For the Client, we have designed their Fujairah branch office. The design reflects the combination of both their simplicity and their modern look to tomorrow.
MUC was responsible from the first sketch on paper up to delivery of this building. This includes the architectural detailing, MEP, structural design and authorities approvals. This steel structure building, meets todays’ sustainability requirements, such as wall and roof insulation, double glass and a double façade at the entrance.
The double-height entrance has a pleasant feeling and serves well as a reception area for visitors.
For this project; the M-Tower, we are asked to examine both the technical and financial feasibility of the project. The client has asked us to make a feasibility analysis in a form of a report to be submitted to the bank. The client wanted to look for opportunities to invest with leverage in this building.
The result of this report is a cash flow analysis, detailed description of the technical aspects and the construction cost. In addition, we have looked at the rent ability of the project, revenue versus expenses and a cash flow analysis for the next 10 years through a DCF analysis (Discounted Cash Flow Analysis). The gross initial yield and the first-year revenues played a major role in the findings of this report.
The existing engineering building at the Port of Fujairah, definitely needed a proper facelift. Normally such building would be demolished to be replaced with a new one. Since renovation contributes to the sustainability concept, re-use of the existing structures and adding square meters in the form of an additional floor was an ideal solution. Within a tight budget, we have been constructed to scrutinize the existing building and to devise a concept for this.
The existing building consists of two parts; one part is constructed in 1985 and the other part in 1989. The idea is to extend this building with additional square meters and by adding a new floor on top of the existing and old structure, we had the idea to combine all structures into a new building.
The gray collar which can be seen, melts the structures together into one building. The projecting portion on the corner emphasizes an orientation point, it is manager’s office.
