Dubai malls


Strong international partnership

Mall of the Emirates, Dubai

Interserve has been a key player in the construction of two of the world's most prestigious shopping malls in Dubai, UAE; Mall of the Emirates; and Dubai Mall.

Our construction of the Mall of the Emirates took two years and we have been awarded a £50 million project comprising a four-storey extension; additional parking facilities; and a link to the Dubai Metro public transport system. The Mall of the Emirates, the third-largest in the world and the largest outside North America when it was built, provides over 7.9 million sq ft of retail space and can comfortably accommodate 50,000 people at a time. It houses more than 440 tenants including a 656,000 sq ft Carrefour hypermarket; a 14-screen cinema with separate theatre and two entertainment zones; three food courts with some 40 food outlets; and eight major restaurants.

Interserve has also been heavily involved in the construction of the Dubai Mall, which houses hundreds of shops, an indoor ice rink and the largest shopping mall aquarium in the world, and has more than 16,000 car parking spaces. The Dubai Mall has over 11.8 million sq ft of available space and the main four-storey structure has a footprint of 3.2 million sq ft.


  • World-class shopping centre built in 21 months.


  • Mall of the Emirates has one of the largest double-glazed skylight in the world. The Galleria rises 42m from ground floor and is 36m in diameter (could accommodate the Statue of Liberty) and provides 157,000 sq ft of natural light.
  • 1.6 million sq ft of granite flooring, sourced from Brazil, Zimbabwe, India and Italy for Mall of the Emirates.
