During the early work stage of Melbourne’s new train tunnels, an event was scheduled at the development site of Town Hall Station as part of White Night. Now in its sixth year, White Night illuminates many different areas of Melbourne with art installations and various events drawing a crowd of around 600,000. John Holland Group, the team responsible for managing the excavation site, were faced with a dilemma, Town Hall Station was currently a 22-meter hole in the ground. The government wanted said hole handed over to White Night for the weekend with excavation resuming the following Monday. Enter Cuckoo, your friendly neighborhood hole managers.
Due to tight time frames for both companies, handover had to be as smooth as possible, and above all, everything had to be safe. John Holland Group was struggling to understand the requirements of the event organiser, David Atkins Enterprises, who manage the delivery of the White Night event. Cuckoo were enlisted as compliance and safety experts, a role well suited thanks to our event-based knowledge.
