Abu Dhabi Port Cruise Terminal covers an area of 535 hectares and contains 21 berths with depths ranging from 6 to 15 metres and a total berth length of 4,375 metres. It’s one of four major ports in the emirates.

This project involved the construction of a proposed cruise terminal at the Abu Dhabi Zayed Port district. The civil works included some pavement and roadworks, stormwater drainage and sewerage (foul drainage) design. The project was proposed in the heart of the existing Port infrastructure. This raised several challenges with the presence of existing services and infrastructure.

Key technical challenges

RBG were involved in the preliminary stages of the civil and structural design of the proposed development including developing a co-ordinated solution to overcome the challenges presented by the existing site conditions.
