The Middle East's entertainment construction projects are beginning to gather momentum, and in this episode of the Construction Week Viewpoint podcast, Construction Week's features writer, Ashley Williams, chats with Cundall Middle East’s operations director, Lee French, about the firm's business strategy and plans for the sector in the Middle East.

During the podcast, French said that Cundall’s plan was to target the entertainment sector for its next phase of developments, adding that Cundall was in the “middle of something special” for the UAE.
