Plumb­ing Project of the Year

MEP Middle East - - MEP AWARDS 2018 -

Khatib & Alami lim­ited won the Plumb­ing Project of the Year award for the aqua the­atre La Perle, Dubai.

Man­sour Ab­dulla Kharoub, man­ager, me­chan­i­cal sec­tion, Khatib & Alami, said: “There are many rea­sons for us to win this award. This is a very spe­cial project for a spe­cial client. This is for Al Habtoor Group. This is a unique project. Be­hind the scenes, you will find big sys­tems with com­pli­cated con­trols. This project is spe­cial in ev­ery as­pect.”

La Perle is a 1,300-seat, aqua-the­atre (one of only three in the world) fea­tur­ing the re­gion’s first per­ma­nent show. The show’s aquatic the­atrics and grav­i­ty­de­fy­ing per­for­mances could only be de­liv­ered in a the­atre cus­tom-built with au­to­mated stag­ing, high-tech over­head rig­ging and cut­ting edge tech­nolo­gies. To cre­ate an in­ter­ac­tive ex­pe­ri­ence, the venue is built around a large pool which fea­tures sev­eral dy­namic wa­ter fea­tures.

The sig­nif­i­cant chal­lenges of de­sign­ing and de­liv­er­ing the plumb­ing el­e­ments of the project were de­liv­ered us­ing in­ter­na­tional best prac­tice tech­niques, with a fo­cus on sus­tain­abil­ity, ef­fi­ciency, safety and re­li­a­bil­ity. Given their crit­i­cal na­ture, the ro­bust­ness of the plumb­ing sys­tems is es­sen­tial, en­abling them to meet ex­pected lev­els of per­for­mance on a daily ba­sis ev­ery sin­gle day, ex­cept for four weeks when main­te­nance takes place.
