BE Collective and dwp

BE Collective MD, John Tuxworth recently caught up with dwp Director & Global Hospitality Sector Leader, Justin Wells, in Dubai.

Justin’s award-winning hotel portfolio spans across continents. With a penchant for hospitality, Justin’s approach to interiors is one of contemporary creation combined with a touch of disruptionism. Justin’s style is exhibited through 3 & 4 star operations in the region for the likes of Aloft Deira City Centre, and Marsa Al Seef Hotels, and he is currently working on a 5 star offering for Gran Melia in Saudi Arabia.  

Like dwp, BE Collective delivers internationally, with 20% annual revenue derived from projects across 8 Countries. BE Collective has most recently supported hospitality developments for Spicers Retreats, a sustainability & nature-focused group with 13 retreats across the east-coast of Australia. Spicers are market leaders, setting the benchmark for sustainable tourism in Australia.

BE Collective looks forward to working with Justin again in the near future and to supporting dwp’s substantive hospitality forward-order book for the year ahead.

Rebuilding a heritage Empire

BE Collective’s Brad Head & John Tuxworth attended the recent reopening celebration of the historic Empire Theatre.  Brad & John were guests of the theatre in recognition of BE Collective’s contribution to the $6.32M Heritage refurbishment, completed 22nd March 2019. Preserved elements of the heritage listed theatre include the elegant art deco proscenium arch, decorative sconces, and bomber-light, dating back to 1933. The 1500 Seat theatre now incorporates low level, low displacement air-conditioning, and excellent sound engineering.

A key supporter of the theatre is Heritage Bank. Heritage is Toowoomba born & bred – and was awarded Bank of the Year for customer satisfaction in 2018. Heritage’s CEO Mr Peter Lock proudly opened the evening’s proceedings.

Hutchinson Builders completed the refurbishment, adding the Empire to their catalogue of theatre work which now includes the Palais Theatre in St Kilda, the Billie Brown Theatre in South Brisbane, and the Brisbane Power House. The Empire is the jewel in the crown of the Toowoomba Regional Arts and Community Centre (TRACC) complex.
