The brief was to provide an in-ground facility to accommodate a sculpture (commissioned separately), to commemorate the contribution made by the Bomber Crews during the Second World War.  The sculpture consists of a stainless steel tower 16 metre high with a powerful floodlight positioned below the sculpture that shines up the tower, simulating a searchlight.  



Photographs and film were requested as the sculpture was manufactured in New Zealand before being transported to Australia, enabling Project Coordination to work out how it was to be assembled in advance.  The tower involved a complex installation process and detailed coordination by the project team.
