La Mer is a world-class beachfront in the prestigious Jumeira 1 neighbourhood that incorporates a minimalist and contemporary design with shops, restaurants and cafés, leisure and entertainment along 2.5 kilometres of relaxing white sand. 

La Mer will include fully integrated residential neighbourhoods that comprise a total of 688 apartments and villas as well as a 160-key hotel to meet the expected influx of tourists. The project will also launch a range of retail and F&B concepts, some of which will mark their foray into Dubai.

Centrally located, the core value of the project is its leisure and entertainment hub that adds a whole new dimension through its offerings that focus on water play, beach sports in addition to skate boarding, outside gymnasia and youth activities. As part of its leisure and entertainment component, the project will additionally include two marinas for yachts, and a park.

SESC were engaged on the project as a commissioning consultant to assess the condition of all MEP assets and subsequently witness/sign off the equipment. The challenge on this project was the co-ordination of all the parties involved to traverse the 2.5km property in a timely and effective manner. This was achieved by strict adherence to the project programme and effective co-ordination of all parties through commissioning data and management practices.
