Client: Main Roads WA, Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation
Product: OmniGrip Re-surface
The Kids Bridge was designed to create a pedestrian link between the Perth Children’s Hospital and Kings Park facilitating access to WA’s premier parkland, a place for relaxation and reflection for hospital staff, patients and visitors. The bridge extends over the tree canopy, providing a tree top walk and viewing platform across the park towards the city.
The designers wanted a highly colourful structure reflective of the colourful Perth Children’s Hospital logo with visual aspects that change as users move across or underneath the twisting forms.
Our local expert applicator liaised closely with the designers, Main Roads WA and the builders to provide a solution. OmniGrip Resurface was selected for the shared pathway. We worked closely together with our suppliers and the designers to specifically manufacture the correct colours for the project. OmniGrip worked closely with Anti-Skid to select and supply required coloured Australian Glass.
OmniGrip Re-Surface is not only economical and ensures durable slip resistance for users but is also aesthetically pleasing, and in harmony with the surrounding environment. Omnigrip Re-Surface will continue to be a dynamic feature for many years to come with minimal maintenance requirements for the Perth Children’s Hospital.
