The company stated that the project was delivered on specification and within budget
International construction consultancy company Linesight celebrated the launch of Marriott’s W Dubai – The Palm, for which it provided a host of consultancy services since joining the project from its concept stage in 2012.
The scope of work included successfully coasting and managing a number of design upgrades, providing a full spectrum of pre- and post- contract services, and advising on procurement strategies throughout the development.
The five-star hotel spans 100,000 sqm and consists of three buildings across Palm Jumeirah’s western coast. Consisting of 350 luxury rooms and suites managed by Marriott International, the hotel also features a clubhouse, a 465m beach, several pools and restaurants, landscaped gardens, back-of-house areas and state-of-the-art security, a statement from Linesight said.
Ciaran McCormack, regional director for the Middle East at Linesight, said: “We are proud to have contributed to the delivery of this outstanding new addition to Palm Jumeirah. It is a credit to the engineers and designers for their hard work and shows Linesight’s commitment to budget maintenance and effective cost control, without compromising on specifications or quality.”
“Pre-opening design changes typically trigger escalating costs, but modifications were made using Linesight’s value engineering analysis. To date we have worked on over 44,000 hotel rooms across multiple continents and applying that extensive national and international hotel chain experience was essential to successfully delivering this project and ensuring a high-quality outcome for the client,” concluded McCormack.
