Under the terms of the agreement, DSI will procure, install, test and commission all MEP works at the iconic shopping mall, which will be completed by 2015. The Mall of the Emirates recently announced its multi-stage redevelopment project at an estimated cost of over US$272mn.

Khaldoun Tabari, vice chairman of PJSC DSI, said, "The new contract for the redevelopment of Mall of the Emirates underscores our proven track record in offering specialised MEP services for large-scale shopping malls.

"With our expertise in MEP works and general contracting, cutting edge technologies and vast resources, DSI is well-positioned to undertake significant construction and infrastructure projects as Dubai gears up to host the 2020 World Expo."
