The Internal Security Force (ISF) of Qatar is building a residential complex in Al Dahil on the outskirts of Doha · Qatar, and the Spanish company GRUPO MCI has been in charge to light up the main façade of this mega project.
To light up the almost two kilometers façade wall, around 265.000 LEDs in RGBW have been installed to create a dynamic and changing color lighting effect.
The ISF project features more than 330 individual building units made up of several different types of purpose-built facilities. The camp is planned to have an ultimate resident population of more than 17 000 and it is expected overall completion date is in 2025. Besides residential buildings, the area will include post office, unit force offices, unit guardhouses, check points, a five-star hotel and a 10.000 spectator stadium.
The ISF camp development is the first project in Qatar which has been targeted to achieve the QSAS Neighborhood Certification. QSAS is the ‘Qatar Sustainability Assessment System’, a new classification which aims to promote sustainability in construction and encourage sympathy between new developments and their surrounding areas.
