UltraScape paves the ultimate address in Dubai

Tanseeq LLC and UltraScape have partnered once again to see the installation of 15,000sqm of paving at the Downtown Development Opera district including the Opera Grand – the ultimate address in Dubai.


Following on from the resounding success at the beautiful Dubai Opera, UltraScape flowpoint tropical has once again been specified to install 15,000sqm of paving at the Opera Grand, the new icon of the Opera District.

‘Opera Grand provides easy access to the vibrant Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard, the majestic Burj Khalifa and the awe-inspiring Dubai Fountain.’

The stunning 70-storey towers are the epitome of luxury living. From one-bedroom opulent apartments to podium level townhouses, rooftop pool, gym, health club and theatre rooms, Opera Grand offers its residents the ‘perfect blend of luxury and culture.’

The Challenge

The soaring temperatures of Dubai provides the biggest challenge for all building materials. Utilising materials that will not only withstand the heavy footfall of the Opera Grand, but will perform as specified, even in hot temperatures, was paramount to the success.

It was also critical to Jacobs, the consultant working at this incredible location, that the chosen jointing compound had a durable, yet beautiful finish that would fit within the perfectly orchestrated architecture.

The Solution

UltraScape and Tanseeq LLC have partnered regularly on several projects with UltraScape delivering complete confidence and reassurance every time. Familiar with the outstanding performance of flowpoint tropical grout (fully compliant with BS7533), the contractor Proscape LLC were confident they could get the job done efficiently with the desired result.

UltraScape flowpoint tropical is a flowable grout which allows for large areas of paving to be grouted quickly. Suitable for joints from 3mm to 50mm and as deep as 200mm, flowpoint has been developed over a number of years to provide a durable finish which will not crack or stain – even in the extremely hot temperatures often experienced in Dubai.

With an initial set after just 15 minutes, and a walk on time of one hour, it is unsurprising that flowpoint tropical has become synonymous with fast application, cost-effective and robust jointing.


Residents of Opera Grand are now enjoying a beautifully paved entrance every time they arrive and leave their breath-taking home.

Opera Grand is the latest in a long line of prestigious projects for UltraScape’s Mortar Paving System in Dubai. Other projects include Residences Sky View, MBR City, City Walk and Dubai Opera House.
