Ducab breaks ground on three-storey headquarters in Dubai
Located in Jebel Ali, the 4,053sqm facility will serve as Ducab's global headquarters when completed in 2019
Ducab, a copper and aluminium wire and cable products manufacturer, has broken ground on a three-storey facility in Dubai.
Located in Jebel Ali, the 4,053m2 building will serve as the company’s global headquarters.
According to Ducab, the project has been designed to achieve LEED Gold certification when completed in 2019.
The manufacturer further noted that, in line with its commitment to environmental conservation, it will "echo the area’s indigenous plant life by creating a tree plantation alongside the facility", in addition to installing a garden on the building’s roof deck.
The tree plantation is inspired by the memory of the Founding Father of the UAE, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, who was an avid environmentalist, Ducab added.
Ducab operates six manufacturing facilities across four sites in the UAE, with all its production based in the country. Founded in 1979, it is jointly owned by the Investment Corporation of Dubai and Abu Dhabi's General Holding Corporation (Senaat).
Having recently added overhead conductors to its portfolio, Ducab has expanded from its home market in the UAE to the wider Middle East, Africa, Asia and Australasia, Europe, and the Americas.
