Grand Hyatt Arkiteknik International, the project architects, designed the hotel based on a remit that combined contemporary design with traditional Arab culture. The architects have created a world-class hotel combining luxury facilities with innovative design and architecture. Towering majestically by the edge of Dubai's historic creek, the hotel boasts 674 rooms, 14 restaurants and bars, a spa and fitness centre, tennis court and a leisure garden. Built on a 37 acre site, almost 18,000m³ of concrete and 20,000m² of glazing was used in the construction of one of the largest conference and convention centres in the Middle East. The construction incorporates the Parallel system for opening the vents, providing the building with the option of using natural ventilation during the cooler months. As with the other commercial hinges developed by Securistyle, the Parallel Plus is manufactured from high grade 304 austenitic stainless steel. This high-grade material is selected to provide increased strength and guaranteed long-term resistance to corrosion, all fully supported by a 12 year guarantee.
