Dubai Municipality educates on new green building legislation at The Big 5

 The Dubai Municipality will be presenting the latest Dubai Green Building Code at The Big 5, offering attendees the opportunity to understand more about the regulations and their impact on the industry for the future before they go-live in early 2014.

There will be a full outline the requirements for assessment and certification of green buildings together with a follow-up workshop that will provide more in-depth information on assessment procedures. The seminars will include a comprehensive overview of the testing procedures of products within the new regulations and the certification process.

“We are ready, our testing and certification centres are ready; we want to ensure that the industry is also ready and has access to the relevant training and information they require in advance of the launch. The Big 5 provides an excellent platform for us to engage with a wide range of stakeholders and communicate this key information.”

These free-to-attend seminars will also provide key insight into the progress of Dubai’s construction market, and the key successes and challenges, including that of meeting the increased demand for power and water that comes with the on-going growth and development.
