Burj Al Arab terrace, the North Deck

Etteplan has been one of the ca. 100 Finnish companies to contribute to the Burj Al Arab Terrace delivered by Finnish developer and construction specialist ADMARES Oy.

The floating island weights 5000 tons and covers an area of  10 000 m2. The terrace, called as the North Deck, has a 612 m2 large freshwater pool and a saltwater infinity pool of 828 m2. The unique terrace has 10 million mosaic tiles in the pool area and 1 million kilos of white sand on its beach. It also includes private cabanas, sun loungers, VIP-areas, a retail space and restaurant.

The terrace left Rauma Marine Constructions, where it was built, in January 2016 and was opened for guests on May 26 ,2016, Dubai. The constructions took only 11 months and the assembly and outfitting 12 weeks. The North Deck was built on steel piles which reduce its environmental impact, for example, by creating an artificial reef providing shelter for marine life.

Etteplan was commisioned to deliver structural strength FE analyses for the North Deck.
