White opens with Eurotruss
UAE: Dubai’s White nightclub opened at Meydan Racecourse’s Grandstand Rooftop under a structure from Eurotruss. The decagon-shaped aluminium TT Ground Support structure forming the venue consists of over 200m of TT series truss, holding together a body composed of 10 towers with a 33m span each.
The structure includes four circles of 6m diameter and 50m HD44 Box Truss as well. The space is levelled using 250 pieces of Eurotruss Stage Decks that can support more than a 1,000 people. ‘Eurotruss’ support, from the team in The Netherlands, was key in delivering the project on time,’ said George Germanos, head of the technical department.
Dubai-based company Procom and Eurotruss teamed up to make this job happen in only four weeks. Along with its sister company in Lebanon, Prolites, Procom-ME designed and supplied the lighting, video and trussing equipment and installed the venue in a four-days.
Two large airfreight shipments were organised by Eurotruss to get all the materials from The Netherlands, through Istanbul to Dubai and deliver it straight on to the Meydan Racecourse having a team of riggers and stagehands waiting to start setting up the scene immediately.
The visual side of the install saw a large amount of Cyclops Lighting. Over 100 platinum series CL230B-ER moving head beams, 50 CPX436-MZ moving head LED washes, 50 LED par Flash-1and Flash-40 wireless DMX battery powered lights, in addition to 16 CL700S-ER moving head spots, stroboscopes, haze and CO₂ jets have all been installed. Atom 10W RGB lasers add to the light show which is controlled by an Avolites Pearl Expert Pro with a touch wing. Finally, around 150 sq-m of VisioTek LED screens form a semi-circular visual backdrop.
