Abu Dhabi Education Council (ADEC) intended to develop a set of kindergartens in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi as part of its Abu Dhabi Future School Program.
Each Kindergarten has a built-up area of approximately 5,100 sqm and is divided into approximately 16 classrooms, a library, breakout area, exterior playgrounds and a service block.
Ramboll has been appointed by Dewan Architects to provide Estidama and Sustainability Consultancy for the kindergartens and also environmental assessment for compliance with Estidama requirements.
The project target was a 2 Pearl rating under the Abu Dhabi Green Building Rating - Estidama Pearl Rating System.
Among others, the project has implemented a number of sustainable strategies such as energy efficient design, efficient lighting, water efficient landscape and high-efficiency water fixtures. Outdoor thermal comfort is ensured by the wide implementation of green areas and shading devices.
Each of the six kindergartens has been approved by Abu Dhabi Urban Planning Council (UPC) under the Estidama Pearl Rating System for a 2 Pearl rating.
