Enhancing green front buildings is not only a good idea but also a natural way to control the temperature and reduce energy consumption. But first you need to know a lot about the structures needed to protect these great environmental plants.
For amazing results, cutting the stone takes a carefully thought-out frame of wire and rods, combined with plant knowledge to grow and develop everything.
The most well-known Australian company is Tensile Design and Construct. He is in charge of many of Australia’s most famous biophysics projects, including the Platinum Tower in Melbourne and the Central Park covered by the leaves of Sydney.
The original greenery of Central Park includes more than 15 miles[15 km]of iron rods and rods supporting more than 2,500 twigs and vines, making it an unforgettable experience.

Not surprisingly, this work attracted the attention of other large company owners. A.D. In 2020, the company was called upon to build a new lion enclosure at the Taronga Zoo, with a clear demand for strength and an unwavering desire for a better view and construction experience.
Founder Peter Botero Tensile founded 11 years ago and now employs 20 people, with offices in Sydney and Melbourne, both from Perth to Oakland.
Tennesil, in partnership with renowned Swiss architecture company Jacob Ropp Systems, offers the best of European products for the Aussie market, including the most versatile web and green network systems.
In addition to utilizing the best products, Bottero offers industry-leading solutions in three key areas: Obstacles and Failures Protection, Art and Modern Projects and, of course, green landscaping and hanging gardens.
Adapted solutions should take into account factors such as light, wind and plants
The company works with customers, primarily architects and government agencies, to provide tailored solutions to green plants, taking into account factors such as light and wind, plant selection and expected results, such as continuous maintenance.

“When things go wrong, we do our job right,” Botero said. “When you can’t see what we’re doing because it’s covered in vegetation.”
Despite the obvious visual benefits, Bottero recognizes the need for strong business to take on green facial features. He says one of the biggest incentives is that green walls have improved thermal performance – many show a 300 percent improvement over conventional glass-window exterior. It is a measure of strength and durability that goes hand in hand with beauty.
“Simple things like tropical island effects; Central Park does nothing by itself but if you start throwing two buildings like this close together you will start to benefit.
Clients still include Lendlease, Multiplex, Junglefy, Fytogreen and most Australian Capital Council.
The company wants to make plant research a big part of the business and make the most of the built environment by eliminating the trap of research-based practices.
There are pitfalls and you need to know how to avoid them
In Australia, it has been a challenge to keep living and well-growing plants hanging from the Melbourne CH2 building in front of the first greenhouse, and there is ample evidence of great ambitions.
You need good partners to get started
But according to Botero, Tensile now has a wide range of expertise in Australia in this regard, partly due to its ongoing collaboration with leading industry experts and the University of Melbourne’s Department of Vegetation.
The Central Park Project has a downward spiral of learning. There was an unexpected lesson about how plants could survive and how it affected their load and structure, says Peter.
“First of all, we are a structural company. We asked. Nobody knows, so we stuck the plants in the wind tunnel to find out. ”
As far as I know, we are the only company in the world that has that information. Therefore, our journey through the plant part of things is only a continuous lesson.
“We’ve been through a lot of projects, and now we’re at an exciting point where we can better understand what works and what doesn’t,” he said.
“There is an issue with all kinds of green infrastructure. A green face or a green wall or a green roof are all there or you can get the best by combining them all. Of all things. And that’s great.”
