Design and execution of piling works for a shopping mall, two hotels and five residential towers, in Diayar Al Muharraq.

design and install bored piles for mixed-use development

The project

Marassi Al Bahrain covers 124 915m² of reclaimed land. It is a unique mixed-use urban development focused on tourism, recreation, and housing in a context of quality amenities, open spaces and public beaches for both foreign visitors and residents.  

The challenge

Amidst tough competition, Keller won this project on an alternative design as the Client was seeking a solution to fit its budget limits without compromising on time and quality. 

Keller’s alternative design resulted in savings of up to 40% for the Client.

The solution

A number of 5 510 piles of varying diameters of 600mm, 750mm and 800mm were designed to an average depth of 21m and max 25m.

Besides preliminary test piles that were executed to confirm the design, production piles were load tested simultaneously and the buildings were handed over ahead of the agreed milestone dates.
