Four Seasons Staff Housing
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.
The design consists of precast insulated cladding panels, internal precast frames and walls, and Hollow Core Slabs with the following key features: • Continuous insulation with no thermal breaks • Flat slabs at cantilevers and corridors • Fast construction • Reduced internal finishes In 2014, the project received Honorable Mention under the Multifamily Housing category at the prestigious PCI Awards.
