According to a new report conducted by Proleads Research House there are US$698 billon worth of construction projects still active in the United Arab Emirates.

Taking this into account it is no wonder that Dubai is now the headquarters for the regional chapter of the Society of Facade Engineers (SFE). "Due to local pressure, we were asked to bring the society to Dubai in early 2008 and now have a growing membership of facade professionals in the region, " said Chris Macey, Vice-Chairman, SFE.
 
Macey is however concerned about the situation in the UAE. "There are a number of fairly significant things that we can do now to improve the quality and the lifetime performance of the buildings although this is not to decry the skills of the market, " explained Macey. "But if you are going to complete buildings with sustainable performances, you need to understand and appreciate the environmental performances of a building's facade in advance, before you design, construct and erect and thereafter go through a series of verification exercises which check the "as built" performance. This might include air pressure testing."
