Burj Al Arab Helipad Putting Green

One of our more unique projects, in 2011 Hennessey installed a putting green on the helipad of the Burj Al Arab for an advertisement for Jumeirah Group. As well as laying the putting green, Hennessey also installed a sand bunker, this was so that Rory McIlroy could take a bunker shot and get a hole in one as part of the advertisement.

One of the logistical challenges of this project, there was only 1 lift with access to the helipad, therefore the use of the lift by Hennessey personnel when bring material up to the helipad had to be coordinated with hotel staff. This was in order to ensure there was no disruption to the hotel’s regular operation. This is just one example of Hennessey’s expertise and experience of working within busy ‘live’ environments, and our understanding of how to coordinate with staff so that normal business operations are not interrupted during any project.

Projects such as this also have to be managed to the highest level of efficiency and not suffer any delay or error. This is so that everything that is planned following Hennessey’s work (in this case the arrival of Rory McIlroy, the film crew, the helicopter that filmed the event) all can go ahead without disruption.
