The entrance building, of the Museum, is the original 10 EFTS Guardhouse, relocated from the airport main gate. It has been refurbished and now houses the Museum entrance and giftshop. The walls are still clad in the original corrugated iron, the windows are those fitted in 1941 and the floor is also the original material. The asbestos roof has been replaced and 60 years of internal modifications removed. A second building has been constructed in the style of the Barracks buildings in which trainees and instructors lived. It houses a 38 seat theatre and a range of exhibits.
Barbizon Australia was contracted to 100% relight of 2500 sq meter display hanger. Equipment used included:
- Selecon PL1
- Selecon Accent Display Spot
- Selecon Wing LED Wall Wash
- BBS Force V LED Backend for ETC 70deg lens
Barbizon also provided complete replacement of the lighting in the gallery spaces and gift shop using Selecon Wing LED Wall Wash + Philips MR16 10w LEDs.
The client was also very pleased that once the gift shop lighting was updated their sales figures show 50% increase since gift shop relight, just proving that quality lighting can help in retail situations.
