Project Overview

Hall Wines, located in St. Helena, California, is one of the oldest vineyards in the Napa Valley. A recent redesign of the tasting room and the visitor ’s center blends modern design with the vintage appeal of the old winery. Platipus Tree Anchoring Systems were used in planting several varieties of native trees around the 128 acre property. Using subsurface anchors around the rootballs eliminated hazards such as guy wires and stakes assuring guests a safe tour of the beautiful grounds.

Project Overview

Denver Union Station is a beautifully restored historic train station located in the present day LoDo district of the Mile High City. Originally opened in 1881, the Station has experienced several extensive renovations, the most recent commencing in 2012.

When the latest revival of the old building was completed in 2014, the Station would house not only the main rail station for the city but also a central bus hub and a light rail stop. Restaurants, retail space and the Crawford Hotel help to make Denver Union Station a destination in itself; much more than just a transportation center.

The installation of Platipus Tree Anchoring Systems was an easy and efficient way to provide the stability and security needed for newly planted trees. Using subsurface anchors around the rootballs assured the safety of the many pedestrians visiting Denver Union Station without distracting from the charm of the landscape plan.

Project Overview

Located in the downtown Dallas Arts District, HALL Arts is a LEED Gold mixed-use urban development designed to integrate restaurant, retail, and commercial office spaces with an emphasis on open green space. The development also includes the “Texas ArtWalk,” an outdoor sculpture garden bridging Flora St. and Ross Ave.

The Office of James Burnett (OJB) features trees throughout the development on rooftop gardens and terraces to provide a working livable environment. The planting of the trees on-structure could only be stabilized with the use of the Platipus Deadman Fixing System by creating anchoring points below the rootball using concrete sleepers. The streetscape surrounding the development was also improved by street trees anchored with the Platipus Rootball Fixing System allowing for a safe and aesthetically pleasing landscape.

Project Overview

One La Jolla Center is a 15 story LEED Gold business building that completes the La Jolla Center “superblock”. The building offers 360 degree views from all floors, an onsite café, smart car charging stations and an outside landscaped workspace.

The outside workspace connects the building and an adjacent multilevel parking structure. In this area 30′ palms were secured, over structure, using the Platipus Deadman 4 Leg System with stainless steel tendon for permanent anchoring. The system removed the need for any above ground hazards (wood bracing) providing safety and stability while offering an instant “finished” appearance.

Project Overview

The Commons is a 4.2-acre green space located in downtown Minneapolis adjacent to US Bank Stadium. The park, funded by public and private contributions, opened in 2016 and is designed to accommodate large numbers of Minnesota Vikings fans on game day, children playing or a place for nearby city employees to enjoy lunch.

Based on a large amount of expected pedestrian traffic, the landscape design specified the Platipus Rootball Fixing System. This system was the perfect solution to provide tree stabilization without unsightly above-ground guys while ensuring the safety of all those enjoying the park.
