Jewel defines a new standard for luxury with its spectacular crystal inspired geometric design.

A stunning addition to the Gold Coast skyline, the Jewel development includes three faceted towers featuring high-end retail, fine-dining restaurants and residential facilities.

The Arcadis team provided civil, structural and façade engineering services for the $A970 million project.  During inception, the Arcadis Team worked with our client Wanda, and Architect DBI Design to develop an innovative solution of incorporating basements with the requirements for the Ocean-front Seawall.  This allowed for improved efficiencies in carparking layouts and resulted in the removal of a full basement, saving an estimated $A10M in excavation, and construction.

Through close collaboration with the Geotechnical Engineer and Wanda’s Construction Management Team, Arcadis have been able to develop a partially piled raft foundation system which improved construction time and was significantly more cost effective when compared to traditional foundation options.

Arcadis is delivering innovative solutions for the design of a hydrostatic basement in the water-charged sands of the Surfers Paradise Beach, design of a large resort style podium with multiple dining experiences, conference centre and resort pool.

As one of the largest mixed-use developments in Australia, Jewel will create 2,700 jobs during construction and is estimated to be completed in time for the Commonwealth Games in 2018 to be held on the Gold Coast.
