Viewing Point at the Dubai Creek Harbour Marina Boardwalk

The Marina Terminus CFRP Walkway stands as a testament to PCT's commitment to innovation, excellence, and pushing the boundaries of engineering possibility. We're immensely proud to have partnered with Emaar and Architects SWA on this transformative project, contributing to the development of Dubai Creek Harbour Marina Boardwalk as a premier destination for residents and visitors alike.


The project involved the engineering, construction, and installation of a state-of-the-art carbon fibre composite walkway, supported by a series of steel pillars strategically positioned at the end of a marina breakwater. Spanning an impressive surface area of 324m², the walkway comprises a series of interconnected 3-dimensional rings, forming three distinct ramps facilitating access to the slim superstructure.


The walkway has been built in separate parts, thirty-seven (37) individual CFRP (carbon fibre reinforced polymer) panels, making use of the repetitive radial geometry to minimize the amount of tooling. Some of these parts have been joined together at the factory using laminated joints to make larger parts and minimize visible joints. The remaining joints are based around splitting the components into large scale pieces for shipping and assembly. These parts have been joined on site using bolted micro-seam joints.


Each CFRP panel is produced in two parts, a main hull with internal structural bulkheads and a deck. Both parts are bonded together at the factory to form a single finished panel.

Panels are built out of carbon fibre impregnated with epoxy resin. A carbon sandwich construction using structural core is chosen in the main panel areas, while flanges are monolithic.


Panels are connected to the steel columns via steel bracket/bolted connection covered by FRP cladding panels.
