Spiralite insulated ductwork brings energy efficiency and improved air quality to the largest new Sofitel in the Middle East.
The Wafi complex in Dubai has expanded through a series of development projects, and the extensive site now offers an impressive combination of retail outlets, quality restaurants, health and leisure facilities, and residences famous across the UAE.
The current project is Phase 8 of an expansion of both the retail and leisure capacity of the complex, with a new fifty two storey hotel tower which will be the largest Sofitel property in the Middle East and is set to become their future flagship in the region.
The Sofitel Dubai Wafi, due to open in early 2019, will feature 501 luxury guestrooms, 86 suites, and 97 studio residences, along with a luxury spa, swimming pools, gymnasium, ballroom, meeting room and restaurant facilities. All of these facilities require a high volume of air at low temperatures to function successfully across a massive area of over 192,000 square metres.
The developers have introduced a number of innovative technologies to conserve energy and save operating costs, including Spiralite insulated ductwork.
The cutting edge system offers unrivalled airflow and thermal efficiencies, optimal fire and smoke performance with a robustness that gives the ductwork an extended lifespan. Other important benefits are the quality of the conditioned air, in terms of cleanliness, temperature and humidity, and the acoustic advantages that Spiralite is able to offer.
Having successfully completed several other projects in both Dubai and Abu Dhabi, this is Spiralite’s first contract with MEP Contractor Drake & Scull International in the UEA. This extensive contract is being managed by our exclusive manufacturer and licensed delivery partner in the region, Khansaheb Industries LLC, from its production and distribution facility in central Dubai.
Khansaheb and Spiralite are fully qualified and pre-approved to design, manufacture, supply and install energy saving ductwork in the UAE. Spiralite is fully compliant in the region with Abu Dhabi Trustmark approval, Estidama compliance and a listing in Masdar’s The Future Build.
