Adnec Glazing Work Success

Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company (Adnec) said glazing work was nearing completion on Phase 1 of its state-of-the-art exhibition and conference centre currently under construction in the UAE capital.

Work on the new Exhibition Centre began in December 2005 with the deadline for the first phase of construction being February 2007.

The completion of glazing work will mark a major milestone in the progress of the iconic project and signify that construction of phase one of the venue is entering its final stages.

The glazing project involves using 3,400 square metres of specially-designed angled reflective glass to build an enormous concourse, which upon completion of the entire centre, will be one of the largest air-conditioned exhibition concourses in the World at 18,000sqm.

The angled reflective glass will help to maximise the use of natural light and keep heat out of the venue, creating a vibrant and comfortable atmosphere for visitors.

The use of such a large amount of glass will also ensure that the Exhibition Centre is one of the most visually exciting buildings in Abu Dhabi.

Adnec chief executive officer Simon Horgan said: “It is our intention to provide a visitor experience that has not been witnessed by the UAE exhibitions industry before.

“The glazing, as with every single aspect of the building, has been designed with visitors, exhibitors and organisers in mind.

“Innovation and usability have been of great importance to us throughout the process and I look forward to early next year when visitors can begin to experience this incredible venue for themselves.”
