Work or play?
Not all structural engineering projects are high rise buildings and warehouses! Although we love these too, our Sydney office has recently been designing water slides. At Indesco, we pride ourselves on challenges big and small, and this unique project allowed our engineers to showcase their versatility in design.
Indesco was commissioned to produce structural designs for a 17.5m waterslide tower opening in Bullsbrook, WA late 2019. The project is nearing completion as the waterslide tower at Perth’s Outback Splash; which will feature both raft slides and speed slides; is currently under construction and due to open next month.
Our engineers provided structural design for the tower foundations, concrete slab and certification for the steel structure, which will be the newest addition to the WA water park. The new waterslide will open just in time for the school holidays, perfect for kids to stay cool during summer and enjoy a fun family day out. Needless to say, there have been plenty of volunteers for site inspections!
