One of the nicest features of the 2018 Commonwealth Games Village is the Village Heart, a white sculpture with vertical fountain. This original sculpture was modelled on the Natural Arch in the nearby Numinbah Valley behind the Gold Coast, where water cascades down the limestone and glow worms appear at night.
Twelve Acme Stage PAR 400 Zoom IP fixtures were strategically positioned around the sculpture to bring it to life with beautiful saturated colours and purposely programmed lighting schemes, with the green and gold theme being one of the most popular.
The whole Commonwealth Games Village project was guided by environmentally sustainable design principles, encompassing environmental, social and economic initiatives and received a full 6 Leaf Enviro Development Mixed Use accreditation form the Urban Development Institute of Australia for its ecosystems, waste, energy, water, materials and community. The Parklands project has also achieved a 6 Green Star Communities pilot rating from the Green Building Council Australia, the equivalent to “World Leadership” in sustainability.
The 2018 Commonwealth Games were a great success, with Australia topping the medal table for the fourth time in the past five Commonwealth Games, winning 80 gold medals and 189 medals in total.
Huge congratulations to all the athletes representing Australia! Both teams at ULA Group and Elite Event Technology are very proud that we could have been a part of this amazing event!
