Qatar, the most dynamically developing country of the Middle-East invests a lot in the improvement of the country’s sports life. Infrastructure for this development is mostly available in the town of Doha and its outskirts, where stadiums and sports centres were built and are under construction. The Al-Lusail Sports Arena hosted the matches of the 2015 World Men's Handball Championship. Animative designed and installed the sound-effect and rigging system, performed the full scale acoustic modelling and consulting services for the project. Animative designed and implemented a mobile sound and rigging system that meets the requirements of special events.
Since the architectural concept of the stadium did not support the accessibility of the Main Ball sound system we had to solve the problem. Our creative engineers designed a sound system weighing 10 tons that can be lowered to the ground so the parts of it become accessible. The result was a fully motorized and automated system that won the satisfaction of the client. Before the project delivery we carried out the “test and commissioning” process on each part of the system. During the final inspection of the sound system and sound-effect system we had to measure the electroacoustic parameters at 3000 test points.
