The Abu Dhabi General Services Company (Musanada) has begun Phase 2 construction works on its Delaija Wildlife Management Centre project, which is being built for Abu Dhabi’s Environment Agency (EAD) at a total cost of approximately $8.17m (AED30m).
The project, which covers a total area of 426,000m2, comprises the construction of administrative offices, a veterinary clinic, employee accommodation, utilities, as well as a hospitality lounge.
In addition, Musanada has confirmed that all the materials used in the project will be recyclable. The government entity is also keen on reducing energy and water consumption rates, in keeping with environment sustainability standards.
The Musanada project is in line with the Abu Dhabi Government’s vision to strike a balance between growth and the conservation of the environment and biodiversity. The government also intends to raise awareness about the need to protect endangered wild species.
Phase 1 of the Delaija project was delivered last year. The breeding and conservation centre is home to more than 1,000 animals.
