Bahrain World Trade Center wins PALME Award

The Bahrain World Trade Center has won at the PALME Middle East Awards. Held at the Al Multaqua Ballroom at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre, the ceremony celebrated achievements in the categories of AV, audio technology and lighting design. BWTC sub-consultants, LDP International, were awarded ‘Best Use for Exterior Lighting’ for their subtle and elegant lighting design illuminating the outside of the building.

Designed and engineered by Atkins, the twin sail-shaped towers are famous for being the world’s first commercial building to incorporate large-scale wind turbines. Lights follow the curved elliptical form linked by the three bridges, incorporating the wind turbine features. These three 29m diameter turbines produce 11-15% of the towers’ electrical requirement and are very much the focal point of the project.

Douglas Hamilton, a lead designer on the project said: "LDPi are delighted to receive this accolade which recognises a combined effort with Atkins in establishing a fully integrated lighting solution which emphasises and enhances the strength of Atkins’ design concept. We are encouraged that such design strength is recognised in such a competitive environment."
