Who hasn’t heard about the Louvre Abu Dhabi that is scheduled to open at the end of 2016? Designed by 2008 Pritzker Architecture Prize winner Jean Nouvel, the Louvre Abu Dhabi will be one of the premier cultural and community destinations of the region, located in the heart of Saadiyat Cultural District. Besides Louvre Abu Dhabi, the Cultural District will include three other museums: Guggenheim, Zayed National Museum and Maritime Museum.

Ecocoast was contracted to install 6 tubular piles for VIP pontoons (i.e. the VIP entrance to the museum) right beneath the roof structure of the Louvre Abu Dhabi.
