ISG, a global construction services company, has completed the brand-new Roxy Cinemas in Dubai Hills Mall. The impressive leisure attraction is spread across three floors and spans 101,000sqft, with 15 screens and a total capacity of 1183 seats. The first-floor “Roxy Xtreme” cinema screen, which is equipped with state-of-the-art laser projection and Dolby Atmos sound, is a key feature of the project. The Roxy Xtreme screen, which is the size of two tennis courts, provides an unrivalled movie experience, and the auditorium that houses it has ultra-comfortable seating for 382 people.
Dubai’s trendiest cinema offers an elevated experience for film lovers from the moment they set foot in the highly specified space. The ground floor features hand-crafted decorative Italian mosaics, digital display walls and self-serving kiosks with a grand staircase spanning across all three levels, as well as escalators and lifts. The ground floor has metallic finished curved walls that give a grand entrance feel and are a unique feature of Roxy Dubai Hills Mall. The area also has another unique feature which is a “Hall of Fame” where the hand or footprints of the super stars who visit will be placed.
Bryan Hernandez, project director, Middle East, ISG said “The collaboration amongst the client and all consultants has been outstanding and has contributed to the seamless delivery of this new Roxy Cinemas, as we worked in a live mall environment, adapting our work schedule to minimise our impact around peak mall operational hours. The scheme is an outstanding example of a project rooted in the highest quality delivery and safety standards from a highly motivated and collaborative team of experts.”
Steve Ramsden, managing director, Southeast Asia & Middle East, ISG commented: “This is the second Roxy Cinemas entertainment complex that ISG has delivered, and testament to a relationship built on trust, expertise and delivery excellence. I am immensely proud of the project team that surpassed expectations to deliver this scheme, for Dubai Holding Entertainment, in a logistically complex setting with a fast-paced programme.”
Working alongside renowned consultants and project managers including North 25, Bluehaus Group and JLL, ISG’s scope included structural steel works for stadia seating platforms, projection platforms and suspended corridors, acoustic treatment inside the cinemas for wall panels, joinery works, vertical transportation including four escalators, three lifts, furniture, signage, screed works and kitchen equipment for all F&B counter services, lighting, MEP and IT/security.
