The Brief

eLight Works project managed phase 1 of a complete retrofit for Dubai Festival City Mall (DFC), a leading waterfront destination which houses an array of prestigious retailers and restaurants as well as world-class entertainment.

The Solution

The building provided a unique challenge containing over two million square feet of leasable space. With three floors of open gallery area including a glass atrium roof the installation required specialist expertise to deliver the retrofit project. The project replaced existing 2,000 150x Metal Halides with 2,000 28w LEDs doubling light levels and providing a 10 year maintenance free solution.

The Result

The LEDs provide 400 lux at floor level from height of 23 meters saving the customer nearly £60,000 in energy costs per year. This gives DFC an annualized (over 5 yrs) profit uplift of £145,080. Also the project has delivered 200 tonnes of carbon saving per year. Since completing this project, DFC has won awards Retail Lighting Project of the Year and Gold Award for Private Companies's Energy Efficiency Awards.
