The Lume

Melbourne Exhibition Centre

A State-Of-The-Art Gallery With Unique Technical Requirements.

Opening in 2021, THE LUME is set to join the ranks of Melbourne’s most prestigious art and cultural attractions. Making its permanent home inside the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, it is not only Australia’s, but also the Southern Hemisphere’s first purpose-built space to seamlessly animate art at such a jaw-dropping scale.

SCG Electrical Group were proud to be part of such an innovative project and were involved from the outset, working closely with Grand Experiences & Lexon Group during both the design & construction phases to establish a suitable venue.

Key planning considerations included; sufficient mains capacity, AV power reticulation, switchboard & control cabinet design/manufacture, HDBaseT Network Solutions, Lighting, Automation and Access Control.

Our technicians executed the infrastructure build during the first half of 2021. A unique project, 'The Lume' required SCG to implement several of our core services including; essential power, innovative technologies, lighting controls, automation, audio-visual distribution, network solutions, access control, CCTV and security.

Our end-to-end involvement in this next-generation digital art gallery included the Design, Supply & Installation of the following components;

  • Mains and Switchboards
  • Light fittings and lighting controls
  • Evacuation lighting
  • Essential and non-essential power
  • AV Distribution Power and UPS’s
  • Socapex AV distribution
  • Customised Black cable management
  • Data Cabinets and Patch Bays
  • Cat6A F/UTP network solution
  • Access control system
  • CCTV system
  • People counting system
  • ScentAir HVAC Scent Delivery
