Otak is currently providing full-consultancy services to a government agency for their staff accommodation in Mirfa, a city in the Western Region of Abu Dhabi. The development includes 40 buildings comprising 400 residential units and retail services, all of which are consistent with the 2030 Mirfa Master Plan.

The project has been approved by the Abu Dhabi Urban Planning Council (UPC), and Otak is now finalizing the Estidama approval process for a 2 Pearl Building rating and 1 Pearl Community rating for the design-rating stage. Estidama is Abu Dhabi’s sustainability program, and, according to the UPC, the aim of the Pearl Building Rating System is to “promote the development of sustainable buildings and improve quality of life.” This project will provide a higher quality of life, longer building lifespan and long-term cost savings through sustainable measures associated with an integrated design process. Otak is proud to be the lead consultant on this groundbreaking project, which meets all new design guidelines for streets, the public realm and sustainable practices.
