Project Objectives/ Outcomes:
Al Naseem is a mixed-use water front development within the master planned Diyar Al Muharraq community in Bahrain. This unique development is envisaged as a premier marine lifestyle development with villas and apartments overlooking outer and inner canals. Other components of the project include amenities like Retail, Promenade, Marina Yacht Club and a Boutique Hotel along with a seafront view.
ByrneLooby were tasked with providing technical inputs in the development of the masterplan, design of the internal canals, lock gate and water recirculation system. The canals were designed as a hybrid wall which included using precast concrete blocks placed on a rubble mound. The hybrid wall was proposed as a smart solution to optimise the plot size whilst ensuring safe navigation and adjacent berthing.
Infrastructure Consultants Stantec Khonji appointed ByrneLooby to develop the masterplan and provide marine services and MSCEB was assigned as Lead Architect. ByrneLooby provided the following marine services:
- Masterplan development
- Canal edge projection design
- Numerical modelling studies
- Concept marina and artificial beach design layouts
- Navigation and dredging assessments
- Lock gate and water recirculation system concept design
ByrneLooby has also been appointed to provide supervision for the construction of various marine and civil packages, including the inner canal, lock gates, pump stations, dredging and reclamation, and outer edge protection construction. ByrneLooby will also oversee the installation of the internal and external mooring structures.
