This stunning building is a $150m, 35 storey, five star hotel in Jeddah, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The project consists of a 320 bed hotel and 50 serviced apartments along with associated facilities.
CampbellReith provided structural, civil and geotechnical engineering services for this project. The hotel site is on the Red Sea Coast, which presents one of the most challenging ground conditions for foundation design in an Earthquake zone.
Buildings of this height are referred to as ‘super tall’ in Saudi Arabia due to the complexity of the strata and the earthquake conditions. It was also proposed to construct a double storey basement underneath the building for car parking.
