Atlantis the Palm, Jumeirah, Dubai
Client: Kerzner Istithmar Limited
Value: £80 million
Main Contractor: Al Naboodah & Laing O’Rourke

Together with joint venture partners, BK Gulf, Rotary Building Services carried out the full mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineering services work for the world renowned - Atlantis the Palm.


Royal Tower Hotel: A highly themed hotel with 1,215 rooms and a spectacular Bridge Suite. This hotel includes public areas including three restaurants and a spa.

Coral Tower Hotel: A smaller themed hotel with 799 rooms is located west of the Royal. This hotel includes a buffet restaurant located on grade and a speciality restaurant located on the upper level. A major public promenade links to the Royal Tower. The main lobby and vehicle entry court are on the upper level with most of the service areas for both hotels located on the tower level. This themed hotel was designed in a subdued manner so that it does not compete with the Royal Tower for attention. However, the materials used in this building were also comparable to the Royal Tower for their durability.

Conference Centre: A conference centre incorporated as a link between the hotels, consisting of a formal ballroom, multiple meeting rooms and their associated support functions.

Together with our joint venture partners, BK Gulf, we carried out the full mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineering services work for the following areas: The Royal Hotel (26 storeys 1,539 rooms), the retail park, the conference centres, the water park including, the dolphin experience, the shark tank, all swimming pools and water rides and slides park.

Beetham Hilton Tower, Manchester
Client: The Beetham Organisation
Value: £11 million
Client: Carillion

Standing 171 metres high, the Beetham Tower in Manchester is one of Europe’s tallest residential buildings and the UK’s tallest building outside London. This iconic building houses the Hilton Hotel, 219 luxury apartments and 16 penthouses. Rotary Building Services has a strong track record of delivering complex residential and mixed use developments.

The logistical constraints of storage, in-situ building and the testing schedule meant pre-fabrication was essential for this project. A large proportion of the services installed by Rotary lent themselves to the pre-fabrication concept. These included the mechanical installations providing hot and cold water; chilled water; heating water services and drainage.

Beetham Tower Holloway Circus, Birmingham
Client: The Beetham Organisation
Value: £8 million
Main Contractor: Laing O’Rourke

Following on from the successful completion of the Radisson Hotel at the Light Project in Leeds, Rotary Building Services were awarded this prestigious city centre development.

This 43-storey building is one of the tallest in Birmingham and the specialist design required to construct such a building in the centre of Britain’s second largest city, is truly ground breaking. The final development includes a four-star Radisson hotel together with 140 residential apartments, six duplex apartments and two luxury penthouses. The logistic constraints of storage, in situ building, the testing schedule and the associated constraints of working within a busy city centre, identified this project as needing close teamwork and co-operation from all.

Work included: Low voltage electrics, fife support systems, public address, data, air conditioning, WR2 installation, ductwork systems, packaged plant, plumbing, heating, above ground drainage, combined heat and power (CHP) and rainwater systems.

Stratford Eye, Newham, London
Client: London & Quadrant Group
Value: £4 million
Client: Wates

The Stratford Eye development comprises a 19-storey tower development of private sale flats with a mix of low rise flats for rental and shared ownership and a 6-storey air-conditioned office block.

The basement energy centre for the complex incorporates the central plant for all of the services to the office and accommodation areas which includes a combined heat and power system, enabling the management company to provide base level electricity for resale purposes whist providing heating and cooling to the buildings, supplemented by a smaller than normal boiler system and reduced size cooling plant.

The energy centre also handles all of the incoming raw water to the complex which is treated before being metered and boosted to all outlets in the complex.

The entire mechanical plant to the complex, including the office air condition system utilising ceiling mounted fan coil units, is controlled and monitored by a Trend Building Management system networked to a central ‘supervisor’ in the control room.

To add to the ‘green’ credentials of this urban development the rainwater is collected and stored in an underground reservoir for use in irrigating the landscaped gardens.

Rotary Building Services provided a full range of mechanical and electrical services for this shell and core fit out.
