This project involved the design and construction of an educational facility on a green-field site in Abu Dhabi.

Covering more than 93,000 square metres, the project was completed in two distinct phases.

The academic buildings consist of a central circular plaza with a 25-metre tall domed cupola, complementing the original Paris-Sorbonne University tower. It features two lecture wings, a library, an auditorium, an administrative building and a dining hall radiating out from the central plaza area.

The student residence, sports hall and car park structures are constructed on the western side of the plot.

They provide three levels of parking with landscaped terraces, sports and recreational facilities including changing rooms, and separate five-storey male/female accommodation blocks.

The project was constructed through a joint venture with Murray & Roberts.
