In 1999 Uno's became our first client when we set up office in Dubai and designed their first restaurant on Sheikh Zayed Road. The second site followed in 2000 at Deira City Centre and was designed and open for trading in ten weeks. To achieve this we needed to work closely with the client, contractor - Al Tayer Stocks, landlord - MAF and basically minimising the decision making process and the number of parties involved in this. We've since refurbished the DCC store in 2008 and the most recent store was completed in 2009 at the Dubai Mall. We're currently working on stores in KSA and UAE as our relationship with the client goes into it's 17th year.
