International consultancy firm Cundall has revealed to Construction Week that it is liaising with developers to debut a “pure theme show” entertainment development for the UAE as part of its business strategy and plans for the region.

In conversation with Construction Week, Cundall Middle East’s operations director, Lee French, revealed that the firm is in the middle of “something special” for the UAE, and is targeting the entertainment sector in the Middle East this year for its projects.

Although French declined to discuss further details of the project, he stated that the development would be unveiled in the next three months.

"We are working on some really groundbreaking entertainment – pure theme show stuff, which is how I would categorise it – with the world’s leading entertainment show developers and creatives,” said French.

“It’s a shame that we can’t go into too much detail, but it’s something that we don’t have in the UAE.

"This year in particular, we believe in the market and [feel] that we have the ability, the skills, and the understanding of the complexities of the [entertainment] sector itself, and what it takes to deliver a successful project at the end through that complex process," he added.
