Today Platipus officially celebrates our 40th birthday. We would like to say thank you to all of our customers and employees who have supported us over the past 4 decades. We look forward to working with you for many more years to come.
Project Spotlight: Located in the heart of downtown Dallas, the Klyde Warren Park is a combination of a green roof, bridge and tunnel positioned on top of the Woodall Rodgers Freeway. In order to support a deck over the 200 foot wide freeway, this unique greenspace was constructed using geo-foam and engineered lightweight soil. By designing the deck with trenches formed between the structural beams, trees were given room to grow and only required temporary stabilization for the initial planting period. Platipus Tree Anchoring Systems provided the needed support and eliminated tree staking allowing for a safe and sustainable landscape.
Today we are proud to celebrate National Engineering Day and how engineering can #ImproveLives. This may be creating a solar park to generate clean renewable energy and reduce the effects of climate change, designing pipeline infrastructure to deliver valuable resources to communities, constructing resilient flood defences to protect towns or simply designing attractive accessible landscapes to improve physical/mental health and well-being.
Using our innovative ground anchoring solutions we are pleased raise public awareness of how engineers, from all industry sectors, make a difference in the world.
Project Spotlight: Jane’s Lane, Klyde Warren Park: A 25-foot wide avenue of Red Oaks with granite pathway open for jogging or strolling is lined with soft lighting and wood benches.
