Outback Rigging Rise To The University Challenge

Outback Rigging are proud to have been involved in a high-profile event at Keble College in Oxford, where an exhibition was held to mark 40 years of co-education and the celebration of the College’s 150th Anniversary. The exhibition promoted the rich diversity in terms of different genders, ethnicities, disabilities, socio-economic backgrounds and LGBTQ+ communities that have walked the corridors of Keble College.

Professional photographer Fran Monks captured portraits of 28 individuals including alumni, undergraduate and graduate students, current and former staff and fellows of Keble College.

The individuals were nominated by their peers, because they have made or are making a positive difference to Keble, the University and the world.

Outback rigging were commissioned by Jenny Tudge, the Director of Development at Keble College, to display these images within their hall.

Outback Rigging faced the challenge of placing modern equipment into an old building, by formulating a modern yet sympathetic design, in order to complement and protect the hall’s listed interior. Triple E Unibeams were used for their structural integrity and low profile; adding a discrete modern look in contrast to the classic Victorian dining hall. Outback were able to create the impression that the images were floating within the hall, which was achieved using black steel wire rope assemblies.

Director of Development, Jenny Tudge gave her “Sincere thanks to Stuart Cooper and his team at Outback Rigging for their professionalism and attention to detail”. Outback Rigging are proud of the work they have produced and give their gratitude to Keble College for selecting them to help celebrate this memorable event.
