ADG were appointed for the full design of the Civil and Structural design elements of the 2 tower, combined podium, residential development in Abu Dhabi with towers of 42 stories. The development also included townhouses situated at podium level.

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

Al Reem Island, Abu Dhabi

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

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.

The project included interface with marine structures and a foreshore redevelopment which ADG provided the lead consultant role with specialist subconsultants for marine works and geotechnical.
