An ambitious project to become the new home to 120,000 people and used by 190,000 people daily. Badrah will be located on the eastern edge of the Waterfront development along the Jebel Ali coastline. Next door to the Palm Jebel Ali and the Crescent Island, Badrah is planned for the gateway to the entire development.
Consisting of several hundred buildings, ranging from two storey townhouses to
70-storey high towers, Badrah aims to be a sustainable and affordable community consisting of four individual districts: Areej, Shaza, Abeer and Taib. Ramboll were appointed in April 2007 by the lead consultant and architect to provide engineering design and consultancy for stages 1, 2, 3, 4 and 13 in the Areej District.
The Ramboll team faced the challenge of setting an innovative and efficient design precedent for the rest of the city. In addition to strategies to ensure the project was adequately resourced and staffed throughout all phases, the teams also strive to maintain successful delivery in accordance with a challenging project programme.
