MARINA PLANNING & DESIGN unload or deal with any emerging problems. Trucks usually arrived at 4.30- 5.00am, the cranes start working at 6.00am and, just as work was ramping up, workers were often asked to leave the site they were working on to begin excavation on another building. Moods fluctuate throughout Ramadan. Workers work on empty stomachs until sunset; Muslim women cannot touch any men during the month; any exchange with a female banker, office worker or lawyer must be limited to a nod of the head and those of different cultures must fight the automatic urge to extend an arm for a handshake. At 9.00am every Tuesday there is a project meeting and all workers are reminded of the importance of reaching deadlines on time. This is followed by a rush out to the factory, to the site, to the administration offices, a re-arrangement of tasks and trimming of processes – actions that will only prove wise or otherwise a couple of weeks later. The hard work never ceases. The pontoon quality is inspected two or three times a week – top finishing, monolithic casing, manholes, rod ducts. As concrete cannot be cast or left to dry in the average 46°C (115°F) outside, units must be covered with rags and made permanently wet. The expanded polystyrene voids are reinforced and brought to the waiting empty moulds Integrating into the ‘cityscape’. while everyone hopes the truck delivering the concrete will arrive on time as concrete has to be poured from the truck within two hours of delivery. Launching and assembling marina sections is big news and attracts quite a crowd. When the first pontoon was launched, a high directive of Dubai Properties, press reporters and distinguished guests attended. The crowd watched as a crane swung a pontoon module and placed it delicately into the water. A set of five pontoons, including one with the palm tree in place, was towed towards the event area. The mirage turned into reality before everyone’s eyes. That night, workers celebrated at an Indian restaurant and, at 5.15am the next day, arrived back at the site to monitor the unloading and launching of the 14,000kg (14t) block anchors arriving from the Sharjah (desert) factory. The marina was completed with less than a month’s delay. - January/February 2018 29
