Dubai is the most populated city in the United Arab Emirates and remains one of one of the nation’s most powerful emirates, an emergent global city and a major business hub of the Middle East.
Dubai’s economy is internationally known for its trade-based, oil-reliant revenues, which helped accelerate the city’s early development. Many of the world’s largest and biggest buildings are in Dubai. Arcadis’ architectural and engineering expertise helped to design and construct the Burj Khalifa, the tallest man-made structure in the world, this super-tall skyscraper is located in the business district of Dubai that forms the centerpiece of the city’s most prestigious urban development.
With the city’s western-style business model and national vision, the economy continues to drive the city’s diversification where its main revenue now comes from tourism, aviation, real estate and financial services. It is one of the world’s fastest growing economies and has attracted world attention with its many innovative projects like Arcadis’ award winning City Centre Mirdif Mall and the sustainable Dubai Creek Masterplan that developed 13.3 million square meters.
The recent Dubai 2020 Expo win is also expected to bring in major economic benefits, generating activities worth billions of dirhams and creating over 270,000 jobs. Moreover, the expo theme concentrates on opportunity, mobility and sustainability; global matters key to Arcadis’ mission.
Arcadis is pleased to partner and help improve quality of life in Dubai.
