Diyar Al Muharraq, one of the leading urban developers in the Kingdom of Bahrain, recently hosted a visit by a delegation from the Ministry of Works to the site of the development project.
The delegation was shown a brief presentation on the benefits of Sustainable Systems, Development and Construction by BBK, a real estate development company focusing on innovative engineered development technologies to deliver smart, sustainable projects, in line with its anticipated partnership with Diyar Al Muharraq on the Habitat Low cost sustainable Residential Project.
The principal elements of the upcoming sustainable villas include Radiant cooling systems that use cooled water, Air Handling Units to supply the required fresh air for inhabitants, Solar Domestic Hot Water Systems and Pressurized Water Systems to supply cold water to the cooling systems, thus saving up to 40% on energy and water consumption bills.
The presentation was followed by a tour of Diyar Homes and Dragon City, during which the visiting delegation was accompanied by officials from Diyar Al Muharraq. During their visit to Dragon City, the representatives from the Ministry of Works were also taken to Dragon Mall and the Asian Dining Street.
The visit to Diyar Al Muharraq by the delegation from the Ministry of Works was in line with the Ministry’s efforts to keep themselves well informed about all the sustainable projects taking place within the significant urban development that is Diyar Al Muharraq.
