ATM provided coastal engineering and marina design services for Nareel Island, a reclaimed island in Abu Dhabi, UAE. Located near the Emirates Palace and Etihad Towers on the Mussafah Channel, Nareel Island will be one of the most esteemed private residential developments in Abu Dhabi.
ATM‘s scope of works for the island development included master planning of the waterfront areas, planning and design for a private 76-berth marina and boat lifts, dredging and reclamation design, design of beaches and rock revetments, and construction phase services including site attendance. ATM also performed numerical modelling to study the site hydrodynamics. These modelling works were essential to understand the flushing potential for the lagoons, establish the design of culverts, to assess the safety of swimming areas, and to set the elevations and design criteria for the island.
