Fisherman's Wharf, The Entrance

Izzat was engaged to provide design and detailing services under a Design & Construct arrangement for the Fisherman's Wharf development at The Entrance.

The project architect had developed an artistic scheme of the form of the fabric shade structure, however it required an engineered solution to fit to the constraints of the project. Construction of the building was well developed at the time of our commission, and a challenging design solution was presented due to the physical constraints of the built structure.

Izzat provided services to resolve the final fabric design including 3D modelling, design of structural steel support, and construction detailing for steelwork, fabric and hardware components. Despite a number of design challenges and time constrains, the project was satisfactorily completed within the required period.
