Habtoor Leighton Group was responsible for the construction of the main club building, the technical building, two hotels, the approach road, the boundary wall and a guard’s room.

The project required 55 kilometres of pilings, 11,000 tonnes of scaffolding, 28,000 tonnes of structural steel and 200,000 cubic metres of concrete to build the main club building.

A unique feature of the structure was its 24,000 square metre shell roof, which comprised of three single 25,000 square metre shells – weighing 9,000 tonnes each and covering a combined total of 120,000 square metres of floor space.

The complex covers an area of 15 hectares and is set in 75 hectares of landscaped gardens.
