UAE completes $14m Fujairah cultural centre project

DUBAI, June 8, 2017

The UAE government has completed a major cultural centre in the northern emirate of Fujairah using  sustainable materials, in line with its GCC green building regulations, at a total cost of Dh51 million ($14 million).

The UAE Ministry of Infrastructure Development will be handing over the facility next week, reported state news agency Wam, citing a senior official.

"The projects being implemented by the ministry, including the cultural centre project, are characterised by modern architecture while considering sustainability standards and reducing energy consumption," remarked Mariam Abdul Kareem, the head of the implementation department at the Ministry of Infrastructure Development.

She pointed out that the construction and maintenance of all government establishments are being done on par with international standards, green building regulations and sustainability requirements, to reduce their environmental impact.

This comes in line with the government’s vision to make the UAE among the world’s best countries by 2021, by providing high-quality services, stated Kareem.
