New upgrades and enhancements at Dubai World Trade Center now underway
Halls 1 and 2 of the Dubai International Exhibition Center have been demolished, and will be replaced by two new, modern exhibition halls, offering some 9,100 square meters of exhibition space in total.
In addition, a 12-meter wide, two-storey concourse will soon front Halls 1 to 4 of the Dubai International Exhibition Center, providing commercial space for retail and food outlets on the ground level and offices and commercial space to let on the first floor level. This entire project is scheduled for completion by September 2002.
Another construction project to be initiated at the end of the month, will alter the front elevation of the Al Wasl building, where the DWTC administrative offices are housed. The building will be altered to provide an air-conditioned link that will join the two concourses that front Halls 1 to 4 on one end, and Halls 5-7 and the new convention center on the other end.
The building will be extended from its present curved structure, by two meters, and an external glass curtain wall enclosure will provide a sleek, modern look. The initial phase of this project will be completed by September 2002, and the final phase, which will commence in November 2002 will be completed by January 2003.
The Dubai World Trade Center has four key business lines: the Dubai International Exhibition Center, the Dubai International Convention Center, the Dubai International Catering Center and the Dubai International Hotel Apartments. — (menareport.com)
