Nominated by Aurecon, Dubai’s Jumeirah Al-Naseem was named Hospitality Project of the Year at the Construction Week Awards 2017.

The resort was described by our judges as an immensely complicated development to successfully deliver.

One panellist was impressed with the project team’s ability to construct effectively within a challenging natural environment, not to mention the development’s geotechnical and marine-related complexity.

Commenting on Jumeirah Al-Naseem, Ermis Marques, Aurecon’s regional director for the Middle East, said: “It’s a fantastic project that complements Madinat Jumeirah – another development with which we were involved. It also connects nicely with Wild Wadi and Jumeirah Beach Hotel.

“Jumeirah Al-Naseem has been a fantastic team effort. The project was complex and intricate, but it’s turned out to be a great result. Aurecon is very proud to have acted as the structural engineer for the development,” Marques added.
