icubed consulting completed the detailed design and documentation of the first large scale fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) boardwalk installed in the United Arab Emirates. The 2km boardwalk is located on Al Jubail Island, Abu Dhabi and will become a hub for over 5,000 residents in the future.
Some key features of the project included a multi-storey viewing tower constructed using FRP sections and educational nodes including floating pontoons and multiple viewing and rest areas. icubed were also responsible for the detailed
design and report preparation of the driven pile system and elevated walkways. The detailed design component of the project was active in our office for two months with multiple engineers working on the computer modelling, calculations package and following international standards.
The overall town centre will feature apartments, an office park, office villas, and a hotel. The project will also see the planting of new mangrove forests and add over 10 kilometres of canals and other new marine habitat that will be home to migratory birds, fish populations, sea turtles, and gazelles.
