Iceworks Design select Aureol and Astral for Visitors' Centre

Rivercity Motorway is the North South Bypass Tunnel Project - a massive undertaking which, upon completion will run for 5.8km from Woolloongabba to Bowen Hills and include dual twin lane tunnels, approximately 4.8km in length underneath the city of Brisbane.

This vital piece of infrastructure will be the longest and most technologically advanced tunnel in Australia.

The Project is managed by Rivercity Motorway Services with Leighton Contractors & Baulderstone Hornibrook Bilfinger Berger Joint Venture undertaking the construction.

Keeping the public informed and updated about the project is an important part of the process and design company Iceworks Design Pty Ltd completed a conceptual design project for a visitors' centre and mobile education unit for the initial project pitch.

Rivercity Motorway were successful and Iceworks Design staff started work on the centre itself. Their team undertook a mammoth task in a short timeframe, from first concept sketch to finished centre, of a mere 7 weeks.

All design and delivery of elements including graphical content, set pieces and technology installation was managed by the Iceworks team. The lighting system is controlled by a Pharos LPC1 unit with LSC Eplates, LSC EPRO Dimmer Rack with Eutrac lighting tracks and monopoints.

"The lights we selected are 150W Aureol Fresco Floods, Aureol Beamshapers, Astral Floods and Astral Fresnels. The overall project has been very successful with positive feedback from our client, Brisbane City Council and the media. Special thanks to David Nemeth (Production Shop-Brisbane) for great sales support", said Jason Raft of Iceworks Design.

The Rivercity Motorway Visitors' Centre is located at Kangaroo Point and provides access to the latest concept designs, project website, models of the route and interactive video displays.
