UK-based Leslie Jones Architecture has been commissioned to work on the commercial design strategy for Dubai’s Al Maktoum International Airport.
The company is establishing a strategy to ensure that airport businesses will be positioned to engage with the anticipated high volumes of global travellers.
Simon Scott, head of international business at the firm will be leading the project.
He said: “Leslie Jones’ appointment reflects the firm’s technical skill and experience in delivering leading mixed-use design solutions for specialist global projects.
“A profound understanding of operators’ challenges, within an aviation context, is critical when designing such an environment. Our design strategy will address this by supporting the creation of an integrated commercial environment that will elevate consumer engagement and optimise space intelligently.”
