Belgium - Cordeel knows how to finish projects with a flourish. The Belgian construction company demonstrated this in convincing fashion recently when it completed the Temse shipyard dry dock headquarters. After finishing the construction of the building at ground level, Cordeel’s engineers hoisted the 1,200 ton still and glass megastructure into its final position where it now perches majestically 20mabove the shipyard.
For the inauguration of this distinctive building, CREATE.eu and Panama Group were brought on board to transform the space around the dry dock into a one-off Cirque du Soleil-style show for Cordeel's 1,600 employees. Instrumental in creating this transformation was a collection of over 50 Chauvet Professional fixtures that included eight COLORado Panel Q40 units, eight Maverick MK2 Washes, 24 Rogue R2 Washes, four Rogue R3 Washes and 12 Ovation E-260WW ellipsoidals, all controlled by a ChamSys MagicQ MQ500 Stadium console.
With three temporarily constructed tents housing a variety of circus performances, in addition to dining and networking activities, the CREATE.eu team were tasked with installing lighting throughout multiple locations to serve a variety of purposes.
In the main entrance tent, where guests were treated to numerous performances and dances, the team hung the Maverick MK2 Wash fixtures in a symmetrical formation from centrally positioned trussing.
To provide accurate and clear highlighting of the performers on the stage, CREATE.eu relied on the 230W Ovation E-260WW ellipsoidals to act as spotlighting elements.
In the neighbouring spectacle tent, where guests were treated to further performances in a more relaxed ambience, a combination of Rogue R2 and R3 wash fixtures served to provide both general lighting and additional spot lighting.
Positioning the COLORado Panel Q40 intermittently over the building’s impressive 100m length, CREATE.eu was able to utilise the fixture’s IP65-rated 40 15 W RGBW LEDs and adjustable beam angle to create f edge-to-edge colour mixing of the building's facade.
