TIS has been involved in the design, construction and ongoing maintenance of some of Brisbane’s most iconic and much loved water features and fountains including the Emma Miller Fountain, the historic 10 metre high Mooney Memorial fountain, first constructed in 1877 at the intersection of what is now Queen & Eagle streets, and the China Town Mall Fountain.
At a cost of $4.8 billion, Airport Link is Australia’s largest ever infrastructure project. TIS were awarded the challenging contract to complete the rainwater harvesting, pumping, irrigation and control system to maintain the impressive 155 metre long and 10 metre high Greenwall at the Toombul tunnel entry/exit. This is the largest Greenwall in Australia. This challenging project required TIS’s significant project and construction expertise to complete the job on time and on budget. The project involved:
Due to the unique nature of the project and because of the varying sun exposure and air flows over each section of the wall very specific watering of the Northern/Southern/Upper/Lower sections of the greenwall were required. Working closely with the client TIS has provided a water efficient system capable of sustaining the greenwall in first class condition in a demanding environment.
The TIS team of certified designers, experienced installers and technicians can advise on all stages of your water feature project and can assist with a structured maintenance program ensuring trouble free continuity of operation.
