Yas Island Hotel

Covered by its stunning grid shell façade and constructed over the grand prix race track, the 5-star hotel is made up of two towers comprising of 499 guestrooms including a number of Presidential Suites; Michelin starred restaurants; and a link bridge that boasts of executive lounge facilities with a view of the race track.

Faithful+Gould was appointed as project manager to deliver this iconic structure within a challenging 8-month schedule from design to construction. To ensure the project stays on track, the team developed, implemented and managed a stringent fast track procurement and construction strategy from concept design through to operational hand over.

The project was concluded successfully with the hotel opening its doors to the public in late September 2009 for Abu Dhabi's inaugural Grand Prix race.
