ProDesign Lighting was recently commissioned by BHP to provide event management, logistical support and lighting consultancy for the official opening of Mining Area C in the Pilbara.

The official opening event of BHP’s new Mining Area C also included a celebratory luncheon for 208 people.

ProDesign was responsible for lighting design, stage design, set design, draping, audio design, technical and logistical coordination, and implementation.

ProDesign transformed the mine site into a marquee complete with Australian bush theming and distinctive lighting techniques.

Kevin Harris of ProDesign Lighting worked with local PR consultant Porter Novelli, which was contracted to coordinate the event, along with a range of other suppliers to manufacture special stage sets for the official opening and celebratory lunch.

ProDesign also helped with the minutiae of the event including generator, power distribution and structural implementation.
