Aurecon plays key role in Dubai luxury hotel project

DUBAI, December 17, 2016

Aurecon, a global engineering and infrastructure advisory company, said it has played a key role in the successful completion of the new 430-room Jumeirah Al Naseem, the fourth luxury hotel within the Madinat Jumeirah Resort development in Dubai, UAE.

The Jumeirah Al Naseem links with the three existing Jumeirah resorts, which occupy a prime spot on the stunning local coastline.

The Resort, Dubai’s largest, was recently named in the Top 3 hotels of the Middle East and Africa by Travel + Leisure magazine.
Aurecon started work on the Jumeirah Al Naseem in December 2012 when the company was invited to collaborate on a range of engineering disciplines by leading development and management company, Mirage Leisure and Development, said a statement from the company.

The company had earlier collaborated with Mirage on several previous developments within the Madinat Jumeirah Resort. Others involved in the project included South African architects Northpoint, which delivered the concept, and the Dubai office of Woods Bagot, which served as executive architect.  
Having been awarded several engineering disciplines within the project, Aurecon began its design work in 2013.

Civil and structural work was led by the local Dubai office with support from Aurecon’s office in Cape Town, while acoustics design, vertical transportation, marine design, waste management and geotechnical design was handled by experts in other global offices in Australia and South Africa.
Innovative structural engineering was needed to ensure Dubai’s newest tourism hotspot, the Jumeirah Al Naseem, took full advantage of its spectacular location.

Construction of the Jumeirah Al Naseem was announced in late 2012 by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

At the time, he emphasised how Dubai’s tourism infrastructure must match the UAE’s increasingly strong position as an international tourism hub. Global infrastructure and engineering advisory firm Aurecon rose to the design challenges, helping ensure the venue delivers a truly five-star experience for its guests.

Wouter Brand, the technical director of buildings and the project director for Aurecon’s work on the Jumeirah Al Naseem, said the company’s previous experience in the region, particularly in hotels and resorts, proved invaluable in making this project a success.
"The opening of the new 430-room Jumeirah Al Naseem, the fourth luxury hotel within the Madinat Jumeirah Resort development, gives substance to the Ruler of Dubai’s ambition," he remarked.
“Our knowledge of the local construction industry was as important as our ability to provide engineering solutions to the many design challenges of the project,” stated Brand.

“Creating a seamless connection with the rest of the resort was essential, as was making the most of its geographic location, lying across the water from the spectacular Burj Al Arab Jumeirah and delivering incredible sea views to all guest rooms,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
