The project is spread over various areas throughout the Al Maryah Shopping Centre and Galleria Mall. Elements of the works include demolition and strip out of an existing concourse link bridge between The Galleria Mall and the Al Maryah Central (AMC) Mall, which includes the removal of existing MEP services, partitions, marble flooring, screed and external cladding.

The link is then fitted out with new retail outlets, MEP, and marble flooring to match the existing AMC finishes, building services and a Barrisol feature ceiling.

McLaren inherited the design of the Concourse Bridge at 50% Schematic Design Stage and proceeded under a Design and Build Contract

McLaren and its Designer (GHD) then verify the design documents and develop the design up to 100% Detailed Design in accordance with the Employer’s Requirements.

The second element of the project consists of the modification of two connectivity corridors, joining the roofs of the North and South carparks of the Galleria Mall with the AMC Mall.

This work is very complex due to its location on the roof of the existing car parks so careful planning and logistics, including road closures, night time deliveries and loading of materials have needed expertise and very careful consideration.

The works will include the new construction of blockwork, concrete foundations and steel frame corridors, along with standing seam roof and external sandwich panel cladding. Inside the corridors is fit-out works including marble flooring, MEP services and ceiling, along with stud partitions and curtain wall / glazing.

On top of the existing roofs is 2 new Landscape areas which will provide green park space and open areas for future entertainment events and general public enjoyment.
