PF assist Prospects Learning Foundation launch new college

   On 5th December 2012, PF Events supplied all equipment and technical management required for the Prospects Learning Foundation's (http://www.prospectslf.co.uk) grand opening of their newest college in Basildon, Essex. The state-of-the art facility for a wide range of different apprenticeships includes a 35-seater auditorium, nine classrooms, an open study zone, a learning resource centre and a large number of workshops.

   When guests arrived at the college, they were greeted with stunning architectural lighting on the front and side of the building; the front being washed in a blue and the side in yellow. PF also installed some white architectural lighting at the rear of the building as well as a multi-beam search light at each end of the building to give a 'wow factor' to the event as people arrived. The entrance was highlighted with two flambeaxs.

   The drinks reception area is usually used as a canteen at the college. The room had to be lit up to give some warmth to the space. PF achieved this by uplighting the walls and doing a patterned gobo wash on the ceiling.

   For the main event space, PF supplied a stage and stage set suitable for the event, with a 6K projector rear projecting onto a 8'9" x 4'11" screen. LED battens were utilised to provide different lighting states to the stage set at different points of the event. After all the speeches, a countdown led to the climax of the event which involved a confetti canon being set off, an audio sting and a lighting sting with two moving head lights.
