Dubai to play home to Emirates’ first sustainable building
Dubai will soon play home to 340,000 square feet worth of pure green architecture, the first sustainable building to show up in the Emirates. Commissioned to be used by the water and civil division of the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority, this sustainable piece of modern architecture will generate nearly 600kW of solar energy on-site, which will be used by the building to reduce its complete reliance on grid power. To be completed over the next few months, the building is located at Shaikh Zayed Road in Al Quoz and will make use of high efficiency insulation and smart building systems. Apart from this, the building will also make use of LED lighting technology and is termed as one of the greenest buildings in the Emirates!
