Spanning 1.3 million sqft, City Centre Almaza was built by a joint venture between Consolidated Contractors Company (CCC) and the Egyptian company Hassan Allam Construction. According to CCC, the energy-efficient systems implemented at the shopping mall save 14.6% of electricity. The development also used recycled and locally sourced materials throughout the design and construction processes.
This sustainability-first approach comes as countries in the region have embedded sustainability goals into their policy planning, and put in place the necessary building blocks that address sustainability challenges effectively.
