Innovative technologies to promote construction growth

The_Big_5_1The Ventures report, commissioned by The Big 5, provides new information on sustainable and innovative products available in the GCC market, as well as case studies to provide real life examples of successful applications.

The report ‘New technologies to help promote sustainability and efficiency in construction' reveals that despite an international economic downturn, the GCC construction industry remains a significant area of growth, with the UAE and Saudi Arabia leading the way with construction spend in the upcoming year. The report also highlights the development of new technologies in the region and the impact these will have on the industry.

Vision 2030

New technology will help drive the healthiest areas of UAE construction in the upcoming years, with spend in building construction alone projected at US$184 billion between 2011 and 2015. Much of the growth in Abu Dhabi’s building sector can be attributed to Vision 2030 that focuses heavily on building industry growth across various sectors.

Latest technologies

Continued growth in the UAE is supported by projects utilizing the latest in technologies across a range of industries. Mirdif City Centre is credited in the report as using the latest Enthalpy control technology in Air Handling Units to save electricity costs during favourable outdoor temperature climates, and overall the UAE has seen an increased demand in HVAC systems, growing from USD $1,494 million in 2010 to a projected $1,599 million by 2012.

Leader in green technologies

The UAE is identified by the report as the leader in adopting green measures in building design and the report provides examples of new green technologies that have been produced or utilized; RAK ceramics have developed the Luminos tile, which stores light energy during the day and then glows during darkness, ultimately conserving energy. Within the plumbing sector, RoeVac’s environmentally friendly and efficient vacuum sewage system was utilized on the Palm Jumeirah project. Dual flush toilets, which can save up to 65 per cent water, are in place in projects such as the Burj Khalifa Residential Tower.

Middle East Concrete, PMV Live and FM Expo are now operating under The Big 5 portfolio of events and will run alongside The Big 5 in 2011 and beyond.
