Qatar Education City Convention Centre Equipped with Robert Juliat Gear

PLSN Staff • International News • August 25, 2011

DOHA, Qatar — Svetlost Teatar of Belgrade provided Robert Juliat HMI profiles, followspots and Solo Fluorescent lighting for spaces within the new Qatar Education City Convention Centre (QECCC).

Designed by Arata Isozaki and RHWL Architects, the exterior of the QECCC complex resembles a Sidra tree – the national symbol of Qatar. It is made up of 10 halls, including the 2,500-seat Lyric Theatre, the 500-seat Concert Hall and a 4,000-capacity banqueting and event facility. QECCC also includes lecture halls, breakout spaces and a multipurpose exhibition hall.

For the Lyric Theatre, Svetlost Teatar provided Robert Juliat D’Artagnan 930 SNX 2.5kW HMI profiles with Jalousie 2 dimming shutters and two Cyrano 2500W HMI followspots. Twenty-four Solo 744 fluorescent strips were also added for linear effect production lighting.

Another 12 Solo units were installed in the Concert Hall along with two Super Korrigan 1200W HMI followspots. Four more Cyrano followspots were provided for the banqueting and event space, which is being used for large scale events such as international boat and motor shows.

Additional fluorescent Solo units have been installed around the QECCC as decorative linear-effect lighting.

Svetlost Teatar’s project manager, Petar Jankovic, cited “high quality” as the key factor behind the decision to go with the Robert Juliat gear.
