Built in the heart of an active industrial area of Dubai, the Four Seasons Staff Housing project is a distinguishable building among the surrounding environment. Consisting of two parallel buildings with a central connection, the H-shaped structure stands out with floor-to-floor windows built within concrete blocks. The original design featured cast-in-place concrete columns and cast-in-place post-tensioned slabs with external concrete block walls. When presented with the design’s original time and cost estimates, the owner called upon e.construct for their value-engineering expertise.
