Pavilion at the Beach

August 2022,

Tourism is an important constituent of the Emirati economy. The industry has continued to expand over the years with expected revenue to reach 12.4% of GDP by 2027.

We at Creation are proud to be associated with several tourism promoting projects. Some of them featured in our recent newsletters include the Sharjah Safari park, the DHCP Roller coaster-The Storm and Buur, the restaurant brand of German origin located at Pavilion on the Beach. This newsletter features the important project of lighting up the common area between restaurants at the same site.

As tourism picks up pace post Covid and having won the trust and confidence of clients and contractors, we look forward to being associated with more and more tourism-related projects

Pavilion at the Beach

Project Name – The Pavillion – JBR
Client – Merex
Contractor – Arco Group
Lighting Designer – LightTouch

The Beach is one of Dubai’s most popular tourist destinations for residents and tourists. The Beach has a modern design with the background of the Arabian Gulf with several attractions that include shopping, dining and various activities. The vibe for visitors is that ‘every day is a weekend’ feeling. Spanning across 3,40,000 sq feet, the Beach has something for everyone. Several outdoor activities, retail stores, multicuisine restaurants, seaside leisure and adventure for kids and others are expected to make a day at The Beach memorable.

Pavilion at the Beach is a unique 60,000 square feet retail space serving a wide range of F&B offerings from around the world through six popular restaurants, namely the German-inspired Buur, Hurricane’s Grills & Bar, an Australian steakhouse, the Tokyo-inspired Akiba Dori, La Mezcaleria, Eataly from Italy and the American inspired Claw BBQ. These feature cuisines from all around the world 365 days in a year and overlook the glittering waters of the Arabian Sea.

Creation was tasked with providing lighting solutions in the common areas outside the restaurants as per the design provided by the lighting designer, Light Touch. The requirement was to automatically control common area lighting based on a time schedule and external photocell. Provisions were also made for DMX Controls. 

eDIN Lighting control modules and Evo control plates from Mode lighting were used for the project. Also, Magnetic Tracks, Neon Flex, and LED Strip lights from Ledray were used. The Mode lighting was integrated with the existing lighting control system, enabling control of all area lighting at JBR from a central location. 

The major challenge in the project was the tight timeline as the entire project had to be completed in two weeks. Creation’s vast experience enabled complete adherence to the timeline.

Pavilion at the Beach will set a high benchmark for Dubai’s coastline, very attractive addition to the Emirate’s tourism destinations at the Beach. It will also boost Dubai’s thriving F&B sector with its 365 days year all day night concept. 

Smart lighting

Smart lighting involves smart LED bulbs that have software connecting to an app, home assistant or other accessories enabling automation of lights or remote control such as dimming, making wall switches redundant. They are more energy efficient than traditional bulbs besides saving electricity costs through setting schedules, controlling brightness, and operating the lights based on motion sensors. An entire smart home can be created using a smart lighting system with other smart devices like thermostats, audio equipment, thermostats etc.
