NBC – Sochi Winter Olympics 2014
Firecracker were commissioned by Ruby J for a second time to create a home from home for the NBC team in the mountains in Sochi. Our challenge this time was to fit 450 delegates into a room that only had floor space for two-thirds of that number.
To overcome this we designed and engineered a bespoke mezzanine system that could be built on location in less than a day. With only a 2 week build time in the workshop, we waved goodbye to 5no. 40’ shipping containers at the start of October. Our team on the ground met these in February and in a little under 3 days we had converted a bare, bland hotel conference room to be completely unrecognisable. Bars, furniture and columns with copper and wenge details satisfied the brief to create a gentlemen’s club with a modern twist.
