AZIZI DEVELOPMENTS SPEEDS UP SUSTAINABILITY EFFORTS

 

Azizi Developments, a leading private developer in the UAE, in line with national sustainability efforts, has ramped up its efforts towards a greener and more sustainable future.  The developer earlier itself uses sustainable practices in its everyday operations, including power improvement capacitor bank panels — in line with DEWA requirements — and for the measurement of electricity, separate meters have been fixed in specific areas or individual items of equipment.

Azizi Developments only uses LED lighting fixtures and individual bulbs that are up to 80 per cent more efficient than traditional lighting which also last up to six times more than other types of lights and are eco-friendly with no toxic element dissemination associated to them.

“In line with the UAE Strategy 2050 that aims to increase the contribution of clean energy in the total energy mix to 50%, balance the supply and demand, and ensure a conducive economic environment for growth across sectors, we strive to create an exemplary, sustainable development model through our projects, from conception to construction. As one of the leading developers in the emirate, it is our duty and part of our yielding mission to ensure that our developments reflect the latest global sustainable trends and complement the nation’s effort.” said Mohamed Ragheb Hussein, Chief Development Officer at Azizi Developments.

Lighting control systems at Azizi Developments include motion sensors for all common areas, such as corridors and lobbies, where reduced lighting levels are set at no more than 25 per cent of the normal when unoccupied. Moreover, kitchen appliances across the projects are selected with higher energy-star ratings in compliance with requirements of sustainability. Additionally, the wiring accessories and other electrical components used by Azizi Developments are from leading market manufacturers, who are increasing the use of recycled materials in their products, with a low environmental impact, that uses natural building materials and products, and reusing non-toxic materials in their manufacturing, for example. 

Harvesting the condensate water from Air handling Units (AHU) and using it for irrigation purpose is another step taken by Azizi Developments towards the adoption of sustainable practices. Using efficient water fixtures, which reduces water consumption by 30 to 40 per cent, such as Dual flash WC, has proven to be a very effective way of water usage, along with using a metering system for public areas to measure and control water consumption.

This is a two way win project, as developing sustainably not only helps the developer and reduces costs on residents but also preserves the overall environment.
