Abu Dhabi Education Council, Offices

Provided sustainability input into a competition winning design for the Abu Dhabi Education Council’s new headquarters office in Abu Dhabi, which aimed to achieve a 5 Pearl rating, under Abu Dhabi’s Estidama scheme (equivalent to a BREEAM Outstanding Rating).


The design included the following passive measures:


> An over-sailing canopy providing shade to both buildings & amenity spaces

> Exposed thermal mass and passive adiabatic cooling from amenity water and earth coupled pre-cooled air supply.


In addition energy efficient measures included in the design proposals were:

> Areas of photovoltaic cells were proposed on the canopy to make the design a positive supplier of electricity.

> Low water use fittings in conjunction with water recycling, condensate and dew collection systems were proposed to achieve positive water generation from the scheme.
