The design work includes master plan and study of the land use for the project’s surrounding area which will cover a total area of 2500,000 square meters. 


The Caption of the Picture


Jordan’s Red Sea coastline in Aqaba is 27 kilometers, a short stretch crowded with major developments, such as the Aqaba Port, hotels, and other facilities. To develop a large-scale tourism project, going a little inland, south of Aqaba city, is much more financially viable. When the Aqaba Development Corporation decided to build a resort town in 2016, it selected a mountainous area in the south overlooking the Aqaba Gulf.

The new development, Al Matal, budgeted at $1.5 billion occupies 700,000 m². It features a 100 Dunum artificial lake, a panoramic road and a cable car connecting the resort to the coastal area. The resort site is home to hotels, residences, parks, marina, recreational zone, water sports area, and shopping areas developed around a manmade lake. 

In 2016, Engicon was assigned the design of the masterplan for Al Matal, delivered the preparation of tender documents, and conducted the environmental and social impact assessment (ESIA). Engicon worked on planning, design, infrastructure utilities and geotechnical investigation.

The design works included stormwater system, road, wastewater, irrigation, and water networks, as well as all electromechanical systems. Engicon also carried out economic studies and management and operations plan.  

In 2019, Engicon was also assigned the supervision services for the execution of infrastructure works for the panoramic street, covering several aspects. The project involves constructing a 2.7 km panoramic road connecting to the coastal road, alongside flood protection and rainwater drainage systems. The project also involves setting up water, sewage, irrigation, electrical, fire alarm, and network communication systems, as well as a guard tower building. Additionally, the project includes afforestation and site coordination measures.
