Mott MacDonald marks Mirdif Mall opening, Dubai

Mott MacDonald's role as structural and geotechnical engineering consultant for the Majid Al Futtaim Group on the prestigious Mirdif City Centre Mall in Dubai reached fruition as the Mall was formally opened for business on 16 March 2010.

Mott MacDonald's engineering team in Dubai were awarded the structural design for the £300 million Mirdif City Centre Mall in October 2007. Fully completed, it has a state-of-the-art shopping and leisure facility for residents and visitors with 430 retail outlets, a Carrefour hypermarket, 79 restaurants and cafes, CineStar Cinemas featuring a 10 screen cinema 3D & Extreme Screen, Yalla! Bowling 12 lane bowling alley, Magic Planet indoor amusement park, Soccer Circus interactive football attraction, Cite des Enfants centre, iFly indoor skydiving centre and Aquaplay indoor facility.

A 25 metre high glass box provides the main entrance leading from landscaped gardens to a central avenue, which bisects the mall forming a series of interconnecting rooms of triple height space with roof structures above spanning up to 45m. Of particular technical interest, is the long span lightweight steel roof trusses which give large column free spaces allowing for enhanced air circulation and providing a fresher shopping environment.

As well as being responsible for the structural design, Mott MacDonald provided supervisory services during construction.
