WSP and Parsons Brinckerhoff to work on new Dubai luxury resort

WSP and Parsons Brinckerhoff has been appointed to provide engineering consultancy for the next stages of The Royal Atlantis Resort and Residences in Dubai.

The firm has already worked with developer Kerzner International on the early design stages, and its latest appointment includes design development, construction documentation and tender support as well as engineering and environmental consultancy.

The 46-storey resort, by architects Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, will be on The Palm in Dubai. The construction will use a mix of concrete, steel, and post tension concrete construction techniques.
