Kempinski Hotel, The Wave

Kempinski Hotel, The Wave is a forthcoming, five-star luxury beachfront complex which will form part of the first integrated resort and residential development in the greater Muscat region. Along with 309 rooms and suites and 68 serviced apartments, the hotel will offer fine dining options, meeting facilities and swimming pools, plus a spa, gym, ballroom, kids club and bowling facility.


Beachside Location Calls for Innovative Foundations

We are providing multi-disciplinary engineering design and consultancy for the project, including structural engineering, MEP, fire engineering, drainage and a range of specialist services.

The proximity of the development to the sea and poor soil conditions, coupled with the high cost of piling in the region, called for innovative foundation solutions, tailored to the specific ground conditions of each building. These included dynamic compaction of the soil topped by raft foundations for beachside structures and stone columns to support buildings further from the sea.


The geometric, concrete and steel ballroom structure is dense and heavy, with wide openings at the bottom. The façade is supported at the base by a difficult configuration of diagonal concrete elements, requiring complex calculations of the load paths to carry the weight of this unique building.
