The Deira Watefront Development - a masterplanned mixed-use multiple-district development project assigns Hyder as the Architect of Record. The Concept Design of both the community and the iconic Deira Fish Market was done by Cadiz International, and are the Design Architects of the development. Original article follows:


The Deira Waterfront Development, Dubai, has appointed Hyder Consulting to carry out full design services of the Deira Fish Market project. 

The commission includes: architecture, MEP, structures, infrastructure, traffic engineering, geotechnical, environment, waste management, landscape and LEED certification services as well as marine engineering and fire and life safety. The concept design will be developed by CADIZ Design - adopted by Hyder's architecture team and developed through to construction documentation. A further opportunity for supervision services exists beyond this design appointment.

The project will replace the existing open air fish market in Deira - with a purpose built facility on Dubai Creek. Features of the new facility includes: a working marina to receive fishing boats; a souq area and various restaurants including two floating restaurants; two mosques including supporting offices and administration facilities. A leisure marina will also be incorporated in to the development.  

“This project win is the result of a sustained engagement with the client over a long period of time. Our continuous commitment to a prospective client helped us understand their needs and in turn allowed us to tailor an offering and fee that resulted in Hyder winning the project”. Greg Kane, Hyder’s Business Unit Director.
