The project

All projects at Masdar are required to meet the highest standards in terms of quality and material selection. The Pearl Estidama rating system of level three was achieved for this project and further demonstrates ISG's capability to be a leading contractor in terms of sustainable construction.

The project required ISG to design a space for 400 staff members. With a short programme, workshops were used early with the client and Masdar engineers to ensure the design met the Estidama credits required while delivering on the client’s expectations of how the space would function.


Pearl Estidama Level 3 was achieved and monitored throughout by the stringent QA/QC procedures adopted at Masdar City. The City is a sustainable development and is leading the world in how modern cities can accommodate rapid expansion while minimising waste and water and energy consumption.
