Pūkeko Blue project managed and provided the concept leader for this innovative custom-built eco-exhibition space on wheels.
A challenging project that involved fundraising 3/4 million dollars of external funding, managing a superb team of up to 30 different contractors involved in the design and build, and commissioning, and completing the entire project in under 18 months from start to finish.
A core creative team of designers, fabricators and coach builders lead by Bettina Anderson developed a host of on-board innovative exhibits and green-features. Described as part cell-phone and part swiss-army knife the RIG boasts a satellite internet connection, video conferencing facilities, virtual reality touchscreen exhibits and video microscope - along with more traditional exhibits like a hands-on erosion table and native biodiversity dioramas.
