The Dubai Pearl mixed-use development in the UAE has received LEED gold precertification from the US Green Building Council for incorporating sustainable concepts.

The 20-million-square-foot development is situated within the Dubai technology and media freezone and will feature four mixed-use towers connected through the base and sky-bridge at the top, according to worldinteriordesignnetwork.com.

The development is expected to be complete in 2013.

The tower is accessible from arterial highways – Sheikh Zayed Road and Al Sufouh Road – and the elevated ring road.

Sustainable concepts in line with the LEED green building rating system will include incorporation of environmentally friendly technologies to conserve energy, recycle water and reuse assets in the design.

The tower has been designed to reduce electricity, gas and water usage by the community.

The scheme will also feature a large-scale solar-boosted water-heating plant, high-efficiency building façades, an optimised ventilation system for the largest undercover car-parks in the world, extensive grey water collection and reuse, green roofs and heat recovery systems.

Waste management is also set in place to ensure the recycling of material and to minimise waste, while recycling facilities for paper, glass and food waste will also be installed at the site.

Demolition waste from the site will be reused by the Dubai municipality for land development work.

The development is expected to blend in harmoniously with the street-level landscape.
