5 tower residential development in Abu Dhabi.

ADG’s appointment was for the full Civil & Structural design of this 5 tower, combined podium, residential development in Abu Dhabi.

Block C, Marina Square

STRUCTURAL

Al Reem Island, Abu Dhabi

The towers average 46 stories and the development also includes 5 luxury villas situated at podium level.

The 5 towers were designed together with a combined 21 acre basement & podium. All slabs were designed as post-tensioned flat slabs for speed of construction and ease of coordination.

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

Simplified post-tensioned flat slab designs throughout the entire development significantly decreased coordination and construction time.

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.
