Pearl Jumeirah Island

Meeras’ first reclamation project is located in the Arabian Gul, adjacent to the southern breakwater of Mina Rashid. The size of the artificial island was approximate 75 hectare.
The Pearl Jumeira would be constructed from Dubai sourced reclaimed sand and locally sourced rockworks. Reclaimed sand was dredged from known borrow pits in Dubai waters, transported to site and deposited on the seabed to form the development. The sand was retained along the perimeter of the development with rockwork slopes and man-made beaches. The edge structures were designed to provide shoreline stability and protection against coastal flooding. The reclaimed material was improved via vibro-compaction to provide a suitable platform for the subsequent development.

Scope of work:
• Hydrodynamic modelling,
• Concept design and detailed design of all coastal and marine structures: revetments, seawalls, reclamation platform and a beach.
• Construction supervision of marine works.
