018. To date this is the biggest single structure we have manufactured bringing together many years of experience and creativity.
