Switch Made has retrofitted the façade lighting of Dubai Mall, it has been revealed.

The France-headquartered lighting manufacturer said in a statement that it carried out value engineering for the new façade lighting of the world’s largest mall to give the property “a youthful and modern visual identity”.

Switch Made provided a lighting package that included LED modules, projectors, and cove linear lights.

Close to 52,000 LED luminaries were installed, creating a dynamic façade that spans 10,000m, according to the company, adding that the retrofit lighting systems were custom-made for the mall, with the aim of reducing the energy consumption of its façade lighting by 40-50%.

Jeremy Loisel, chief executive officer of Switch Made, said: “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.”
