Since 1918 Hansen Yuncken has been one of Australia’s premier construction companies delivering major commercial and institutional projects across the nation.


Australian Hiring Company (AHC Events), South Australian Museum, Epicure Catering


October 2018


Adelaide’s best kept secret for corporate events and weddings, the South Australian Museum was chosen by Hansen Yuncken for its historical significance and architectural splendor.

The brief:

To commemorate the centenary of one of Australia’s most significant construction companies.

The project:

Trusted by Hansen Yuncken, collaborating with South Australian Museum and the exceptional catering company Epicure, we set about making this a night to remember. A clear roof pavilion with Hamptons style weights covers, lit with fairy lights and coloured washlights. Round tables with crisp white linen and bentwood chairs for 120 guests. White dance floor under festoon lights. Flame heaters, small stage, presentation tables for memorabilia. Topped off with a double pagoda for catering.

The whole experience further crafted by the clear coloured wall (in the HY corporate colour), large lit ‘100’ and not one but two centre pieces! Working toy cranes that were auctioned off at the end of the night for charity, and floating clear perspex frames holding pictures of valued team members past and present.

Client conclusion:

“In 2018 our annual staff dinner was extra special, we were celebrating 100 years of operations and needed a venue and event team to come up with something fitting. Working with the South Australian Museum, Epicure and Australian Hiring Company was a dream.

Andrew from Australian Hiring Company was creative and knew just what we needed, whilst remaining within our budget. It was nice to meet someone who was willing to try new things, the hanging centrepieces were a hit!

Thank-you to all the team, our dinner ran so smoothly and the feedback from our staff has been fantastic.”
