The building will include smart features and free wi-fi

Approval has been granted for work to begin on the smart main building of Dubai Safari at a total cost of Dhs 151m ($41m).

State news agency WAM quote Dubai Municipality deputy director general Essa Al Haj Al Maidoor as saying the building would include smart, secure and environmentally friendly services.

These include the use of treated water renewable energy, interactive software features for visitors, surveillance cameras, and free wi-fi.

The building, which is due to be completed at the end of the year, will also feature a theatre for hosting events to accommodate a thousand people, a clean energy production garden and an interactive garden for children.

The Dhs 1bn ($272.2m) Dubai Safari project will replace Dubai Zoo.

Once completed it will host 1,000 animals from around the world at its site in Dubai’s Al Warqaa district opposite the Dragon Mart off the Dubai-Hatta Highway.
