Abu Dhabi Housing Authority launches Bayti scheme
The new Abu Dhabi Housing Authority 'Bayti' initiative will provide 58 structurally and architecturally pre-approved housing designs
Abu Dhabi Housing Authority (ADHA) has launched the 'Bayti' initiative for citizens in the emirate.
The new scheme, which was developed to ease the burden on AbuDhabi Emirati families utilising ADHA's housing loans, provides 58 structurally and architecturally pre-approved housing designs.
His Excellency Saif Bader Al Qubaisi, director general of ADHA, said: "This initiative will support building residential communities based on the highest standards of quality and efficiency, which will guarantee the provision of security and comfort to the citizens now and into the future.
"We also encourage consultants to bring more creative ideas to the table and partner with ADHA in the forthcoming phases of Bayti to continue to provide innovative and sustainable designs."
ADHA's Bayti system gives home-owners a choice of pre-approved exterior designs, with modular interiors that can be configured to suit different family sizes.
The initiative has also shortened build time, with full construction to be completed within a maximum period of two years.
The expected cost and interest-free loan amount for each house of $37.7m (AED2m).
His Excellency Eng. Al Khalifa Al Qemzi, executive director, projects & planning, ADHA, said: "Bayti has made home construction simple, speedy and efficient, as previously the process was lengthy and time-consuming, involving multiple agencies and approvals.
"The pre-approved building plans, which are configurable and can adapt to any family, have been developed in partnership with municipalities and private sector consultants and ensure a smooth and orderly construction flow."
