Nikki Beach Hotel and Resort

Two phases
Off the coast of Dubai on the reclaimed island of Pearl Jumeirah, Meraas is developing a new beach resort complex and residential area. The first phase was completed in March 2016, with the second phase following in March 2017.

We are using Building Information Modelling to deliver civil, structural, building services, infrastructure and AV/IT engineering for the whole project, as well as undertaking site supervision.

Included in the resort are villas, bungalows, residences and a hotel, and a beach club providing sports, entertainment, dining, retail and leisure facilities.

The design is contemporary, using slimline structures that help keep views clear. All plant has been placed away from roofs. Irregular and complex building shapes have been achieved using concrete framing, with some steel frame roof and other elements.

Structural responses include the use of transfer structures, long cantilevers, irregular floor framing and very slender vertical elements. The project is Dubai Green Building compliant.

Working closely with main contractor Brookfield Multiplex has enabled fast track execution of the project on site.
