DUBAI, UAE, 7 November 2019: Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation (Empower) has begun constructing its new headquarters in Al Jaddaf, Dubai, at a cost of AED 280 million, the District Cooling utility said, adding that the facility is expected to be inaugurated in Q1 of 2021.

The new headquarters will include two buildings: an office building and a residential building, both of which will feature a three-storey underground parking as well as shops, the company said through a Press release. Each building, the company said, will consist of 10 floors. The office building will include staff offices and shops, while the residential building will consist of social amenities, restaurants and green areas for residents and employees, the company added.

Empower highlighted through the release that the total built-up area of the new headquarters will be  730,000 square feet, of which 555,000 square feet will be for the office building, and 175,000 square feet will be for the residential building, containing facilities, services and shops.

The headquarters will be built according to LEED Gold certification requirements from the US Green Building Council, which is internationally recognised to assess the design, construction, and operation of environmentally friendly and high-performance buildings, the company said.

The new headquarters will be easily accessible from Al Khail Road and Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road, and can accommodate a large number of customers and employees, the company said. It will also include parking spaces and other services to ensure the safety and satisfaction of customers, the company added.

“Empower’s new headquarters that is currently under construction, will be completed in Q1 of 2021,” Ahmad Bin Shafar, CEO, Empower, said. “Through this new project, we are promoting our investments and offering customers innovative solutions to provide them with a seamless experience.

“Design, construction, and operation of environmentally friendly and high-performance buildings have been taken into consideration in the designing of both the buildings, to support the preservation of the environment, combat climate change and support national and global sustainability standards. The new headquarters is a new chapter in our journey towards expansion, and supports our continuous growth strategy.”
