The Dubai International Finance Centre (DIFC) is an established economic development zone of approximately 45 hectares in central Dubai. Its master plan includes a central retail spine, linking already-developed plots with ones currently under development.
DSI’s senior members were lead MEP designers delivering building engineering services for the retail spine, under lead designer RMJM Architects.
The project had to be developed within the ‘built-in’ plant spaces available in the truck and service tunnels; and also had an added challenge of being surrounded by prime structures. This required the team to come out with innovative solutions to route the MEP Engineering services, which also had to take the operational truck and service tunnels into consideration.
