Nakheel Mall

Lead engineer
In the UAE, our associate practice WME is lead engineer for Nakheel Mall, providing structural, building services and fire engineering, plus sustainability and AV/IT consultancy.

The 450,000 sq m concrete-frame project is located in the ‘trunk’ of Dubai’s Palm Island and occupies three basement levels, three floors and a roof level. Its flat slabs and column-free spaces are supported on existing piles, requiring close coordination with geotechnical consultants.

The number of cores in the building have been minimised, and escalators provide circulation. The plant is housed on a 25,000 sq m mezzanine located below roof level, and connected to the facade for air handling. The restaurant areas at roof level are separately serviced.

The project delivers 150,000 sq m of retail space and will be completed in 2018.
