Having successfully completed the multi-million dollar Grand Pavilion for Major Projects Victoria and Multiplex, Oasis Tension Structures has the resources to undertake projects of any size and complexity.
Oasis is a multi-award winning business and is the current ACASPA 2011 Overall Winner. Oasis also holds the IFAI 2011 Outstanding Achievement Award for tension structures less than 600sq.m. These, together with numerous other awards, are testament of Oasis's commitment to excellence over a journey lasting many years which continues today.
Interestingly, the history of Oasis can be traced back to its founder, Darryl Thomson, when more than thirty years ago as a young engineer he set out to develop the application and methodology for the use of shade fabric in tensile structures. He achieved great success developing an industry that spawned the everyday use of shade fabric with offshore processing and hardware store product lines that is part of the industry today.
But his heart lay elsewhere; his interests lay in applying his knowledge to producing unique designs to suit specific architectural, recreational and industrial applications. Oasis Tension Structures was founded in 1992 as one of five divisions within Gale Australia. Oasis commenced fabrication of shade sails in 1992 and has produced more than 10,000 since that time.
In 1995 Darryl purchased the division and along with business partner and fellow civil engineer, Peter Byrne, founded Oasis Tension Structures (Australia) Pty Ltd in 1996.
Since that time Oasis Tension Structures has continued its growth and has a developed a dedicated professional team of designers and managers who can assist with all aspects of tensile engineering from conceptual design through to construction and maintenance.
Oasis has undertaken work throughout Australia and has the flexibility and experience to work on international projects in locations including the United Kingdom, North America, South East Asia and the Middle East.
Tensile engineering is still a young and vibrant industry exploiting the advent of new materials, modern fabric technology and associated engineering techniques.
From its beginnings working with knitted shade fabrics, we have developed our experience and expertise and can now offer structures fabricated from fully coated woven materials such as PVC coated polyester weave and PTFE coated glass weave fabrics.
Oasis is dedicated to develop our ability to offer new forms, new materials and new solutions in tensile engineering. We have developed expertise to offer insulated roof structures incorporating insulation blankets and captured air pockets to provide tensile roofs with excellent thermal performance and we have developed our capacity with ETFE films to offer pillow structures.
Expertise: Oasis specialise in the Design and Construction of tension membrane structures.
From tensile umbrellas to the largest free form structure in Australia, Oasis has the ability to offer a complete range of shade fabric structure solutions to the commercial market.
Our professional staff has the expertise and ability to offer service and advice through all stages of a project starting with concept development and continuing through to detailed design and documentation, procurement and fabrication and finally installation for shade projects of all sizes.
Our experience with a variety of materials means we can tailor solutions to suit your requirements and your budget.
