My role at Tri-Point Rigging Services is…
Creating 3D Renders and Technical Drawings of Truss, Rigging, Scaffolding and Staging Systems.
When I was a kid I wanted to be…
I didn’t have big dreams when I was a kid but in the 90s I came across a video tape of a futuristic looking drawing program that could produce 3D images from green lines at the local library. It looked so cool I had to give it a shot.
The best advice I have ever been given is…
Don’t make decisions without eating first.
People often describe me as…
Well-read and really obnoxious about it.
My favourite movie of all time is…
Probably the Grand Budapest Hotel, or maybe Blade Runner 1982.
My favourite artist/band of all time is…
The Memphis Group, they invented the 80s.
Three people I wish I could invite to dinner are…
William Shatner as Captain Kirk, Richard Dean Anderson as Macgyver and Ridly Scott.
If I was an animal I would be a…
My wife says I would be a cat, read into that what you will.
Most people don’t know that I…
I write a lot and I make a pretty mean calzone.
The three things I can’t live without are…
My wife, my whiteboard and the internet.
The strangest thing to happen on one of my projects…
I did some structural work on the elevator cores for Sydney Uni. A crane collapsed and fell right on top of our formwork! Luckily no one was around when it fell but there is a nice picture somewhere of a crane sticking though something I designed.
The worst thing to happen on one of my projects was…
I guess it was the time I was working in a team producing 20 tonnes of steel for a structural platform on an oil rig. It needed to be helicoptered in from shore. The steel didn’t meet their requirements so they dumped the entire load into the sea. Eek! They said it was cheaper to remake it than to helicopter it back… I would love to see there calculation on that one.

In 2015, Tri-Point were lucky enough to be featured in, U.S-based, Mobile Production Monthly’s industry magazine. The segment was featured in Volume 7, Issue 6 of the publication and focused primarily on the news of Tri-Point bringing the much-loved StageCo brand to Australia, in the form of 20m and 25m steel roof systems to suit touring concerts and outdoor festivals nationwide. Check out the article below:
Back in March, Tri-Point were onto Day 3 of the stage build for the Rolling Stones concert at the Adelaide Oval in South Australia, when the very sad news came through that L’Wren Scott had passed away in the USA.
As a result, the Rolling Stones tour was postponed, and just as soon as the roof has been raised to trim height, the boys commenced dismantle, and we all headed back home.
After Mick Jagger’s very tragic loss, it was unclear if the Stones would come back to complete their highly anticipated tour Down Under.
However, it has now confirmed that the Rolling Stones have rescheduled the dates and venues for the postponed Australian and New Zealand leg of the ’14 On Fire’ Tour.
According to Frontier Touring’s press release, the rescheduling of the tour to October/November has also allowed for two additional concerts to be added to the tour – one at Perth Arena on Saturday 1 November 2014 and the other at Hope Estate in the Hunter Valley on Saturday 15 November 2014.
Ticket holders who are able to attend the rescheduled dates need take no action, their existing ticket will remain valid and their location within the venue will remain unchanged.
Pre-sale tickets for the new Perth and Hunter Valley shows are available via www.frontiertouring.com/rollingstones. Head to the site for further details.
Special guests have also been confirmed as rock legends Jimmy Barnes for the Adelaide show and the Hunters & Collectors for the Auckland show. Special guests will also be shortly announced for the Hanging Rock and Hunter Valley concerts.
Tri-Point Rigging Services brings the much-loved StageCo© brand to Australia’s Festival & Events Industry.
Premier staging & rigging company, Tri-Point Rigging Services, are pleased to announce the arrival of the world renowned StageCo© brand in the Australian festival and events market. Based out of Sydney, and also operating locally in Melbourne and the Gold Coast, Tri-Point are now stocking roof systems from the StageCo© Classics range, enabling them to offer their customers 20m and 25m heavy duty steel roof systems – Australia wide – from this much loved and trusted brand.
With staging and touring in their blood, the three Tri-Point Directors have built StageCo© products in Australia and internationally since the 1980’s. Warren Jones has toured extensively with four U2 world tours, and Graeme Dew has toured as head of staging for Dave Matthews Band, Metallica and Linkin Park all over the USA. Father and son, Graeme and Reg Dew, have been touring StageCo© systems internationally for two generations. Our company Directors are still working hands on from design through to delivery, and are supported by our highly experienced crew, many of whom have also worked internationally as StageCo© touring riggers.
“The StageCo© systems are a great new addition to our, already strong, inventory of staging. Now we can provide our clients with anything from a 6m to a 25m clear span roof, and everything in between. StageCo© are, without a doubt, the best staging company in the Northern Hemisphere and we are absolutely thrilled to be bringing the brand to Australia.” says Victoria Garside, Tri-Point’s Staging Manager.
