Flames of the Forest gets a refurb including new technology
General manager Natalie Johnson said the Flames of the Forest team spent 10 days immersed in the rainforest to transform the venue.
“It’s always a daunting task refurbishing in the rainforest, particularly given we had to completely gut the venue of the existing chandeliers, lighting rigs, crystal curtains and silk lining before we could even proceed with building all the new fixtures,” she said.
“The entire process was an exceptional team effort, with the construction of six new, custom-designed chandeliers whose crystals appear to float in mid-air, the design and creation of new crystal curtaining with bud light feature globes and a full installation of new, state-of-the-art lighting.
“Each chandelier has its own, colour-changing LED fixture and the space now features several intelligent fixtures creating a fantastic dancefloor which also has the capability to project company logos for that extra bit of branding.”
The installation of new, flowing black silk into the ceiling completed the refurbishment process, with the challenge of undertaking such a massive makeover in an outdoor rainforest setting presenting plenty of challenges.
“Unlike refurbishing a normal venue, we had to deal with the tropical heat, rain, mozzies, bugs, spiders and even a curious monitor lizard keen to see what all the fuss was about, in a remote location with no mobile phone reception to get the job done,” Johnson said.
“But the results were well worth it, with the new look providing a mesmerising element to the stunning rainforest backdrop.”
