One of the tallest buildings in the Dubai Marina area offering over 90 floors of residential accommodation and services.

To meet the acoustic requirements, a double boarded solution was required (to both sides), however we were able to engineer a single boarded solution using the Gyproc DuraLine board with insulation in the cavity, providing the customer with a cost effective system solution.


In a bid to save weight and reduce load, we were able to offer a lightweight solution that would:

  • Speed up installation.
  • Improve site cleanliness and material storage.
  • Facilitate and improve installation of mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP).
  • Ultimately give a better overall finish.


By working closely with both KEO Consultants and Dubai Civil Engineering, our team of Gyproc Technical Consultants were able to re-design the partitions giving a finished weight of only 24kg/m2 that also provided a highly impact resistant finish, meeting both the fire and acoustic requirements for the project.
