Al Raha Beach


Al Raha Beach is a mixed-use development situated in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. The self-contained city is close to Abu Dhabi airport and also lies on the highway to Dubai, making it one of the most popular areas in Abu Dhabi among both tenants and property investors.

Al Naboodah Laing O'Rourke began construction work on this development in 2006. Asite was contracted to provide project collaboration services for two years of pre-construction and provide comprehensive training for the entire project development team.

The development comprises of eight kilometers of waterfront residential housing and is spread over seven hectares. The new self-contained city consists of mixed residential, retail, and recreational properties. Inspired by Abu Dhabi’s sea-faring culture, it also includes marinas and canals.

Lifestyle and leisure activities are plentiful in the Al Raha Beach development, including watersport activities like waterskiing, wakeboarding, and fishing. Some districts were also built with private beaches for residents.

Commercial buildings were also constructed within the development, ensuring the city is wholly self-contained and designed for full community use. Food and shopping destinations include fashion outlets and waterfront restaurants and cafes.

As part of their work on the project, Asite provided Al Naboodah Laing O'Rourke with a project management tool to ensure collaboration and project security. Asite also provided over 7,000 hours of training on the technology to approximately 1,700 users. This training was achieved through 162 sessions in both face-to-face and through remote web-based training.

The waterfront city is still undergoing development and, upon completion, the 5.2 million sqm development will have the capacity for 120,000 residents in over 3,000 properties.
