Qasr Al Watan is situated on a 380,000 m2 site within the UAE’s Presidential Palace compound. The presidential palace was constructed between 2010 and 2017 with over one million square meters of intricate stonework and 22,000 cubic meters of Mughal-era-style decorative elements. It was used for official purposes only, mainly to host foreign dignitaries and leaders, as well as hosting meetings of the country's supreme council and the federal cabinet. 

Then, in 2019, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan and Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan decided to open the palace to the public to celebrate the heritage of the country. The palace became one of the world’s landmarks of art and culture. 

DG Jones and Partners seconded two (2) staff to Wilson Associates for the provision of Post-Contact Cost Control Services from July 2013 to June 2017. It consisted of interior fit-out works at the Vice President Wing and the Crown Prince Wing of the Presidential Palace Project located on the Ras Al Akhdar peninsula in Abu Dhabi.
