Multiforms Signs Dh175 Million Contract With Arabtec For Glass Cladding

Multiforms, architectural façade specialists and a subsidiary of Emaar Industries & Investments, has won a contract worth Dh175 million from leading contracting company Arabtec for the supply and installation of the external cladding for Tiara United, a first-of-its-kind two-tower project on Sheikh Zayed Road, Dubai. Multiforms will create four uniquely colored zones that blend into one another as the building ascends in imitation of the light spectrum.

The façade work will also have an organic feel to it, similar to the veins on a leaf.

“Undertaking the cladding work of a tower of this nature is a rare honour and we are privileged to be part of this prestigious operation. Tiara United will be an exceptional addition to Dubai’s already vibrant skyline and Multiforms is pleased to play a leading role in achieving this purpose,” said Firas Al Rifai, Managing Director, Multiforms.

The glass cladding for the buildings, which is set to be complete in 2010, will cover over 45,000 square meters. The twin towers are slated for commercial use and will rise up to 61 floors, affording an additional 350,000 sq feet of office space.
