Arising from an initial contact made at the recent PLASA show in London, the Middle East's leading stage and set rental company, IBS Decor, commissioned Litestructures to design a hospitality unit for Mubadala, Ferrari's official race sponsor at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. The IBS design concept called for a structure shaped to read as 'F1' when viewed from one side. This required a complex design as it necessitated the use of reverse angles of up to 70 degrees to achieve the desired profile. Measuring 14m long x 7.5m wide, and with a height of 6m, this was a substantial project, for which we chose LitePro390-4 truss elements, which were then clad to give the best cosmetic appearance. Taking just 3 weeks from concept to completion, Litestructures, no strangers to the world of Formula 1, showed a winning turn of speed. Interestingly, the same structure has since been used for an exhibition in Dubai with IBS's Alan Scoley commenting that “it was a pleasure to work alongside Litestructures. A lot of hard work and effort were put into the project to meet the tight deadline. It all went together like a glove sliding on to your hand".
