Layali Al Mulla, Director of Buildings Department, said the initiative was welcomed by the local market, represented by building owners and contractors, and the municipality has begun to receive applications for building permits for industrial buildings by qualified contractors.

“Within a short period of launching the initiative, the number of projects has reached five. A specialised team has been formed to follow up the projects during all stages of the design to the implementation and ensure the safety of construction, achieving the goal of the Buildings Department by applying the best global best practices in the construction sector and reduce the cost to investors and owners,” she said.

The new system allows the contractor to design and supervise the industrial buildings without the need to appoint a consultant office, which will reflect positively on the speed of implementation, cost of projects, and open the way for the promotion of investments.

In turn, Fida Al Hammadi, Head of Research and Building Systems Section, noted that the department has already trained the cadres of 20 companies in the field of construction of metal structures. “They have become capable of designing and implementing industrial projects and take the role of consultants to obtain building permits from Dubai Municipality and oversee the progress of the projects,” she added.
