Atkins is part of a seven-partner consortium who are developing a digital platform that is setting out to improve the rail travel experience for disabled passengers in the UK.
Atkins has been appointed to prepare a concept design to completely transform Coral Reef. The project includes the demolition and complete removal of the existing timber glulam beam roof over the main pool hall and replacement with a new steel truss roof which will be split into two sections with a centrally located roof light running its length.
Five new flumes will also be built and supplemented with audio visual special effects systems. Having welcomed more than 10 million visitors since its opening in the new iconic fume rides will ensure the longevity and continued success of Coral Reef Waterworld for many years to come.
Low water fittings and appliances, as well as rainwater collection for irrigation and flushing of WCs, help to minimise water use. Each home and apartment has individual facilities for recycling. As a result of the integrated design approach, the properties are inexpensive to run whilst minimising the impact on the environment.
We provided multidiscipline services for the development, including architecture, structural, mechanical and electrical engineering, landscaping, masterplanning, project management and code for sustainable homes assessment. Approximately 20 million vacationing passengers travel through the channel to vacation destinations such as, Bahamas, Caribbean, and Mexico.
Because of the high visibility of the pier, it was important to honor local aesthetics. Durable concrete benches and two canopy structures were installed. Protecting the local sea life was also a priority.
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission FWC -approved, turtle friendly lighting was used throughout the pier to minimize impacts on hatching sea turtles. To protect corals and water quality, Atkins prepared an Avoidance and Minimization Plan AMPwhich served as a guide for the construction contractor to address construction impacts.
Corals were relocated to an artificial reef recipient site west of the pier. Potential water quality impacts were addressed in a turbidity monitoring plan.
Complex environmental conditions required permitting approvals from multiple agencies. Land and water rights, held by the City, state, and federal government, had to be updated prior to construction. Atkins used its longstanding relationships and experience with regulatory agencies to ensure all requirements were met.
In August ofthe City of Miami Beach officially reopened the pier to the public and it was commemorated with a series of free events that included art displays, giveaways, and refreshments.
Today, the Pier remains a vibrant attraction for artists, joggers, and fishing enthusiasts.

Carnival Corporation estimates eight of its brands will make calls on the port, with 23 ships throughout its first year of operation. Echoing the culture and existing architecture in the area, we incorporated modern interpretations of historical periods of significance for the Puerto Plata province.Journal of International Management Studies.
