Secret Cinema is a company that focuses on producing themed film-screenings that incorporate live performances.
The event management company had contacted us with regard to crowd modeling and occupant capacity for a film showing in a disused underground section of Sydney Central Station.
The fire, and smoke risks were highlighted to the client, as were the effects of carbon dioxide, on the attendees, due to poor ventilation.
Crowd modelling was used, using Crowd Dynamics software, which demonstrated visual crowd interpretations and a safe occupant capacity, which allowed for a safe evacuation, in accordance with the Building Codes of Australia, human behaviour and the site layout, was advised in advance of the event. NSW Fire and Sydney Central Station approved the documentation for the events opening night.
