Al Ghurair Construction has announced that it has entered into a partnership agreement with Sky-Frame.

In a statement, Al Ghurair said that with the partnership, it will act as the exclusive supplier of the Swiss company’s seamless glass solutions in the Middle East.

Badr Abdulla Al Ghurair, chief executive officer of Al Ghurair Construction, commented: “We at Al Ghurair are always on the lookout for ground-breaking solutions that result in highly distinctive and aesthetic projects for our customers. 

“The company has always been involved in building the UAE, and our exclusive partnership with Sky-Frame is yet another step towards creating masterful residences and commercial properties that further develop the nation’s architectural landscape.

According to Al Ghurair, Sky-Frame’s glass products are compatible with the weather conditions in the Gulf. The manufacturer’s most popular technology reportedly comes in a slim 20-millimetre profile and offers thermal and sound insulation properties that protects residents from external heat, reducing cooling requirements of buildings while offering adequate protection from the elements.

Al Ghurair Construction has completed its first UAE project, Muraba Residences on the Palm Jumeirah, which integrates Sky-Frame as a core element of its structural design. Featuring 46 apartments and four penthouses, the development boasts bright, naturally-lit living spaces that offer views of the Palm islands.
