Green concrete, solar power panels, and energy-efficiency systems are being used by Ajman Municipality and Planning Department to develop the $4m (AED15m) Central Laboratory Building, on which construction is 40% complete.

The lab will be Ajman’s first green building, and the municipality’s chairman, Rashid bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, said construction work is being implemented in line with Ajman’s vision to create sustainable and modern architecture for the UAE emirate.

Commenting on the project, Al Nuaimi said 90% of the building is made up of green, more sustainable concrete, which “will ensure its sustainability for 20 years, reduce its CO2 emissions by 80%, maintain air quality, and reduce pollution”.

He continued: “We have assigned a working team to oversee the use of resources, which will also reduce energy use, as well as install electricity-saving air-conditioning systems that are 40% more efficient compared to normal air-conditioning systems.

“We have also installed a solar panel system and water conservation system, to improve water drainage and benefit from agriculture.”
