The judges placed first in the category of Commercial Project of the Year the Abu Dhabi Office Tower, which is the work of Goettsch Partners.
This award recognises project designs that provide an excellent working environment for employees, while also making the most of sustainable initiatives in a sector that is traditionally very energy reliant.
The panel all agreed that it would be a pleasure to work in such a building and called it “an elegant design solution with excellent attention to detail”
Raj Achan, director of business development- Middle East and India said: “This award goes out to the entire project team and also the client who has been supporting this entire project and who has been very proactive, and the rest of the sub-consultants who worked with us as well.
“Recently, the project was also awarded the Estidama Pearl 1 rating, so that’s a great achievement.
“The project is a complete open plan office. One of the reasons that the client selected us is because we were thinking about the building from the inside to the outside. We also focused greatly on the role of natural lighting.”
