Jan22686 F eFbe2b22523386 9 Having gained extensive experience in the industry, Michael “Nitrox” Petrani founded Diversity Rigging & Entertainment Services Pty Ltd in 1997, which is a registered business specialising in the management of rigging and technical requirements for clients within the entertainment industry. Rigging for events of all sizes, from smaller functions to stadium shows, the company offers a range of services. These include rigging consultancy and design, calculations for weight loading and distribution, CAD rigging design prepared for consulting engineers, Vectorworks CAD services, theatrical and performer wire flying, and more. The company also offers manufacturing services such as welding, manual lathe and milling, pipe notching, general fabrication engineering, entertainment equipment repairs, venue installation services, and more. With an extensive range of rigging equipment and outdoor structures, Diversity Rigging can help with almost anything a client may need. The company understands the varied needs of the entertainment industry and aims to meet these needs. As a result, it is able to manage full production requirements or individual aspects of production. Nitrox and his team pride themselves on their ability to take on any project, even the most unusual and complicated. An example of a big project the Diversity Rigging team has worked on is the transformation of Marvel Stadium from hosting an Australian Football League match to a basketball court for the Australian Boomers vs USA game. After three months of design working with an engineer to prepare the show based on the requested production values, the project was finally approved by the engineer. Nitrox and his team worked tirelessly for four days with over 320 contractors to rig 102,143kg of weight from the roof, using F45 5 Chord and F34P Box Global Truss. This weight included the main LED scoreboard and audio cable management. The event ended up being a huge success, with over 103,000 basketball fans attending over the two nights the games were hosted, which happened to be the biggest crowds for basketball games in Australia at the time. No strangers to extreme rigging in the entertainment industry, Diversity Rigging & Entertainment Services Pty Ltd is a leader in its field. With a team of 26 individuals bringing different skills and experience to the team, the company is 2023’s winner of Best Rigging Design and Consultancy Firm in the Australian Enterprise Awards. The future is compelling for Diversity Rigging as they continue to take on and execute impressive rigging projects.
