Favourite Design

Nick’s feels the most impressive technical projects undertaken in recent years are both mass land reclamation and redevelopment projects, that began with a seemingly impossible objective and delivered and exceeded expectations. This includes the Singapore Waterfront Redevelopment schemes, comprising The Gardens by The Bay, The Flower Domes, The Supertree Groves and the completely wild Marina Bay Sands Hotel. The land reclamation and waterfront projects that have redefined and reinvented the city of Dubai to create the world’s most fantastic playgrounds, including the New World Islands development, The Palm and of course the magnificent Burj Al Arab and Burj Khalifa, show the rest of the world how it is possible to solve any technical problem we might encounter. These key landscaping and design projects are often undertaken by British Architects and Engineers.
