Dubai-based firm Viva City has announced that the construction of Sports Society, the world’s largest sports mall, in Mirdif Dubai is on track for completion in early 2020.
“The project’s construction work is progressing according to schedule and within the allocated budget, thanks to the efficient operations of Khansaheb Civil Engineering, the company commissioned to carry out the construction works,” said Viva City’s head of design, Edgar Bove.
The sports mall will have three floors with a total area that is equal to 12 football pitches. The ground floor will have a large space for organising various sporting events.
The mall will also have a screen that will be one of the largest LED display panels on which visitors can watch international sports events.
Bove said the pouring of almost 60,000 cubic metres of structural concrete has so far taken place with the erection of nine structural steel trusses.
“We are dealing with the challenging delivery period which will be achieved by using cutting edge, time-saving and modern construction techniques,” he said.
“The process of building the world’s largest sports mall faces many challenges, especially as the project is designed to be an architectural icon that will deliver a unique experience combining shopping, entertainment and sports activities,” Bove added.
