Emirates: Who is the winner of The Green Building of the Year award?

The Green Building Award of the Year has been awarded at the Emirates Green Building Awards 2015 to Cundall for the American University of Sharjah Campus Service Center.The award celebrates a finalized building in the MENA region where construction and completion has respected the highest sustainability standards and included innovation in design and process.

Cundall was employed in the capacity of lead consultant where we provided the full design, project management, cost consultancy and site supervision services for the campus service centre, youth centre and new service block projects. There were no sustainability regulations in force in Sharjah at the time of the design of this project but the university wanted to achieve a LEED silver level of sustainability.

The Campus Service Centre was designed, evaluated and constructed to LEED Silver/Gold standard, and was used as the catalyst for implementing sustainable initiatives within the other elements of the development, and indeed subsequent projects on the site.

Richard Stratton Managing Director for MENA comments “We were delighted that the American University of Sharjah was shortlisted and to have won the award is amazing and shows all of the teams hard work and dedication to making it a truly incredible project. The Campus Service Centre is an advocate for innovative sustainable design and we hope it leads the way to making other projects sustainable. The project is the product of a shared passion amongst the whole project team and is proof that fully integrated sustainable development is both affordable and practical. I am very proud of the contribution my team and Cundall made towards the success of this project”.
