Mott MacDonald awarded design and supervision role on Dubai development

Mott MacDonald’s engineering team in Dubai has been awarded the structural design for the £300 million Mirdif City Centre Mall development to be located in a flourishing residential area of Dubai.

When completed it will provide a state-of-the-art shopping and leisure facility for residents and visitors with 430 retail outlets, Carrefour hypermarket, over 60 restaurants and cafes, an entertainment zone featuring a 14 screen cinema, bowling alley, magic planet indoor amusement park, soccer academy and indoor skydiving experience. There will also be car parking for 7000 cars together with a future link to an adjacent station for the Dubai light rail system.

A 25m high glass box will provide a main entrance leading from landscaped gardens to a central avenue which will bisect the mall forming a series of interconnecting rooms of triple height space with roof structures above spanning up to 45m.

As well as being responsible for the structural design, Mott MacDonald is providing supervisory services during construction which has just began and is due for completion towards the end of 2009.

Mott MacDonald project manager, David Ryan said, “We are delighted to be selected for this exciting development by MAF Shopping Malls. We look forward to helping create and deliver a world-class project for the enjoyment of Dubai’s residents and visitors.”
