Perth’s Central Park goes Red for MS week

Posted on Wednesday, June 17th, 2009

Perth’s Concert & Corporate Productions has been helping the MS Society of WA increase public awareness of this disabling neurological condition that affects around 18,000 Australians. As part of MS week CCP were asked to light up Perth’s tallest office tower Central Park.

The building, completed in 1992, stands 224m to the peak of the spire. The challenge of lighting this prominent landmark was handled by CCP’s Sean McKernan for the second year.

“We tried to do something different this year to make the building stand out even more than last year,” explained Sean. “The spire was not prominent last year so this year we decided to install Pro Shop LED Honeycomb 72’s up the spire for added effect.”

CCP installed twenty Honeycomb 72 fixtures up the 12m spire and these were focused straight out to allow for 360 degree viewing and visible from up to 30km away. Adding extra colour to the base of the spire and lower level support beams are sixteen Kupo 575w Arc MultiPARs and four Studio Due CityColor 2500w.

“The HC72’s and MultiPARs are awesome and we use them a lot, we have custom Dichroics made for the MultiPARs to prevent gel burning out,” remarked Sean.
