Middle East based environmental and waste management company Bee’ah has selected Zaha Hadid Architects to construct its new headquarters building in Sharjah, UAE.

The building provides infrastructure, tools and support to help individuals, communities, businesses and cities achieve environmental goals.

It is said to be part of the company’s ongoing investment to transform their attitudes and behaviours.

The new building is said to provide the company with an administrative centre of sustainable construction with Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) platinum certification.

"The building provides infrastructure, tools and support to help individuals, communities, businesses and cities achieve environmental goals."

According to the company, the building will be used as a learning resource to demonstrate practical environmental awareness to the wider community, and also provides ultra-low carbon and minimal water consumption in operation and minimised material consumption in construction.

Zaha Hadid designed the building in response to Bee’ah’s natural environment to provide comfort for visitors and staff, while reducing energy and resource consumption.

Formal composition of the building was informed by its desert context as a series of dunes that were orientated to optimise prevailing shamal winds.

Bee’ah noted the two central dunes intersect and connect through a courtyard, improving natural ventilation and increase indirect sunlight to spaces within.

Zaha Hadid said the structure of the building reduces material consumption through architectural and structural integration, as well as recycled material recovery.
