United Arab Emirates: Monday, July 08 - 2013 @ 10:10

During the period under review, the coating lines have undertaken projects of more than half a million square metres spanning the UAE, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Turkey and throughout the Middle East.

Leading projects won by Emirates Glass include the world-renowned Masdar Headquarters in Abu Dhabi, the Jeddah Airport, ITCC Information Technology and Communication Complex. To note a few others, there is the Jabal Omar expansion in KSA, Kuwait University in Kuwait and Credit Libanais in Lebanon.

Some of the major projects undertaken by Saudi American Glass include a tower in Makkah of Tayseer Hidaya and the National Dialogue Center in Riyadh, and the Courtyard by Marriott in Riyadh. Other notable projects include the Arab National Bank in Riyadh, Dammam University in Dammam, Rajehi University and Qassim University in Qassim, among others.

Ziad Yazbeck, Senior Vice-President, Sales and Marketing, Glass LLC, said, “We are extremely proud of the rapid growth of our coating lines, and the prestigious projects across the region are reflective of our high-quality products and services and the burgeoning demand for energy-efficient architectural glass. To have won projects worth Dhs100m speaks volumes of our track record in the region and our world-class capabilities to meet the stringent technical specifications required for the state-of-the-art iconic projects. Over the years, Glass LLC has won an excellent portfolio of projects, which I believe will serve to cement our credibility and position as a trusted supplier of glass products in the region.”

Meanwhile, Emirates Glass also announced the successful delivery of its third major project in Saudi Arabia – Olaya Towers, the latest addition to the iconic skyscrapers in Downtown Riyadh. To be completed in August this year, the Olaya Towers project is one of the most prominent buildings in Saudi Arabia’s capital city, boasting 40 and 42 storeys individually.

For the project, Emirates Glass utilized Emicool Sun NN series that allows generous light transmission with low indoor reflection and lower optimum SHGC [Solar Heat Gain Co-efficient].

Notably, Saudi American Glass has also delivered glass products to two defining developments on Riyadh’s commercial district, commonly known as King Fahd Road. These include the Kingdom Tower and Al Faisaliah Centre, the second and the third tallest buildings in Saudi Arabia respectively.

Glass LLC, through its subsidiaries – Emirates Glass, Lumiglass, Saudi American Glass and Emirates Float Glass, provides premium quality glass solutions to the construction, automotive, security and defence industries across domestic and international markets.
