    Dubai Safari Park animals will have best facilities, says director

    Dubai Safari Park’s technical director says it animals will have the best facilities when the attraction opens its doors to the public.
    Following pressure from wildlife groups in Africa about the importation of animals, Timothy Husband insisted baby elephants and other animals in Dubai will not be used for rides.
    Reports that a Swedish-owned game farm in Namibia allowed the capture and export of five baby elephants for Dubai were denied.
    Mr Husband said the new attraction will be a market leader when it opens later this year, or early 2018.
    The wild animal specialist and zoo keeper was bought in by Dubai Municipality three years ago to oversee the new park, and use his 40 years of knowledge to help create a safe, animal-friendly environment.
    Desert elephants from Namibia were chosen as they are regarded as adaptable to the harsh UAE climate.
    He said there was never a plan to import wild elephants, but he was hoping to import older elephants who had been rescued in Namibia.
    “The elephants I chose were going to be culled,” Mr Husband said. “They were teenagers. We were never going to take babies, as they must be schooled by adults.
    “If you have babies without adults, they will become delinquent and unmanageable. The elephants I was looking at in Namibia were around 10 years old.
    “We changed our path from the company that was supplying them, as we were not comfortable using them.”

    Trading wild elephants for commercial purposes is illegal in terms of Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species on Fauna and Flora criteria.
    A group of 30 specialist dealers was reduced to three, as part of a tightly controlled tender process.
    The process is one Mr Husband is familiar with, having looked at more than 200 giraffes before selecting 19 for the park.
    Every animal is micro chipped with a matching serial number for a stock book, so checks can be made to ensure all animals are transported legally.
    It is a stringent process.
    Animals are selected for their best genetics, to give the park a good foundation stock so it can trade with other zoos.
    The four female elephants chosen for Dubai required health checks and export permits supplied by the dealer, and import permits on the other side.
    The convention requires extensive paperwork to be completed before any animal is moved.
    The story was leaked in Namibia to animal rights groups who published false claims about exporting baby elephants from the wild.
    “Reputation is everything,” said Mr Husband, who is from New Zealand. If I ever have a bad animal transaction or feel something is suspicious, I leave it – it is not worth it.
    “It is such a small industry we all know each other.
    “They used a photo of four random baby elephants, I knew they were not mine,” he said.
    “They said we were planning elephant rides, but one of the reasons I’m here is to stop that kind of thing. There is no way we would allow that here.”
    Elephants rescued from logging operations or poachers will be given a new life in the park, where they will have the freedom to walk around and the use of three swimming pools and mud wallows.

    The park is also planning an elephant conservation programme and will take part in co-ordinated breeding programmes here in the UAE, and overseas.
    Its aim is to create a stable elephant population in the UAE to help preserve the species.
    The Exhibited Animals Protection Act states an animal should have a minimum area to move around in by law. Dubai Safari Park aims to triple that area for its animals.
    It will have space for 5,000 animals, but is likely to have half that amount when it opens.
    Rather than heated rocks and warmer areas like there are in zoos in cooler climates, everything will be cooled, including refrigerated pools for hippos and elephants.
    Water is being pumped through two types of filtration and a cooling system. It is a unique operation, with lions and primates also benefiting from air conditioning in their dens. Misting fans will keep birds cool.
    “We want the animals to go into their enclosure every night so the keepers can look at them and treat them if necessary,” Mr Husband said.
    “I’ve had a lot of sleepless nights, but it will be worth it.”

    Keeping technical aspects in mind while doing fit-outs

    There is an ongoing upswing of refurbishment projects in hotels, commercial buildings, and residential areas. However, retail spaces in shopping centres form another important vertical that’s taking shape in the region’s fit-out and refurbishment industry. There is a constant requirement to refurbish malls both on the front-of-house and back–of-house side of things according to Unicorn Electromechanical director Mohammed Rashid Ali.

    Ali tells fmME that the purpose of refurbishment projects is no different from other sectors and will always be two fold — to keep up with latest trends and general wear-and-tear caused by a facilities’ usage.

    Meanwhile, Govind Shelpy works as a senior design manager with design, branding, and project management agency Creneau International Middle East. Shelpy gives an aesthetic overview of refurbishments and fit outs. He says: “Those considering buying or leasing real-estate are looking for an experience, especially a guest staying at a hotel. Aesthetics might be the first thing that people notice, but it takes more than good design.” He elucidates that these “spaces” within a building need to have well-developed facilities.

    Ali says: “The latest trend in MEP refurbishment is to make the premise more vibrant and energy efficient. Most clients are aware of optimal usage of electricity and chilled water. This can be achieved either by shifting to energy efficient lamps or by maintaining the appropriate air conditioners.

    “Meanwhile, food and beverage outlets focus on installing energy recovery units which are soon becoming a ‘must-have’ piece of equipment insisted upon by retail zone developers,” Ali reveals.

    Time plays a crucial factor during the fit-out and refurbishment process, and an MEP contractor has to be wary of procurement durations. “We won’t get a second chance to procure any long lead items if we miss out on timing the project right — which delays the entire project. Hence, it’s important for MEP contractors and FM companies who enter the refurbishment space to take each and every aspect of the plan into account from the get go,” Ali adds.

    MECHANICAL, ELECTRICAL AND SKILLED LABOUR

    From an MEP perspective, Ali says refurbishment projects are generally straightforward. “The issues arise when we are faced with a shortage of resources such as power or chilled water. In such case, the refurbishment contractors will have to start from scratch after obtaining all the authority approvals for the upgrades and replacing the provisions — either cables or pipelines — to higher capacities.”

    Skilled labour is as important in executing tasks and Ali says it could play a pivotal role in lifespan of installations.

    “The availability of adequate highly skilled labour in the MEP team is most vital for the on-time completion of projects as MEP will be the first service to enter and complete in the fit out process. MEP installations in the fit-out work need a highly skilled work force as we won’t get a second chance to rectify anything. Hence, micro planning is the foremost element in fit out,” Ali notes.

    FROM MEP TO FM — THE HANDOVER

    MEP, FF&E providers do not always immediately involve facilities management service providers on projects, but the trend is changing. “Over the last decade Unicorn has completed more than 2,000 fit out projects across Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Umm Al Quwain, armed with a team of 250 skilled professionals,” Ali says adding the need to maintain the facilities led to the company opening its own dedicated facilities management arm. “Understanding the client’s need for the MEP service and maintenance after the defect liability period, an FM team has been operational under the group since 2010 and is called Safe Hands Facilities Management.”

    The subsidiary business division provides its services to office blocks and the retail sector. “Since our skill lies in the MEP space, we operate using the AMC (annual maintenance contract) model which includes MEP maintenance, cleaning, civil works maintenance, and duct cleaning,” he adds.

    Ali clarifies that the focus on MEP works has not reduced, and the endeavour continues to remain on offering strong services. “The effort is to ensure our clients get continued service even after the defect liability period. As we all know, MEP equipment requires frequent servicing and maintenance as time wears on. Appointing the FM team which can closely work with the contractors always makes it easier.”

    Regional fit-out specialists Zenith Furniture Industry, a Dubai-founded company, lists maintenance as one of the major concerns faced by its clients. Senior partner Bobby Cherian tells fmME: “Maintenance of furniture, floor and wall coverings, good indoor air quality, and security of the equipment is high on our clients’ list of priorities. Zenith uses the ‘made in UAE’ tag, and this is one of the reasons that allows us to offer extended warranty on our products. Around 50% of our clients are from the hospitality industry, which tend to be the most demanding because works have to be carried and delivered in a very short period of time.”

    Cherian adds: “[What makes it easier is] we have our own design, project management, HVAC and production team. We cover ourselves in all aspects of contractual agreements to avoid any midway complications. This also ensures that the technical know-how is well and truly in place, making it easier for the FM company that will take over maintenance — mostly the cleaning and housekeeping teams in this particular case.

More on ‘Meydan One’ – Dubai’s most ambitious project ever?

At Cityscape this week Meydan released more info on the mega mall that will be part of the project. Here’s what we know…

Dubai doesn’t do small. It’s a place that likes things bigger and bolder.

Already home to the world’s largest dancing fountain; tallest building (Burj Khalifa); largest artificial islands (the Palm Islands); and biggest natural flower garden (the Miracle Garden), then there’s Meydan One, which features even more superlatives and is arguably the emirate’s most ambitious project ever planned.

Developer Meydan has announced the launch of Meydan One featuring a 711m-high residential tower, a huge new mall complete with a retractable roof, the world’s largest indoor ski slope, a 25,000 sq metres indoor sports facility, the biggest dancing fountains in the world, and a beach.

Located between the Meydan Hotel and Al Khail Road, the project is scheduled to be completed “before 2020”, according to statement from the developer.

The mall will be made up of 30,000 square metres of indoor and outdoor space – with 529 retail stores, including two major department stores.

The huge shopping centre will have a retractable roof (as will the new and improved Ibn Battuta) that will be opened in the winter months to create an alfresco space. In fact, there’s a sample model of the roof at Cityscape this week if you want to check it out.

mall

There will also be 25,000 square metres of indoor sports facilities with sports fields and courts for football, basketball, volleyball, squash, racquetball, paddle ball, table tennis, badminton, indoor cricket, mixed martial arts, boxing, jogging, softball and baseball (so basically everything).

There will also be a golf driving range and the chance to ski and snowboard on the one-kilometre-long ski slope, which you can see in the picture above. It will be the world’s longest too: Ski Dubai is 400-metres-long.

Outside there will be football pitches, mountain biking trials (fake mountains we’re guessing?) and running tracks. There will also be a skateboard park, a BMX spot and what looks like a kayakable lake:

Oh, and the mall will be home to the world’s largest dancing water fountain, which will be 400 metres wide and 100 metres high (Dubai Fountain shoots water 152 metres into the air but is only 275 metres wide).

Meydan-One-Mall-Fountain

The Mall will also have 90 food outlets, a 20-screen cinema and a 400-metre Central Canyon (we’re not sure exactly what that is but we’re imagining it’s a trough of some sort) flanked by luxury stores.

WHAT ELSE YOU’LL FIND THERE

Tallest residential tower

The Dubai One, expected to be the world’s tallest residential tower, and its connected podium will include almost 900 residential apartments and a five-star hotel.

Sports and leisure

There will also be a yacht club and an indoor multi-purpose sport facility with a 5.3 kilometes of bicycle and jogging trails. Meanwhile outdoors, you’ll find tennis, football, basketball, volleyball, a baseball batting cage, lacrosse, and hockey facilities.

City beach

There’s even plans for a beach in the heart of the city. The 300m long beach will offer visitors swimming, paddle boats, sea kayaking, beach volleyball as well as direct access to a new waterpark.

“This development is a forward thinking, interactive enterprise geared towards the Dubai of tomorrow. The encouragement and support we have received in the past from our trusted partners will now help the Meydan One development come to life. The first phase will be completed as Dubai prepares to host the World Expo 2020,” said Saeed Humaid Al Tayer, Meydan’s Chairman.

Will This Become Dubai’s Coolest New Mall?

Another day, another new shopping destination announced for the city… gosh, isn’t living in Dubai just so tough?

However Meydan One isn’t going to be your average mall – not by a long shot.

In a city that likes to go big, this mega-development aims to go even bigger, and is set to feature the world’s longest indoor ski slope and the world’s largest dancing fountain.

What’s more, the sprawling shopping paradise is also going to include a nifty retractable roof, so you can peruse al fresco in the cooler months but be encased in delicious air conditioning come summer. It’s literally the best of both worlds.

Covering more than 30,000 square metres, Meydan One Mall will be made up of indoor and outdoor multipurpose space, with 529 shops, 90 eateries, two major department stores, and a huge hypermarket.

It’ll also become your new workout hotspot thanks to a 25,000-square-metre sports facility being built on-site.

Yep, that’s right – not only will you be able to pick up a new wardrobe and meet friends for a coffee, at Meydan One you’ll be able to have a knockabout on one of its many multi-purpose courts.

Activities catered for include football, basketball, volleyball, squash, table tennis, badminton, indoor cricket, mixed martial arts, skateboarding, mountain biking, boxing, jogging, softball, and a golf driving range (phew, we’re tired just reading about it).

Meydan One’s also looking to steal the Mall of the Emirates’ crown with its indoor ski slope, building a one-kilometre-long icy stretch to dwarf Ski Dubai’s longest run of 400 metres.

The mall, touted to open at the end of 2019, will also house a 20-screen cinema, a food court, 12,000 car parking spaces, and a 100-metre tall dancing water fountain.

However the project isn’t just about a mall – it’s actually just one part of an even bigger vision.

The Meydan One mega development was launched in August 2015 by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

Located in the area between the Meydan Hotel and Al Khail Road, the integrated city will include a 711m-high residential tower and a 300-metre-long beach.

“This development is a forward thinking, interactive enterprise geared towards the Dubai of tomorrow. The encouragement and support we have received in the past from our trusted partners will now help the Meydan One development come to life. The first phase will be completed as Dubai prepares to host the World Expo 2020,” said Saeed Humaid Al Tayer, Meydan’s Chairman.

Dubai tops best beaches near airports’ list

Dubai’s beaches rank top among the 10 best beaches near airports in the world, according to a list published by CNN Money.

“Dubai offers beaches for all tastes and budgets and, depending on the length of your layover, most are within reach of the airport,” CNN Money reports.

“The sparkling waters of the Arabian Gulf are closest at Al Mamzar Beach Park, a series of sandy horseshoe coves a few miles north of Dubai’s airport.

There, you’ll find warm water, shady umbrellas, and a selection of eateries and green spaces. It’s worth bearing in mind Mondays and Wednesdays are for women only. “South of the airport the closest option is Jumeirah Open Beach, a wide sandy shore open to the public. Further down the strip are Jumeirah Beach Park and Kite Beach, a kitesurfers’ haven near the Burj Al Arab,” the report adds.
