Arena Middle East & Asia were asked to build a temporary welcome center for the opening of the RAK Zipline at Jebel Jais in the UAE

At a staggering 1,934m high, is now the longest zipline in the world. Time was of the essence with this project, as the initial inquiry from
client RAK TDA came in on a Sunday night, we received confirmation on a Wednesday and began work a couple of days later.

Our two main challenges were the short build time – two and a half weeks for a very high-quality interior fit-out – and getting materials up the mountain where the zip line begins. We used the ASD System for the welcome center, complete with full interior fit-out, design, furniture and a 100sqm outdoor terrace overlooking the mountains. We also built permanent bathrooms with a temporary fitting.
