Dewan’s scope is to develop the architectural and engineering design, the concept of which was designed by a Singaporean firm, and provide onsite post contract supervision services. The new school, which will replace an existing structure, is in line with Aldar Academies’ strategic mission to create sustainable educational spaces that offer superior aesthetics and information and communications technologies, and provide world-class educational facilities within a stimulating and secure environment.

Says Mohamed Al Assam, Founder, Chairman and Managing Director of Dewan Architects & Engineers:

“There is a growing demand for high quality educational establishments in Abu Dhabi and the UAE – a need that is being proactively addressed by Aldar Academies. We are proud to form part of this project, and endeavour to provide the client with commitment and excellence to ensure a healthy environment for students while supporting the educational process in the emirate.”

“In designing any of our projects, we are always fully conscious of the need to design buildings that are sustainable by reducing the negative impact of these buildings on the environment. Once complete, this three-storey building will be a leading example of the high quality, high performance buildings that are built with the environment in mind, another milestone in Dewan’s pursuit of delivering buildings that are high in aesthetics and sustainable,” he added.

The school will be located in the Al Bateen area in Abu dhabi and will cater to 1,200 students from Y7 to Y13, with a wide range of classrooms, labs, shared common spaces, home economics facilities, a multi-material workshop, music classrooms, drama studios, an indoor swimming pool, a multipurpose hall, a performance hall, an educational courtyard (oasis), administration facilities and outdoor sport facilities.
