The UKs Faithful+Gould has been officially appointed to provide integrated project management services for the construction of the Royal Atlantis Resort and Residences on Dubais Palm Jumeirah.
Faithful+Gould says it is acting as the clients representative to project manage the entire process for the procurement of the design and construction of the project from briefing through to commissioning and occupation.
The project is being developed by the Investment Corporation of Dubai (ICD) and Bahamas-based Kerzner International, and companies have been invited to bid for the main construction contract by 21 June.
Known as the Royal Atlantis Resort and Residences, the hotel building will be built next to the existing Atlantis hotel, which opened in 2008 on the crescent of the Palm Jumeirah. The new 800-room, 46-storey hotel will be managed by Kerzner. The development will also include 250 luxury residences, as well as retail outlets. The property is scheduled for completion by 2017.
The New York-based Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates is the architect for the project. London-based GA Design has been appointed to do the interiors.
