Building a Ski slope right in the middle of the desert (inside Mall of the Emirates, to be precise) is not something you see often. This challenging task was undertaken by Majid Al Futtaim. It is not just another ski slope, it happens to be the world’s third largest indoor ski slope and the first to open in the Middle East.
We have been privileged to be associated with a number of premium real estate projects in prime locations of Dubai. Our accumulated experience and expertise have given us the confidence to work with the biggest and best clients. We carry out extensive consultations with all stakeholders to understand their requirements and incorporate the learnings in our final solution. This makes us the preferred choice in most projects.
We have been privileged to be associated with a range of prestigious restaurants in the Middle East for their lighting and controls requirements. It goes without saying that lighting plays an important role in attracting and retaining the right clientele. Even within a restaurant, lighting has to be flexible to adjust to different times of the day as well as to the occasion.
Lighting is an integral part of every project, but often lighting stays in the background, creating an ambience, and providing sufficient illumination for tasks or just for visibility. At ‘The Storm’, Dubai’s first of its kind indoor rollercoaster, lighting takes the centre stage. Lighting was used to mimic severe weather conditions such as thunderstorms, lightning etc. besides regular illumination. Lighting was also used to create special effects such as images of Fireworks, various shapes and the UAE National Flag.
In the mid-nineties, a project brought me to the Middle East. Seeing the city in the throes of a massive construction boom, I took the plunge and relocated from the UK, seeking a piece of the action. Three decades later, I’ve witnessed and participated in the city’s phenomenal growth. Our portfolio represents this journey. Included in it are projects of every scale and dimension, some of which are Iconic. Initially palaces, residences and villas were our mainstays, and later came the hotels, hospitals and schools. And as UAE’s awe inspiring growth continued, our projects lists included some trailblazing structures like The Opus, Dubai Frame, and Capital Gate to name a few.
Nowadays lighting control is no more an optional system for restaurants. In fact, it is critical to ensuring a successful lighting scheme. With control systems becoming more affordable, they are no more the luxury they once were and should be the foremost priority for food outlets.
