Special Projects
Each project is unique and has its own dynamics however the challenges are limited in prototype development i.e. residential, commercial, retail etc.

The capacity and the strength of a designer are tested on a special application project where all the parameters of design are governed by the processes. One really needs to understand the whole requirement of the end user and design the services to cater to the requirements.

Apart from handling dynamics of a project; efficacious management of time, cost, manpower and technology integration of resources requires a clear understanding borne of brain storming sessions with end users.

CEC has been involved in the development of unique projects like building maintenance hangars for A380 double-decker planes; monitoring and controlling power distribution centers through SCADA and detention centers for high-end personalities and sophisticated training centers for dogs in Dubai Customs.

CEC has successfully delivered these projects to the satisfaction of end users.
Special Projects
  • Maintenance Hangars for A380 Aircraft for Emirates Airlines at Dubai Airport.

    Client: Emirates Airlines

    Location: Dubai

    Built up area: 435,350 sq. ft.

    About the project:
    Airbus has launched its first fleet of double decker planes A380 and M/s Emirates was one of the major buyer. In order to maintain the Aircraft the existing maintenance sheds were not adequate due to height constraints.

    M/s Emirates decided to develop four sheds to cater maintenance of four A380 planes at a time at Dubai International Airport.

    CEC was involved to monitor the overall quality and progress of installation for all services. The maintenance hangers is 70 meter high with air conditioning facility, pressurized air conditioning system,-----, heavy duty drainage piping to take the stresses of the plane load, lighting and power distribution in accordance with Dubai Aviation Authority was successfully completed.

    Building for Etihad Railway, Abu Dhabi

    CEC was associated in designing part of the services for the first phase which is approximately 264 km along with various structures.

    Abu Dhabi also mandates compliances to Green Building development under the government body of “ESTIDAMA”. All CEC designs were compiled to “Pearl 2” rating achieving resources minimization and efficient design of services.

    SCADA Control Centre for FEWA at Umm Al Quain.

    Client: Federal Electricity & Water Authority

    Location: Umm al-Quwain

    Built up area: 39,274 sq. ft.
