Burj Al Arab Terrace, Project is a World First in Marine and Off Site Construction
29-5-2016_ gulfnews.com/ A world-first in marine and off-site construction, the Burj Al Arab Terrace is an outdoor luxury leisure facility that offers a one-of-a-kind hospitality experience.
Jumeirah Group, the global luxury hotel company and a member of Dubai Holding, manages Burj Al Arab, one of the world’s most luxurious hotels and a prominent landmark of Dubai.
The architectural form of the Terrace has been designed to reflect the shape of Burj Al Arab, creating a fusion of sophisticated, contemporary structures and tranquil stretches of water. Linked by a central walkway, flanked on either side by crystalline beaches and private cabanas, it gives the effect of a stylised tropical forest canopy, with contrasting areas of dappled light and shade.
Shaikh Ahmad Bin Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Chairman of the Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Foundation; Shaikh Mansour Bin Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum; Chairman of Dubai Holding Mohammad Abdullah Al Gergawi; and Director-General of Dubai Protocol Department Khalifa Saeed Sulaiman and a host of senior officials and tourism industry leaders attended the opening event.
Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid toured the outdoor luxury leisure facility and was briefed on the construction phases, design, building technologies and the methods used to transport the ‘artificial island’ from Finland to Dubai.
Shaikh Mohammad praised the concept of the project, which he said, represents the highest innovation and creativity in design and implementation. He said innovation and excellence are a hallmark of projects implemented in the UAE and Dubai is keen to encourage such creativity to achieve progress in all fields.
Shaikh Mohammad further said: “A few days ago, we inaugurated the world’s first 3D printed office, and today we are opening Burj Al Arab Terrace, the first man-made luxury beach facility of its kind. Both projects reflect Dubai’s vision to achieve global leadership in innovation and excellence.”
