A carpark of tomorrow, designed and built today

The 900k sqft project comprised a multi-storey car park over six floors and roof level of parking with a direct pedestrian link to the neighbouring Novotel Hotel and Convention Gate of Dubai World Trade Centre. The world’s second largest helipad with full landing and support facilities was created on the roof with direct access for VIP and associated lobby areas. The roof parking shading combined shading with photovoltaic panels for energy efficiency for the facility. SESC worked in the capacity of MEP contractor for the installation of containment and cabling pulling for all Fire Alarm, BMS and Lighting systems as well as the associated MEP services. The new facility dramatically improves the parking options for both the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre (DICEC) and World Trade Centre Arena, as well as the Trade Centre District in general. It will also provide a substantial LED advertising opportunity on the curved façade mounted LED screen.
