what do people say about us?

“Landscape architects bring spaces to life for society as well as shape human interaction. Championing projects such as JBR The Walk in Dubai, Cracknell demonstrates with such clarity how it is not about the buildings themselves but about the spaces between the buildings that provide the context for creating a vibrant urban lifestyle.”

Professor Shams Naga, Founder and Principal of NAGA Architects, Designers and Planners

what do people say about us?

"Meraas has appointed Cracknell on a range of developments across the commercial and hotel sectors and throughout our association they have focused on developing a strong working relationship with us. It’s this spirit of partnership that has enabled them to consistently gain an in-depth understanding of each brief and realise our vision for the particular  project.

Their designs have a true international flavour reflective of global trends, and are indeed innovative. Of particular interest, is how the social and economic context of Cracknell’s designs complement so well the urban focus of our developments.

We have been delighted with the collaborative approach that underpin Cracknell’s services and look forward to further building on this very solid working relationship."

Uros Markovic, Head - Architecture, Meraas Holding

what do people say about us?

"Well done to the Cracknell team for your hard work and dedication over the past months on the Za'abeel Palace project. From the concept design through to on-site completion, the team has done an outstanding job and we could not have met the project milestones without your collaborative efforts.   

We have worked with Cracknell many times before and there is always a true sense of ‘partnership’ with every project. In addition to consistently delivering innovative design solutions, the teamwork spirit, genuine concern for delivering within agreed milestone dates as well as an appreciation of budgetary constraints, makes it a real pleasure to deal with Cracknell”
