How we did it!
The idea was to keep everything completely automated, while the end user still had the option to interfere with manual control at any point with the user friendly interface offered by Mode Lighting. “We used the idea of a distributed control system in which the entire building has been divided into three main areas, Mall FOH, Mall BOH, and Residential towers. Then Mall FOH and Mall BOH were further divided into five floor sections.
The end user can access any area from a single point through a centralized PC that has a unique customized web page for the project that is located in the control room. The energy saving concept is implemented in two ways; Firstly, the dimming system in Mall FOH changes the scenes automatically during the day. Secondly, the use of occupancy sensors drastically conserves energy in the whole building. The system automatically decides the mode of operation based on the fire alarm input signal from the fire alarm system.
“Basically, I can say that this project stands out from the rest because we worked with all the stakeholders in it. Right from the client, Al Majid Properties to the main Contractors.
We coordinated with Darwish Engineering, Studio Lumen- the lighting designer and GECO- the MEP contractor at every stage from concept to execution,” concludes MD Creation Gulf, Mr. Dharmendra Patel.
