25 March, 2015
A UK-based architecture firm has been commissioned by Dubai Airports to support the $32 billion expansion of Dubai World Central, the emirate’s newest aviation hub. Leslie Jones Architecture will work on the commercial design strategy for the Al Maktoum International Airport at DWC, it said in a statement. The appointment comes months after Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, endorsed the AED120 billion expansion of DWC, which will ultimately accommodate more than 200 million passengers a year.
