Beeah commemorated the completion of the highest point of its new Zaha Hadid designed headquarters with a topping out ceremony, held earlier this month at the site in Al Sajah
HE Salim Al Owais, chairman of Bee'ah; Patrik Schumacher, principal of Zaha Hadid Architects; and Edmund Mahabir, managing director of Al Futtaim Carillion, signed a special concrete panel at the topmost section of the building, in recognition of the important achievement.
Beeah says the event indicates the progress of the project, and is on course for a Q4 2018 opening.
The new Beeah HQ has been created with an environmentally sound structure, which will have minimal negative impact on the environment, across its lifetime, the company said.
With 270 construction workers, engineers and managers on site, the steelwork for the massive structure has been completed, while the architectural concrete dome which forms the centrepiece of the project has been put in place.
The main structure of the visitors centre and of the Main Dune is complete, while that of the standalone energy centre is 50% complete.
