The Saadiyat Beach Villas complex is located on the north-west shore of Saadiyat Island, Abu Dhabi. WME is delivering the scheme design for phase 2, providing structural, building services and AV/IT engineering.

In the second phase of development, 83 villas and townhouses, plus a community centre, are being configured to make the most of the completed infrastructure and utilities installations that were based on an earlier master plan.

Working closely with architect DSA and our client, TDIC, our consultants are helping ensure that the most successful layouts and systems go forward. The buildings are concrete frame, tailored to the open architectural forms envisaged. Staircases, for example, are designed with no intermediate support and slim open risers.

All buildings are Estidama Pearl 1 compliant for Abu Dhabi.
