The International Exhibition for Security and National Resilience was a great success last week. We were asked by Jack Morton to build the set which replicated a street scene in which the emergency services of the UAE would conduct their routines in the event of a national emergency.

We supplied 2 buildings which set the scene, a Supermarket and a Bank. ISNR ISNR

We also supplied road markings, concrete effect plant boxes, curbs and pavements which included hand painted grout lines to replicate pavement slabs. ISNR ISNR

Once the projection screen was pulled away it revealed 3 buildings which had been damaged in the earthquake scenario. ISNR

The collapsed building included concrete effect props such as columns and breeze block sections of wall which were carved out of polystyrene.   ISNR

The building below was in the style of an office block. While the exterior was undamaged the inside was made to look as if it was engulfed in flames by clever lighting and a smoke machine. A man exited the building via the roof and was seemingly rescued by a helicopter rescue team.  ISNR

The final building was the fire building, which was home to a series of pyrotechnic special effects. Including a flame bar which was to be extinguished by the fire brigade, a water tank to collect the water used and a mortar which fired debris and a fireball out of the 1st floor window. As the show included real flames we had to make this building entirely out of Class Zero MDF, which does not burn.  ISNR ISNR

The Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum International Photography Awards was held at Dubai Gate Building in DIFC and for the second year running JR Scenic had a big part to play in the construction of the set. In true Dubai fashion the event was bigger and better than the previous year. We supplied the screen surround and stage wall cladding including HIPA logo light boxes which make up the back wall.

ZFEP – Zayed Future Energy Prize

We were approached by HQ Creative to build the main stage for the Zayed Future Energy Prize award ceremony which took place on January 20th. The event stage was a challenging but ultimately very impressive design with programmable LED strip running through the accents of the stage, walls and stairs.

We also supplied the bespoke lectern which interacted with the stage lighting and was branded with the ZFEP logo. The lectern featured an extendable platform for some of the shorter spokesmen to stand on and be comfortably seen by the entire audience.


We also supplied a small VIP seating platform on the upper level.
