About this Project

Ellen DeGeneres blazed into Sydney in 2013, and broadcast her show to a live audience from Fleet Steps at The Botanical Gardens. Tri-Point was asked to provide an underwater scaffold to support contestants for her game show ‘Know or Go’. When members of the audience got a question wrong, Ellen released a trap door, and the contestants were dunked into the water at Sydney Harbour.

Using barges, underwater divers, a shark spotter, and our event style scaffolding with alloy box truss bridging the pieces, the Tri-Point crew, headed up by director Warren Jones, had a great time building the gag, and watching as the surprised contestants got dripping wet!

About this Project

Big Kahuna Imagineering came to us with a very interesting brief – to turn the world-famous Bondi Icebergs pool into a giant esky for a Jim Beam brand activation.

Tri-Point provided scaffolding, rigging, counterweight and design support to suit the activation of oversized Jim Beam cans, giant blocks of ice and other special effects trickery required to pull of the job. 

We love being challenged with imaginative scenarios requiring invisible rigging solutions, they’re our favourite kinds of jobs! Thanks to the crew at Big Kahuna for such an awesome project.

About this Project

Tri-Point were asked to create screen supports for some big screens down at Darling Harbour in Sydney during the Rugby World Cup 2012. Not one, not two, but three screens were joined together and constructed using our heavy duty alloy box truss with chain motors to lift the screens into place.

The entire structure was built on a barge offsite. It was then travelled to site so that many thousands of people could enjoy the games live at Darling Harbour.

About this Project

Tri-Point worked with Brisbane Festival on their “Santos City of Light” program for 2 consecutive years; 2011 and 2012. Each time, enormous scaffold supports were required for laser, lighting and technical support during the festival. Using our event-style scaffolding, we built the structures offsite with cranes onto a barge, and then the entire set up was manoevred into place. Many thanks to Tri-Point Director, Graeme Dew, and his team of hard working scaffolders who managed the project from design through to implementation.
