dubai-airportsDubai Airports has won Gold standard Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification for the operation and maintenance of existing buildings of the air traffic control facility at Dubai World Central (DWC).

The facility is spread across 19,880 sq m at Dubai’s second airport, and consists of the control tower, technical block and surrounding grounds. It achieved a LEED score of 68, placing it solidly in the Gold category. The Gold certification was recently awarded by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC).

The facility was evaluated on the basis of its performance in five categories including sustainability, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources, indoor environmental quality and innovation in operations and regional priority.

Omar Binadai, Vice President, Engineering Services at Dubai Airports said, “Due to the unique challenges presented by the functionality of an ATC tower, particularly the requirement for large reflective glass surfaces, very few globally have achieved the gold standard. We are pleased to have achieved this rating and thankful for the close cooperation of Dubai Air Navigation Services (DANS) and Dubai Aviation Engineering Projects (DAEP). Managing efficient and environmental-friendly buildings is in line with Dubai Airports’ commitment to grow and manage our business in a sustainable manner and to limit our carbon footprint.”

LEED is the internationally accepted certification for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings.
