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.
