A pergola in Tokai Estate’s courtyard

Tensile Cables has supplied the cables for a large pergola in Tokai Estate’s outdoor courtyard.

Tokai Estate is a luxurious retirement village in the Western Cape. It boasts breathtaking views of Constantiaberg, Silvermine Nature Reserve and Table Mountain and is a first-class healthcare facility with top security, entertainment and cultural enrichment. It has five different property types, a coffee shop and restaurant, a gym with an indoor heated swimming pool, a library and more.

The project is still in its infancy. On completion, the steel pillars in the courtyard will have been painted, and creepers will be planted which will grow over the structure to create shade. The cables act as a trellis supporting the greenery, and a beautiful green roof will be the result.

Watch this space for an updated photo story of the finished installation.

Tensile Cables is often involved in project such as these. See Noordhoek Pergolas and Green Point Park Pergolas for other projects like this.
