CH2M awarded by Dubai Parks & Resorts for Phase Two contract

Posted on 31st January 2017

CH2M, a leading provider of consulting, design, engineering and management services, said it has been awarded a major contract by UAE-based Dubai Parks & Resorts for Phase Two of its mammoth theme park project.


The theme park, which will be operated by Six Flags from the US, is set to open in 2019.

The scope of work includes delivery of in-park and resort wide infrastructure and traffic services, said a statement from the US-based company.

Dubai Parks and Resorts had last month officially opened the region's largest integrated theme park destination with premiere of Hollywood-inspired theme park Motiongate Dubai.

The attraction, which also includes Legoland Dubai, the dining and entertainment district Riverland, Bollywood Parks Dubai, Legoland Water Park and the Polynesian Lapita Hotel, opened its gates to visitors following a four-year development plan supported by CH2M, said the statement.

The destination - which stretches over 25 million sq ft or the size of 420 football fields - is home to over 50 retail and dining outlets, more than 100 rides and attractions, and 15,000 Lego model structures made from over 60 million Lego bricks.

Adding to more than just the entertainment appeal of Dubai, the leisure destination has already invigorated the UAE property market, boosting long-term economic appeal for international investors, said the statement from CH2M, according to Tradearabia news report.

To bring these attractions to fruition, CH2M has partnered with Dubai Parks & Resorts and other theme park master planners to support the master plan development with site-wide services. These include:

  • Leading a first-of-its-kind in Dubai traffic impact assessment which based trip generation for theme parks on attendance figures rather than built up area;
  • Conducting water sourcing feasibility studies and modelling for the 62-acre lake to find a conceivable water sourcing option for the parks and
  • Delivering earthworks grading and infrastructure design, and providing project and design management.

Headquartered in US state of Colorado, CH2M is an engineering giant providing design, construction, consulting and operations services for corporations and governments.
