ISG was tasked with fitting out and soundproofing the Roxy Cinema in Dubai’s trendy Box Park area.

As well as working on the four cinema screens – one with the latest ATMOS sound technology – the team also worked on installing a VIP function room, a reception area, lounge and seating areas for luxury dining, a café, a concessions bar, a fully operational kitchen, male and female toilets and mezzanine area with offices, server room and cinema equipment.

The project

Developing a small area to accommodate multiple screens proved challenging, however the team managed to use all the space available to deliver an excellent design with high quality finishes.

The soundproofing element also proved to be challenging, but with close attention to detail on all room dividing walls and ceilings and robust acoustic testing, the project progressed successfully.


ISG developed the existing cold shell and delivered a luxurious cinema complex with the latest sound technology and fine dining facilities.

The space was constructed using structural steel supports hanging from the main ceiling six metres above. The mezzanine area provides maintenance access and can be used for storing materials.

With the collaboration between ISG, FC Consult, Turner Townsend and the client Meraas, we successfully delivered the brief.
