American University of Sharjah shortlisted for Project of the Year- International at the CIBSE awards 2016 Share this article

Cundall is delighted to be shortlisted for the CIBSE 2016 International Project of the Year award for the American University of Sharjah, Campus Service Centre.

This Award recognises the international project that most effectively demonstrates achievement of high levels of user satisfaction and comfort and outstanding measured building performance, energy efficiency and reduced carbon emissions.

Cundall was employed in the capacity of lead consultant where we provided the full design, project management, cost consultancy and site supervision services for the campus service centre, youth centre and new service block projects. There were no sustainability regulations in force in Sharjah at the time of the design of this project but the university wanted to achieve an LEED silver level of sustainability.

The Campus Service Centre was designed, evaluated and constructed to LEED Silver/Gold standard, and was used as the catalyst for implementing sustainable initiatives within the other elements of the development, and indeed subsequent projects on the site.

Richard Stratton Managing Director for MENA comments: “ We are thrilled to be shortlisted for the CIBSE International project of the Year. Having previously won the Emirates Green Building Council, Green Building of the Year 2015 it is great to see that we are achieving recognition internationally as well. The campus service centre is truly unique in the Middle East, where integrated design has created very affordable sustainability, and is something that myself and the team are very proud of. It cements our sustainable credentials that we embed within our company ethos. The project is a shared passion between the whole project team and proves that full integrated sustainable development is both affordable and practical. We hope that this project gets the further recognition it deserves and goes on to win at the CIBSE awards.”

The CIBSE awards will be held on Wednesday 24th February 2016 at the Grosvenor House, Park Lane, London.

When I tell people I design buildings in the Emirates, everyone thinks of the lavish buildings which match the perceived lavish lifestyle of the residents and visitors that typically gets depicted on the television.
