3rd Island & Marine Development Middle East

10/21/2019–10/22/2019 Dubai, United Arab Emirates


Aligned with its tourism and real estate vision plans to diversify the economy and capture lucrative tourism, leisure and entertainment segments, the Middle East is investing multi-billion dollars in its island and waterfront developments.

Besides tourism, land reclamation is also happening for expansion, maritime ports and oil and gas. The creation of Island development is not without its challenges. From construction to commercialism there are a number of factors to consider making sure your development stands out from the crowd.

Keller presentation:

Title: Sustainable ground improvement solutions for islands and land reclamation with low carbon footprint.

Which solutions are available to support sustainable ground improvement ?

As more land reclamation projects are being planned it also creates the demand to co-create value for ‘’greener’’ geotechnical solutions with a lower carbon footprint. Simultaneously, the cost-efficiency, design optimization and time are still at the core of executing these solutions effectively.  

In this session, we will highlight:

  • Ground improvement solutions for deep treatment and shallow treatment
  • Comparative analysis of carbon footprint of various ground improvement solutions and piling
  • Recommendations for assessment of liquefaction potential of improved ground
