Ritz Carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal

Location: Abu Dhabi, UAE
Client: Abu Dhabi National Hotels

Strategically redeveloped to leverage its location, this five-star, Venetian-style village resort includes a 400-room hotel, restaurants and bars, a marina, underground garages and utilities, a 3,000-square-meter spa, furnished apartments and VIP chalets that resemble offshore “floating houses.” As lead consultant, Otak was responsible for the development of the design and the administration of the construction contract, which required the project team to work collaboratively with the client, sub-consultants, statutory authorities and hotel operator to meet requirements. Otak’s problem-solving approach provided additional value engineering and supported the defense and prevention of contractor claims.
