Dubai Design District

Dubai Design District, consisting of 10 buildings (5F-12F) just East of Dubai Downtown will provide a future hub for fashion design related companies, ranging from well known high end international design houses to startup SMEs. Koltay Facades are providing facade engineering services for Design & Built procurement, including Facade Performance Specifications, technical tender reviews, design workshops and site meetings, document reviews and approvals of drawings, engineering calculations and material data. The main system is unitized glazed curtain walling with integrated sail shading features. Further packages include courtyard glass walls, glass fin supported glazing, glass balustrades, glazed skylights, shopfronts with folding doors. The project utilizes existing concrete structures, where the brand new facade design has to correspond to existing site conditions. The project runs on a tight construction schedule.
