UAE-based resort developer Mirage Leisure & Development and lead consultant WSP in the Middle East have achieved a major construction miletone clocking 23 million working hours without a Lost Time Injury (LTI) at the Address Residences Jumeriah Resort project in Dubai.
WSP in the Middle East is the lead consultant, architect of record, structural engineer, security consultant, and fire and life safety consultant for the project.
Once completed, Address Residences Jumeriah Resort will feature a 217-hotel room and suite five-star Address Hotel, 443 branded serviced apartments, and 478 residential units together with spa, high-end food and beverage outlets, and extensive landscaped areas over a large podium and extended ground floor level resort landscape environment that connects directly to JBR beachfront.
This milestone has been reached through the hard work and commitment of the team and strong, visible leadership by the management, said the statement from Mirage Leisure & Development.
The outstanding achievement is even more impressive given the engineering complexities of the project, which included hoisting a 650-tonne skybridge to the top of the 77-storey structure, it stated.
Project Director Andreas Schoppe said: "Mirage Leisure & Development is thrilled to have collaborated with WSP Middle East to construct this exceptional milestone for the Address Residences Jumeriah Resort project."
"By bringing WSP Middle East’s world-class Health & Safety acumen to the fore, this has enabled the client, contractor, and consultant teams to deliver a high-quality product for Al Ain Properties – the developer of the project – and this has raised the bar for regional and international best practices when to comes to mitigating potential hazards and challenges on complex sites," he added.
WSP in the Middle East Project Director Tom Hoban said: "To achieve a milestone like this requires a remarkable health and safety effort from everybody involved."
"With strong support from higher management, along with a robust focus on leadership, teamwork, cohesive risk assessment, and clearly defined communications, WSP Middle East managed to influence and embed the robust Health & Safety culture required to maximize site safety," he stated.
According to him, Address Residences Jumeriah Resort’s tower is a distinctive addition to Dubai’s incredible skyline.
"We are proud to be making a significant contribution to the city’s health and safety landscape as a leader in the construction and engineering realm," he noted.
Joint at the upper levels, and topped with rooftop VIP Gazebos overlooking a bar and the world’s highest infinity pool, Address Residences Jumeriah Resort will offer breathtaking views across notable Dubai landmarks such as Jumeirah Beach Residence, Palm Jumeriah, and Bluewaters Island, he added.
