An unrivalled destination
Located close to the Dubai Mall, The Address Boulevard Hotel in Dubai is set to become one of the city’s finest, luxury 5- star hotels and the sixth addition to the Address Hotels Resorts portfolio.
The hotel will be the second tallest in the city, standing at 370 metres high, and will feature a range of amenities including a swimming pool and fitness centre.
BuroHappold Engineering was engaged by EMAAR Properties to undertake a 3rd party peer review of the fire, life safety and MEP engineering carried out by other contractors on the project.
As part of the work undertaken, we carried out a review of the project design drawings and conducted a site inspection to ensure that the fire and life safety works were compliant to local and international regulations. Once our reports were completed, we issued comments and recommendations to the contractor.
The reviews carried out by our team highlighted any items that required recertification on site and provided reassurance to the client that on completion of our recommendations the MEP designs would be suitable for their intended purpose, and that the installation followed international best practice. We assessed the quality of the construction works for compliance with the contract documents, while ensuring that they had been carried out as detailed in the design. Our team also oversaw the connection of services, including gas, water and electricity, which are now all live on site. Our work also included reviewing the installation of the chilled water system, storm and foul water systems.
Now set to become one of the leading hotels in the city, The Address Residences will offer a home to many cultural events as well as high standard hotel accommodation. BuroHappold Engineering’s work has ensured that hotel guests will enjoy safe, secure, cutting edge facilities.
