Dubai Parks and Resorts, a Meraas Holding company developing a mega theme park project in Dubai, announced that it has started construction of DreamWorks’ zone within its Hollywood theme park Motiongate.
DreamWorks’ zone has been designed as an enclosed steel-based structure built on approximately 730,000 sq ft of land within the four million sq ft Motiongate Dubai. The park is scheduled to open in the third quarter of 2016.
The company said that work has begun on the steel structure, which has a total capacity of approximately 53 cubic feet. The structure requires around 5,400 tonnes of steel that have been fabricated into approximately 77 main trusses.
Presently, two 600-tonne crawler cranes have been deployed to lift each truss and track into place, marking a milestone for the development of the park, the statement said.
