“Ongoing works are vertical transportation, interior fit out, stage engineering, joinery, façade, roofing and metal. There are also other installations such as water features, kitchen equipment, auditorium seating, fit out, MEP and finishing,” the company said.

Dubai Opera overlooks the Burj Khalifa and Dubai Fountain. It includes a proscenium arch theatre, an acoustic concert hall and a 2,000 square metre flat floor event space.
