Reem Mall recognised by Abu Dhabi UPC for sustainable efforts

Reem Mall recognised by Abu Dhabi UPC for sustainable efforts

June 2016

Reem Mall, Abu Dhabi’s major new up and coming retail, leisure, dining and entertainment destination, has been awarded the Estidama 2 Pearl Design Rating by the Abu Dhabi Urban Planning Council (UPC).

Estidama is an initiative developed and promoted by the UPC for large-scale sustainable urban developments.

From the outset, Reem Mall has been designed as a highly efficient building that will minimise overall energy use. The walls, roof and glazing have been carefully studied and designed with high-efficient insulation and high performance materials, coupled with high efficiency air conditioning and lighting systems.

Water consumption has been another key consideration. To reduce the consumption of potable water in the building, efficient water irrigation systems and appliances have been incorporated into the design.

A minimum of 70% of the waste generated on site will be recycled, and 20 of materials will be procured from sources within 500 km of the site, reducing the travelling distance and related air pollution.

Located on Al Reem Island, the new mall development will open in 2018.
