Al Gharbia Physical Framework Master Plans
Al Gharbia, Abu Dhabi’s vast Western region, is the nexus of traditional and modern Emirati society. To balance the region’s traditional values with modern-day investment and tourism opportunities, Abu Dhabi’s Urban Planning Council created Plan Al Gharbia 2030, which envisions Al Gharbia as a model of responsible and sustainable development. Otak International managed and completed Physical Framework Master Plans, including an infrastructure master plan, for three of Al Gharbia’s main settlements: Liwa, Ruwais and Mirfa. Otak was responsible for infrastructure design, including utility network design and phasing, and coordination with utility companies, as well as overall project management, working with a team comprised of Sera Architects, RNL and Civitas.
