Saint-Gobain has announced plans to develop a positive-energy home in Masdar City, Abu Dhabi.

Through the use of high-performance materials and construction methods, the French manufacturer’s Multi-Comfort House will produce more energy than it consumes.

The project, which is scheduled to complete by 2019, was announced during the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) between Masdar and Saint-Gobain.

Yousef Baselaib, Masdar’s executive director of sustainable real estate, commented: “Masdar City is a hub for innovation and sustainability, and a natural home for Saint-Gobain to showcase its state-of-the-art capabilities in sustainable living.”

Hady Nassif, general delegate of Saint-Gobain in the Middle East, added: “For 350 years, Saint-Gobain has consistently demonstrated its ability to invent products that improve quality of life. We share Masdar’s commitment to creating a more sustainable future for the generations to come, and our Multi-Comfort House is proof of that commitment.”

The Masdar City unit will be the first of its kind to be developed by Saint-Gobain in the Middle East. The house will be fully adapted to the arid conditions of the UAE, according to its developer.

Saint-Gobain’s Multi-Comfort House concept covers all aspects of comfortable home living, and extends to tertiary amenities such as offices, shops, and public buildings.

The company has built a total of 18 Multi-Comfort House projects around the world since it developed the concept in 2004.
