In a joint venture between Six Construct and Ssangyong, this mega project is set to be completed at the end of 2019. The Royal Atlantis Resort and Residences is a mixed use hotel and residential two-tower complex that will rise to a height of 182 meters.

An ambitious, luxurious and versatile project

Both towers are connected by a 45-m-long sky bridge. Each tower consists of 3 reinforced concrete sub-towers. The complex will offer 791 guest rooms and suites as well as 231 serviced residences. It will also feature private gardens, an 85-m-high sky garden, an infinity pool overlooking the Gulf and Dubai, a cutting-edge fitness centre and modern spa therapies. In preparation for Dubai’s Expo 2020, the resort is considered one of Dubai’s largest projects.

There will be 65 outdoor pools, 1.7 km of private beach, with a choice of 36 different restaurants and water experiences. The Royal Atlantis will be the new landmark of Dubai, building on the success of Atlantis The Palm.


Technical challenge

Each tower consists of 3 reinforced concrete sub-towers. These are connected by a 45m long sky bridge that will be built at a lower level and lifted in place by a strand jacking method. This is planned to be completed before the end of 2018.

Given the complexity and volume of the structure it will require a formidable performance from BESIX to deliver the project within a timespan of less than 3 years. A particular challenge consists of completing the structure of the huge lobby and podium at an early stage. This is a prerequisite in order to accelerate the start-up of fit-out works which are exceptionally demanding in terms of both volume and quality.

We are pleased to be part of this development which is set to dominate the Palm Jumeirah skyline, setting a new precedent in the hospitality and tourism industry, while satisfying the demand for an ambitious delivery of world class projects in Dubai.
