Residential 42 storey development in Abu Dhabi.

ADG were appointed for the full design of the Civil and Structural design elements of this 2 tower, combined podium, residential development in Abu Dhabi with towers of 42 stories.

Block B, Marina Square

STRUCTURAL

Al Reem Island, Abu Dhabi

The development also included townhouses situated at podium level.

The 2 towers were designed together with a combined townhouse and podium, and basement structures. All slabs were designed as post-tensioned flat slabs for speed of construction & ease of coordination.

The design was based around a systemized construction methodology that ensured the structures could be completed within the target time required.

The use of post-tensioned flat slabs throughout the development ensured ease of coordination and a decrease in standard construction timelines.

All towers were constructed on bored pile foundations however, with the adoption of new pile testing methods ADG were able to demonstrate, and gain local authority approvals, to increase the capacity of the piles by 50% over the previously adopted norms used throughout Abu Dhabi in previous years.
