Engineering consultancy WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff has been appointed by Meraas Holding as the lead consultant for the Bvlgari Resort and Residences complex in Dubai.
The resort will contain a 101-room hotel, eight penthouses, 15 mansions and 165 apartments, as well as a 50-berth marina and yacht club. It is being built on Jumeirah Bay Island off the coast of Jumeirah Beach Road and is due for completion in 2017.
WSP’s role involves the design of all structures, roads, highways, utilities and safety systems. Project director Mark Farley said the firm had already achieved “a few important milestones already and are well on track for delivery in 2017.”
Dubai-based contractor Alec was appointed to build the resort in October last year.
