GAJ has been honoured at the 2021 MEED Projects Awards with two projects being recognised as National Winners.
The recently completed Miral Headquarters in Abu Dhabi, and Hilton Garden Inn and DoubleTree by Hilton Riyadh Financial District have both been selected as MEED Projects Awards National Winners.
The Miral Headquarters is a fluid and flexible office headquarters with open workspace concepts, engaging spaces and collaboration nodes. It is unusual as it features the region’s first indoor slide which runs from the first floor to the ground floor, adding a sense of playfulness to the workplace.
Also recently completed the DoubleTree by Hilton and Hilton Garden Inn Riyadh Financial District leads the way with an unusual design that was inspired by the practicality of the project brief where both hotels were to be contained within one building. The result is a cubic form where the two hotel `L` shaped masses have been flipped and interlocked to shape the cube.
Both projects have now been moved on to the final stage of judging to contest for the regional awards where they will compete for the MENA Project of the Year Award in their respective categories.
The MEED Projects Awards has become the leading stamp of quality and achievement for anyone operating in the MENA projects sector. The awards not only recognise the construction element of project delivery but also consider the value and quality of a project throughout its entire life cycle, from the design concept through to engineering and construction and its wider contribution to society and to the environment.
