JW Marriott Marquis Hotel

Upon completion in 2012, this awe-inspiring development was the world’s second tallest hotel, with twin-tower skyscrapers standing 355 metres up into Dubai’s skyline.

BG&E provided structural engineering services, which comprised the following key features:

  • twin concrete-frame towers on piled raft foundations;
  • glazed guest lifts in the 80-storey towers;
  • expansive podium areas with tall, unrestrained tower columns;
  • stability via the use of a concrete core and outrigger walls;
  • transfer structures at first hotel floors above the podium; and
  • post-tensioned flat plate slabs.

This timeless luxury hotel features 1,364 guest rooms, 240 suites, four Presidential Suites, a banquet hall, an auditorium, 18 specialty retail stores, 19 restaurants and a day spa, all surrounded by perfectly manicured landscaping.
