Virgin Lounge, Perth Airport

Services: Installation

Client: Virgin Australia

Cost: $1.6M

Location: Perth, WA

The new Virgin Lounge was part of the expansion of the Perth international airport to include domestic flight facilities. The design features a distinctive ceiling with a unique layout and unusual curvatures that impacted on the lighting products Fredon supplied. Fredon arranged for the 35km of LED extrusion to be pre-bent at the correct radii by the lighting supplier so that it would meet design requirements. It also allows personalised lighting requirements where practicable.

To ensure the tight project deadlines were met, and to avoid disruption of existing services, Fredon developed a program and scope of works that arranged for workers to work longer hours, weekends and night shift.
