UCI Headquarter Building
UCI II Office Complex
UCI II Office Complex

The UCI2 Building is planned to be the first LEED Certified building in the Middle East outside of Dubai. A certification granted by the US Green Building Council, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) guarantees that the UCI2 Building will have reduced water consumption, improved indoor air quality, and enormously reduced energy consumption. This can only be made possible by the inclusion of a state-of-the-art geothermal system that includes individual water-to-air GSHPs for ultimate and individual climate control. In addition, the entire building ground loop is drilled below the building foundation allowing for efficiency and economic design.
