Red Bull Cliff Diving

Client: Blink Experience
Scope: Construct and install diving platform
The Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series attracts some of the world's best cliff divers. The event, staged at the Dubai Marina, saw 22 athletes take a leap of faith from a platform secured to a building and into the water 28 metres below.

Working with event organisers Blink Experience, Unusual Rigging:
  • was responsible for the construction and installation of the diving platforms
  • collaborated with Blink Experience to design a solution made entirely of truss and clad with wood which would carry all the Red Bull branding
  • built two platforms which were entirely self-standing so did not require fixing to the building
  • worked with HSAFE Risk Solutions to ensure HSE/ PPE compliance for the duration of the project.
