CLIMATE & SUSTAINABILITY
- Sustainability Strategy & Planning (Estidama PRRS status)
The design process prioritized sustainability, resulting in the project receiving the esteemed Estidama PRRS status, a notable accomplishment as the first in the UAE. Sustainable features include Rain Towers for water collection, solar panels integrated into shade structures for energy generation, and living walls that enhance the microclimate in shaded gathering areas.
ICON’s scope of work involved developing a comprehensive landscape design package, producing detailed drawings and reports for obtaining necessary approvals, and finalizing the IFC (Issued for Construction) drawings once the detailed design was approved, contributing to the realization of Masdar’s commitment to creating a vibrant, environmentally responsible, and culturally contextual public space.
