Gyproc, a leading manufacturer and supplier of sustainable, innovative, lightweight interior building systems, has been signed up to provide drywall partition and ceiling requirements for a new Sofitel hotel in Dubai.

The SO/ Uptown Dubai will feature a 188-key five-star luxury hotel and 229 signature SO/branded residences.

Working closely with its partners Interiors International and MRFS Interior Decoration under the coordination of Besix, Gyproc will supply a wide range of solutions for the property.

The ‘SO/‘ is Accor Hotels’ luxury brand and this will be its Middle East debut. Designed by AS+GG and constructed by Six Construct, Uptown Tower will be a LEEDGold certified building. 

The Uptown Tower will be 340 m high when complete and will sit at the heart of the Uptown Dubai district (previously ‘Burj 2020’ district) which will be a 24-hour neighbourhood brimming with dining and high-end retail outlets, hotels, and a central entertainment plaza.
