Andrew Wright and the Shockwave Marine team have responded in a very timely and professional manner to meet an exacting brief from Perth Festival at very short notice.
Their brief was to provide 11 light craft with in-built speakers for the Perth Festival- commissioned performance series Five Short Blasts.
The team made rapid progress and the process was very smooth from brief to quote negotiation, terms and conditions, and purchase orders. Our Festival production team felt very confident throughout, thanks to regular progress calls and immediate alerts if something could potentially affect schedules.
We are impressed by Shockwave Marine’s attention to detail, especially given the tight time-frame, and the drive to improve the product throughout the process. They completed the design, build and fit-out to a very high quality at a competitive price.
Working with Shockwave, we benefited from Andrew Wright’s extensive connections, knowledge and depth of understanding of Australian Maritime Safety Authority regulations, codes of practice, and insurance requirements. This saved us much time, clarified areas of uncertainty and ensured every vessel was compliant.
The Five Short Blasts artists, for whom the boats were built, are particularly pleased with the results. The vessels are very well-designed, safe and light, which makes them easy to transport to other locations and performances.
