A star in Culture Village - Rotana, Al Jaddaf

October - 2020

A hotel must offer the industry’s highest level of services and accommodation to have a 5-star hotel rating. While 24/7 room services, multi cuisine restaurants and cafes, exclusive locations etc. are some of the major requirements, the lighting system is also a direct factor, and must match up to and highlight the luxurious ambience of the hotel. At Creation, we have worked on several 5-star hotel projects and are a testimony to the world class level of our technical services and project management skills.

Rotana, Al Jaddaf is another such feather in our cap.

The brand new Rotana, Al Jaddaf is a 15 storey luxury hotel with 338 rooms and an array of F&B outlets, is located in the developing hub of Al Jaddaf- home to Dubai’s cultural village.

A year ago, Rotana Al Jaddaf’s developers, MKM Commercial approached Creation to take on complete responsibility for the supply, installation, testing, and commissioning of the Lighting Control System for the interiors and façade of the project. Team Creation also took on the custom solution for the floor number display system for the elevators in the hotel. The floor numbers are displayed on a backlit 2-meter-tall box with addressed lights which illuminate the lift box upon reaching the desired floor. To achieve this the lighting control system had to be integrated with the lift’s electrical system.

Key products employed in this project included Helvar and Osram. “The client had a few brands in mind. However, as specialists they gave us freedom to choose an appropriate brand based on the application. Given the considerable amount of DALI on the project, we recommended Helvar, which was approved as a suitable solution,” says Mr. Dharmendra Patel, MD, Creation.

Although no Covid-19 specific issues surfaced, coordinating with contractors in order to ensure smooth execution was a tall order. “Keeping up with the changes in the selection of fixtures, dimming protocols and concepts meant we were tasked with re-designing the system without compromising on the requirements,” he elaborates.
Light Tip
Choose LED bulbs based on lumens not watts
Most people buy LED bulbs based on their watt consumption, since they believe wattage is the best indicator of brightness... however watts only indicate the power used by the bub. The true indicator of brightness is lumen (lm) since this measurement is specifically made to measure the brightness of a light bulb.
