ECG was appointed as OQYANA - World First's Architect of Record covering all phases of work from conceptual design till tender documents and tender action. OQYANA - World First is an archipelago of manmade islands modeling the countries of Australasia on THE WORLD Project.

OQYANA, THE WORLD's first fully master planned island retreat extends over a total area of 2 million m2 of seawater comprising 20 reclaimed islands with an upland area of 420,000 m2. OQYANA is destined to be a fully harmonized mixed-use lifestyle through a mixture of seaview luxury units with a total built-up area of 771,000 m2 including ocean beach villas, coastal beach villas, canal homes, coral water homes, marina apartments, reef seaside apartments, penthouse apartments and serviced apartments, complimented with commercial and cultural activities, yacht club, community services, aquarium, five hotels, state-of-the-art spa in addition to ferry terminals and marinas.

OQYANA - World First, Dubai, is accessible only by sea and air. The land mass was selected because of its proximity to the mainland, four kilometers of the Jumeirah Beach coast, thus giving its residents a panoramic view of Dubai.

The entire destination can be isolated as it has no extensive public water corridors running through it, providing the highest privacy levels for residents. OQYANA - World First provides homes of distinction for the world's discerning.

ECG's scope includes the preparation of building permit documents, detailed design, working drawings, and technical specifications for all trades comprising architectural, landscape, interior design, structural, electrical, light current, HVAC, and mechanical/conveying systems.
