Olive takes on Nakheel tower

Olive Group will undertake security risk work at the Tall Tower, Dubai Waterfront.

Olive Group has been appointed to work on Nakheel's Tall Tower project on Dubai Waterfront as security risk and system design consultants.

The Tall Tower - which has also been referred to as Al Burj - will be the focal part of the 140 million m2 development, and has been billed as being the tallest tower in the world.

"It's a privilege for Olive Group to be involved in a landmark project that supports the strategic vision of Dubai," said Chris St George, managing director, Olive Group.

"Our role demonstrates our capability to deliver technology-led security solutions and is illustrative of our growing portfolio of major projects across the region."

In March, Australia's Van Der Meer Consulting (VDM) won a US $2.8 million (AED10.3 million) subcontract to provide structural engineering consultancy services on the tower.

WSP is the main consultant, while US-based LERA is the subconsultant.
