WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff appointed to the next stages of The Royal Atlantis Resort and Residences in Dubai

WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff has been appointed to provide engineering consultancy for the next stages of The Royal Atlantis Resort and Residences in Dubai by Kerzner International.

 

The Royal Atlantis Resort and Residences in Dubai

Located on the crescent of The Palm and adjacent to the existing Atlantis, The Royal Atlantis Resort will stand 46 storeys tall and feature spectacular views of the ocean, The Palm itself and the Dubai city skyline. The design of the building’s complex structure requires an innovative engineering approach that utilises a hybrid of concrete, steel, and ‘post tension concrete construction’ techniques.

The project will include:

- an approximate total investment of US$1.4 billion in the resort expansion and amenities
- 780  new guest rooms and suites
- 232 luxury Residences
- exciting restaurants and entertainment experiences, as well as new retail offerings
- a swimming pool 90 metres above The Palm, offering unrivalled Dubai city views

We have been involved in the earlier concept and schematic design stages of the project. This subsequent appointment involves design development, construction documentation and tender support, namely the following services: structural, building services, vertical transportation, security, ICT & Communications, utilities, parking, geotechnical, waste management, façade engineering and access, and sustainability services. The architect is Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates (KPF) and interior design is by GA Design for The Resort  and SM Design for The Residences.

WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff’s UK head of building structures, Kamran Moazami said: “This is a world class project in terms of location, design and ambition, and WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff has demonstrated how clients could benefit from our global expertise in bringing together a holistic approach where a number of engineering specialisms are required. The distinctive architecture, with its numerous interconnecting bridges, presents a variety of engineering design challenges that will create a unique addition to the Dubai skyline.”
