H.H. Shaikh Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE finance minister, deputy ruler of Dubai and chairman of Dubai Municipality (DM), has approved the contract for construction of a new centre in the Al-Kifaf area near Al-Karama, Dubai.

The announcement was made by Eng. Hussain Nasser Lootah, director general, Dubai Municipality, who said that the project would have a total cost of $7.35mn (AED 24mn) and that work would start in May.

"The building will become one of the landmarks of Dubai, and will be a good model of green building,” Lootah said.

The new centre will be a two-storey building that includes service counters and offices built in an area of 60,000m2. Two lifts and escalators will be provided in the building, in addition to a waiting area and a multi-purpose hall.

Lootah said the new project comes as part of Dubai Municipality's keenness on setting up municipality centres in different areas of the emirate to fulfill the needs of public hailing from different social and geographic strata.

Lootah added that the construction of the building will be in line with the directives of H.H. Shaikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, vice president and prime minister of UAE and ruler of Dubai, with regard to the creation of an environmentally-sustainable city and the promotion of green economy.
