Dubai firm builds Dom Rep theme park

Dubai-based leisure and entertainment turnkey solutions provider, Select Contracts, has successfully delivered the conceptual design and feasibility study for a 700 acre leisure and entertainment development to the Government of the Dominican Republic. The landmark project, which is being championed by President Dr. Leonel Fernández and numerous Major League Baseball players, involves a theme park, water park, family entertainment centre, hotels, golf course, villas, baseball stadium and a hall of fame. The project will be home to the first Caribbean theme park as well as celebrating the country’s contribution to baseball.

Select Contracts has been appointed to see the project through from concept to operations and is also a stakeholder in the project, which represents another stepping stone for the vertically integrated company as they seek to become globally renowned for their leisure and entertainment expertise and knowledge.

Sales and Marketing Manager Sanjay Murthy said ‘We have an ambitious strategy for growth within our specific areas of expertise and projects such as the baseball theme park can only help us to achieve these goals. Leisure and entertainment are two very desirable areas for development and our vast experience in these areas is invaluable for our clients. This certainly put us in good stead when we were chosen for this iconic project in the Dominican Republic.’

Select Contracts will have full-time project staff in the country from early 2007 and expect the park to be open in the latter part of 2009.
