In yet another contracting coup, Al Shirawi Contracting has completed interior work in the 14 screen cinema complex at the Mall of the Emirates.
“Our reputation as cinema specialists is well and truly taking hold,” said Raj Pal Saran, the General Manager, Interiors Division, of Al Shirawi Contracting. “Having successfully carried out similar work in the Ibn Battuta cinemas, Al Tayer Stocks were happy to award us this latest contract.”
Al Shirawi’s piece de resistance in the MOE complex was to supply and install a metal concourse [tunnel] at the entrance. “This was a first for us,” explained Raj, “and involved installing a series of powder coated perforated aluminium panels, each measuring 2400 by 600mm, to create a semi-circular walk-way.”
Al Shirawi also installed all 14 cinema ceilings with double layered acoustic tiles set on isolation mounts, as well as other ceiling and decor work in the foyer and lobby. “We also did a lot of the ceiling and wall cladding in the Magic Planet activity area,” added Raj.
