Rosewood Abu Dhabi

Complex power distribution to meet multiple needs

Rosewood Abu Dhabi is a landmark luxury waterfront development on the emirate’s fast-evolving Al Maryah Island. The 34-storey hotel contains 189 guestrooms and suites, around 140 serviced apartments, a spa, fitness centre and pool, plus high-end shops and an array of signature restaurants.

We designed MEP and fire and life safety services for the hotel and also carried out the supervision of these services during the construction phase.

The Rosewood’s mixed-use nature complicated the distribution of power and water. Our metering strategy had to take into account the need to separate the utilities supplies for the hotel, apartments, shopping and restaurant facilities, necessitating the installation of three separate risers.

A further challenge was handling over 80 design changes requested by the client during the construction phase, further complicated by fact the architect’s design office was based in San Francisco, USA.
