Hill International has been awarded a $50.9 million-worth contract by Meraas Leisure and Entertainment to provide consultancy services for show and ride construction during the first phase of Dubai Parks & Resorts project. 

“This will be a hallmark leisure development for Dubai,” Mohammed Al Rais, senior vice president and managing director of the Middle East region for Hill’s project management group said.

“We are extremely honored and excited to be part of such an important development that will have a significant impact on tourism and the local economy,” Al Rais added.

The $2.7 billion-worth Dubai Parks development is expected to open by 2016. The first phase of Dubai Parks & Resorts will comprise three theme parks, namely Motiongate Dubai, Bollywood Parks Dubai, and LEGOLAND Dubai. The development will also feature a grand entrance plaza called Riverpark, and a hotel called Lapita that is targeted at families.

Dubai Parks & Resorts will be constructed in Dubai’s Jebel Ali area, and the development also includes an inner-city family entertainment center with retail and dining facilities in the Satwa region of Dubai.

Meraas had announced its plans for the project late in 2012. In the years since, the company has finalised key components and partnerships with construction firms, theme park operators and global movie studios for the creation of Dubai Parks & Resorts’ design.
