Dubai: New Standards for Engineering Excellence Initiative Introduced

Al Watan, 19 December 2023: The Dubai Municipality has announced it has introduced new updates to the Engineering Excellence Initiative.

They have added the Owner’s Opinion standard, which provides opportunities for owners to evaluate the engineering consulting offices and building contracting companies which implement their projects.

A standard for distinguished projects with architectural artistic value and a standard for using Building Information Modelling systems have also been added.

They are minimum requirements for an engineering office to obtain a five-star rating.

The Municipality is looking to improve the level of trust between the owner and the consultant or contractor.

They are also looking to increase competition between companies specialising in building and construction.

This will subsequently positively affect the quality of construction projects in the Emirate.
