AK Design have being appointed as the Lead Design Consultant and the Architect Of Record by the Engineering Office acting on behalf of the Jumeirah Group for major upgrade works to the Talise Health Club. This lifestyle facility is located within the recently renovated Jumeirah Beach Hotel where AK Design also acted as the Lead Design Consultant and the Architect Of Record for this significant resort assignment. The health club is to occupy three levels within the hotel. The existing standalone club structure requires demolition as it occupies a pivotal position between the Jumeirah Beach Hotel and access to the new Marsa Al Arab where land works have started.
The Talise Health Club project also includes external fitness and leisure activities such as an outdoor gymnasium, new squash courts building, new lap pool and six elevated tennis courts linked by a pedestrian bridge. AK Design needed to adhere to regulatory international standards for all key sporting facilities provided for club members and hotel guests alike. The works include installing a large structural steel framework as the base platforms for the tennis courts with minimum impact on car parking spaces directly below. All external works are to be appropriately landscaped in keeping with the resort gardens so that the finished project has a greenery and lush appearance.
