The lighting solution was delivered by Lighting group Qatar, with Nova-lux company as a partner on this project in charge of light calculations and 3D light visualizations. On a computer 3D model of the object, precise light calculations were made incorporating realistic characteristics of optics. Those light calculations were a challenge to make due to specific and custom made light fixtures incorporated within the metal structure. Various optics and lighting scenes were tested and simulated on 3D model. Linear LED light fixtures were used with the neutral white color of light. With the implementation of this highly innovative light solution, this unique facade of the Control Tower is accentuated enhancing its impressive structure.
