0-14 tower

Dubai, UAE

Project Summary

O-14 Tower is a commercial office building located in Business Bay, Dubai. The Tower is comprised of 22 floors, two podiums levels and four basement parking levels with a total of 28,000 m2. The building’s unique architecture (exoskeleton) incorporates more than 1,000 circular openings of various sizes acting as a double facade.

Due to the extreme environmental and weather conditions in Dubai, buildings consume large amounts of energy throughout the year. The high temperatures cause systems, consumption, and cost to be a large part of most commercial buildings’ operations and expenditure. As with the majority of buildings in Dubai, O-14 had always suffered from high utility bills, particularly during the summer months. The property managers, H&H, contacted Taka Solutions to perform an energy audit in order to identify the potential inefficiencies as well gain a better operational understanding of the key energy-consuming systems within the building. H&H looked to benefit from Taka’s expertise and transform O-14 Tower into a high-performance asset.
