Aluminium façade contractor, Alumco, has spent US $5.4 million (AED20 million) on upgrading its Dubai facilities to comply with Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (Leed) requirements.

Samer Barakat, managing director, Alumco, said: "The refurbishing of the engineering division will inspire us to improve upon design productivity.

Alumco's engineers and designers plan to develop more challenging  façadesfor the market's more stringent architectural demands and to comply with Leed requirements.

The engineering division is housed in a two-storey building in the Dubai Investment Park and has two workshops. A new unitised curtain wall production line has the capacity to produce 250,000m2 of unitised curtain wall per year, bolstering Alumco's annual production capacity to 500,000m2.

Barakat said the expansion would improve the interaction between various sub-departments, such as system development, structural engineering, shop drawings, fabrication drawings, and Cad/Cam, because they were now under one roof.
