Travel and Tourism - Jumeirah Beach Hotel, 5 star

Location: Jumeirah Beach Resort
Date: 1993-97
Architects: Atkins

In October 1993 WS Atkins began working on the Jumeirah Beach Resort project in Dubai. The scheme includes one of the world’s leading resort hotels, a landmark tower hotel and a state of the art themed water park, all on one 65 acre site on the shores of the Arabian Gulf in Dubai.

The design is intrinsic to the success of the resort, it is different, stylish, unique and makes a strong statement about where Dubai is going and what it aims to be, modern and vibrant.

WS Atkins have offices in over 25 countries and are involved in projects in over 60 countries throughout the world. With International business accounting for 13 % of turnover at £54.4m, and 13% of operating profit at £3.1m.

The group has worked internationally for the past 30 years. Nearly half of our overseas business is in the Asian economies, and a quarter in the Middle East.

For the whole of the development, WS Atkins was the lead consultant providing, design, architecture, engineering and construction management.WS Atkins established a completely self-sufficient and fully resourced design and construction management office on the construction site, 140 strong at its peak.

The Jumeirah Beach Hotel, the first stage of the development, was opened in November 1997. Designed in the shape of a breaking wave, the hotel has won:
“The best International Hotel of the Year Award 1999”
“No. 1 International Leisure attraction of the Year Award 1999”
“Best New Business Hotel of the Year Award 1999”
In its first year it had 80% occupancy, and now has near 100% occupancy even through the ‘off peak’ season, previously unheard of in Dubai.

Jumeirah Beach Resort was a phased development in three distinct parts:-
