WSP provided the management skills and engineering expertise for the provision of infrastructure, both visible and unseen, such as pipes and cables. This also included project management of the infrastructure systems for moving and supporting the volume of tourists, day-trippers and workers that would populate the Trunk, The Fronds and Crescent of The Palm Jumeirah Island Development. A state-of-the-art, ultra-modern urban monorail transit system, with roomy air-conditioned trains and stations, augments the copious road arrangements.
Effective program control was essential so as not to delay third party developers including Nakheel’s prestige clients, such as Atlantis. We delivered permanent vehicular access and carried all services from spine to the Crescent ahead of schedule, ensuring no negative impact to Nakheel’s client relationships.
WSP also worked closely with Nakheel to ensure that marine life in the area was protected during construction.
