One Za’abeel receives LEED Gold rating

A modern mixed-use development One Za’abeel, wholly owned by the Investment Corporation of Dubai, has achieved the prestigious LEED Gold rating from the US Green Building Council. This achievement recognises the comprehensive effort One Za’abeel and its collaborators have exerted to ensure the highest sustainable standards were implemented throughout the project’s design, construction, development and ongoing operations.

One Za’abeel combines residential, hospitality, business and retail into one central location in the heart of Dubai. The interconnectedness of its uses extends to the interconnectedness of its many sustainability measures, as LEED Gold certification requirements ensured the conservation of energy and water, use of green materials and waste reduction, as well as prioritising user health and wellbeing.

Measures taken to meet requirements include the selection of a distinct facade that shrouds the two towers and The Link, selected for its heat reduction engineering which minimises the demand for cooling, while still providing excellent daylight for promoted health and wellbeing. Other measures taken to reduce carbon footprint include energy-efficient HVAC systems, LED lighting and automated electrical and lighting systems to reduce waste as well as lower operating costs. These considerations lower the cost of living within One Za’abeel while maintaining utmost quality. Monitoring systems ensure that consumption is tracked as One Za’abeel continues to prioritise accountability and a maintenance of standards throughout its lifetime.

“This achievement strongly showcases One Za’abeel’s commitment to sustainability for the benefit of its users, its tenants and the residents of Dubai at large. We collaborated closely with WSP Middle East to ensure that green considerations were meticulously incorporated at every step. The iconic landmark symbolises Dubai’s innovative spirit, aligned closely with the UAE’s Net Zero 2050 initiative, we set the LEED Gold standard requirements as a benchmark for this commitment. This accomplishment is a great honour and represents our dedication to serve all stakeholders at the modern standards we value dearly,” said Issam Galadari, Director of One Za’abeel.
