New headquarters of Dubai's Bee'ah to be designed by Zaha Hadid Architects
Posted on 19th December 2014
AE's integrated environmental and waste management company Bee’ah has commissioned Zaha Hadid Architects to build its new headquarter building in Sharjah, UAE, following the 2013 international competition.
The 7,000 square meter headquarters is considered as part of Bee’ah’s ongoing investment to provide the community with the infrastructure, tools and support to achieve their environmental goals. It will be used as a learning resource to demonstrate practical environmental awareness to the wider community.
To be built on 90,000 square meter desert site, Zaha Hadid’s design for the building envisions a fleet of sweeping sand dunes orientated to optimize the prevailing Shamal winds and limit the quantity of glazing exposed to the harsh sun.
The building is designed to secure LEED Platinum Certification. The acclaimed architect worked with UK-based environmental design consultants Atelier Ten to develop the building systems that will reduce its energy consumption by 30 percent and has developed the building’s structure in conjunction with engineers Buro Happold to minimize material consumption. The project is expected to be completed by 2018.Back to all Construction News
