New solution will also improve the perception of space according to the lighting manufacturer
French lighting manufacturer SWITCH MADE has announced that it has completed fitting new energy-efficient façade lighting at the Dubai Mall. The firm says the project involved the development of a custom solution with the aim of giving the shopping destination a ‘youthful and modern visual identity’.
SWITCH MADE says the retrofitted lighting solutions will allow the mall to decrease its annual energy consumption for façade lighting by 40- to-50%. The firm says its new lighting solutions will also improve the quality of lighting in terms of uniformity, illuminance and color rendering efficiency.
“As a French company, we are committed to the vision of the government to enhance our international outreach. Building on the strong bilateral relations between France and the UAE, we see significant opportunity to partner in major infrastructure projects in the country This is highlighted by the completion of the new energy-efficient façade lighting solution at Dubai Mall. We managed the project end-to-end, from design to value engineering, installation and support on-site, highlighting our integrated approach to project delivery,” explained Jeremy Loisel, CEO of SWITCH MADE.
The project involved fitting LED modules, projectors and cove linear lights to meet the mall’s design goal of creating peaceful, aesthetic ambient lighting. Nearly 52,000 LED luminaires were installed according to SWITCH MADE, which helps to create a dynamic façade that spans across 10km.
“Our approach is not about simply being an LED lighting provider but to assure a full-lighting service that will enhance the operational efficiency of our clients in the UAE, and achieve remarkable quality,” said Loisel
