Mott MacDonald works for Al Raha Beach Development
Mott MacDonald, the global engineering, management and development consultancy, was commissioned by Aldar Properties PJSC as boulevard bridges superstructure designer for the Al Raha Beach Development in Abu Dhabi at the beginning of 2010.
Through an extended contract, Mott MacDonald will provide detailed designs for the 12 bridge structures carrying the central tree lined boulevard and light rail that will service the development’s offices, residential units, hotels, schools, hospitals and public recreation facilities over the grand canal.
This contract will see Mott MacDonald’s professionals act as independent verifiers for the designs of the boulevard bridge steelwork (by Cimolai SpA); as well as design concrete deck slabs for each bridge and an A-Frame to support one of the boulevard bridges and an adjacent bridge structure; and provide independent foundation design review.
Michael Barron, Mott MacDonald’s project director said, "The complex structure of the boulevard bridges requires analysis and design services which can only be provided by highly skilled engineers." Michael added, "This role continues Mott MacDonald’s successful involvement in the Al Raha Beach development for Aldar Properties PJSC which last year also saw the design of the 6 avenue bridges, a comprehensive review of the public realm design and this successful track record demonstrates the world class skills and local knowledge we bring to all of our projects."
