The Story

Atlantis is an internationally-acclaimed multi-faceted themed resort development on the Palm Jumeirah in Dubai. The development consists of a five-star hotel with more than 1,500 rooms, a large convention centre with over 24,500 square feet of meeting and ballroom space, 6,000 square feet of retail village and a 525,000 square foot water park. Other amenities of the resort include a private sea beach, pools, spa and fitness centre, restaurants, bars and nightclubs, fully equipped children's play area, marine exhibits, tennis courts, running tracks and surface and underground parking. The construction phase lasted for approximately four years and included over 150 separate trade Contractor and packages. EllisDon formed an integral part of the joint Project Management/Construction Management team working directly for the Employer. EllisDon managed several key packages from design and tendering stage through to and construction, testing and commissioning and handover. We successfully managed the complicated Contractor package interfaces and coordination with the Consultants and other trades in order to achieve a quality final product which was delivered on time and on budget.
