The 2,330-sq-m Picnic Square ... to be transformed into a family-focused dining area.

Summertown Interiors, a  leading UAE sustainable fit-out contractor, says it has been awarded the contract for the refurbishment of the food court, Picnic Square, within the Times Square Center in Dubai.

One of the newest community-oriented malls in Dubai, Times Square Center is a uniquely compact community shopping destination which offers a wide selection of renowned international and boutique brands.

Summertown Interiors says over the next few months, it will collaborate with the mall’s management team to transform the existing 2,330-sq-m food court space into an exciting new family-focused dining area. It is likely to be handed over in the third quarter.

In line with Times Square Center’s sustainability focus, Summertown says it aims to achieve the green building certification Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) for the new artisan food dining area. The global certification encourages the design, construction, operations and maintenance of resource-efficient, high-performing, healthy buildings, said the top fitout contractor.

Once completed, Picnic Square will be an exciting artisanal, deli-style dining area with family-friendly seating zones; including stylish ‘private pods’ for mothers to feed their babies in privacy, which will complement the functional open plan design, it adds.
