Progress has been made on UAE-headquartered waste management company Bee’ah’s headquarters that is designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, with the construction work on the project being reviewed by officials from Sharjah Municipality.

Bee'ah said on its Twitter handle that the director-general of Sharjah Municipality, HE Dr. Thabet Al Tarifi and representatives from the municipality toured the site of the building that is located in Al Saj’ah and were briefed on the construction progress by the group chief executive officer of Bee’ah, HE Khaled Al Huraimel.

Bee’ah’s headquarters has a total built up area of 7,450m² and takes inspiration from sand. Upon being operational the building will be fully powered by renewable energy, with a photovoltaic farm with approximately 3,000 solar panels being built to generate electricity for the office.

The visit comes weeks after Bee’ah announced that it has been appointed as the waste management partner for Egypt’s New Administrative Capital, which is being developed by the nation’s Administrative Capital for Urban Development and is one of the largest urban development projects in the world.

Earlier this year, Bee’ah has inked a deal with UAE-based startup Seramic Materials that makes sustainable ceramics from recycled materials to explore potential of recycling ashes from municipal solid waste incinerators (MSWI) into construction materials.
