The Emirates Palace Hotel

By Subhi Kussad,

Located on the Abu Dhabi Corniche on a 1 mile stretch of private beach, its palatial, yet traditional arabic architecture and sheer scale have made it one of the most iconic buildings in the UAE.

It has 394 ornate hotel rooms and luxury suites which are decorated with gold and marble, 114 domes and over 1000 chandeliers.

Facilities include 14 restaurants, 2 swimming pools, a private marina and 85 hectares of landscaped gardens.

ACC was awarded the structures and finishes packages for the two winged, 400 room hotel and related covered parking and ramps. The structure works met a very tight schedule of fourteen months as it played a vital role for subsequent specialized contractors to commence their works. Our success on these packages translated into further awards to construct the Grand Arch, ancillary buildings, boundary wall, stone paving and landscaping works.
