Dubai Festival City Mall is Dubai’s leading waterfront destination which houses an array of prestigious retailers and restaurants as well as world-class entertainment.

The building provided a unique challenge in a number of ways. Firstly, it contains over two million square feet of leasable space, resulting in a significant amount of man power needed to refit the entire building. Secondly, there are three floors of an open gallery area with a glass atrium roof. We illuminated the ground floor at 23 metres achieveing 400 lux.

Dubai Festival City Mall has already seen a reduction in operational costs by £57,816 and we removed the need for any replacement lamps for around 15 years, significantly reducing these costs by £21,024.
