Project Description

Retail and Infrastructure Component – Man Made Island, Dubai

This development off the coast of Dubai, will be home to the largest Ferris wheel in the world, providing an instantly recognisable and iconic skyline.
Mike was the project leader for two of the major components on the island: the retail development surrounding the wheel and the provision of infrastructure services to the island including the roads, services, pedestrian bridge, ferry docks and the group rapid transit system (GRT) used to bring visitors to the island.
Currently still under construction, the project has been under Mike’s purview from the initial review of client budgets, through design and appointment of the numerous contractors and the ongoing post contract management of the project.
