Dubai starts replacing non-fireproof building facades

DUBAI, September 23, 2017

The Dubai Land Department (DLD) has begun replacing non-fire-resistant building facades across Dubai through its regulatory arm, the Real Estate Regulatory Agency (Rera).

The project demonstrates Rera’s dedication to taking proactive and preventative measures that will reduce the incidence of fire accidents in the emirate, said the Emirati news agency Wam.

This project has been specifically launched to ensure the safety of residents and save lives, while also preserving the emirate’s reputation as a leading destination for business, investment, travel and accommodation, stated the report citing a senior official.

"By replacing building facades that do not comply with our fire resistance safety requirements, we are supporting DLD's vision of making Dubai the world’s safest residential and investment destination," remarked Mohammed Khalifa bin Hammad, senior director of the Rera.

"As DLD prioritises safety, investor confidence and customer happiness, it is implementing proactive solutions through its specialised departments to provide protection for both investors and residents," he added.

According to Rera, the project was launched based on the security, safety and environmental requirements of the Dubai Municipality and the Civil Defence Department.

It is now strongly recommending all house owners to replace non-fire-resistant building facades in collaboration with the city’s real estate developers.
