Our Lady of Mercy College is a Catholic school for senior girls in Parramatta. The eastern facade facing the school has a green wall providing natural shading and a cooling effect to windows with fixed aluminium louvres above giving horizontal shading.
The design of the building incorporates a high level of sustainability and the eastern facade green walls were used in conjunction with overhead aluminium louvres to provide shade and natural ventilation to the building interior. The 470 square metre green wall cable trellis has become a major feature of the campus and is enjoyed by the whole school community. The green wall cable trellis panels consist of AGS4c X-TEND mesh infill panels with a cable border.
