Our mandate was to install a total of 32 lights on a 180-foot-high crane that could be controlled remotely through a web interface without altering the crane’s integrity or daytime operation – a significant restriction considering the nature of our work. We also had to design a custom-made hanging system for lamps as well as a secure electrical distribution system.
We enjoyed participating in this extraordinary project in downtown Montreal, which took place during the winter of 2020-2021. NRG Management has relied on IC Events’ expertise to create a more dynamic architectural installation and add visibility to this giant steel structure.
Controlled from a smartphone, the lighting effects matched different events. Christmas, Valentine’s Day, HABS victory – this crane brightened up the intersection of McGill and René-Lévesque for a whole winter.
