Sustainability

MYAA has in place a comprehensive approach to sustainable design, supported by our Quality and Environmental Procedures in accordance to ISO 9001 and 14001 which is audited by The United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS). We understand sustainability not simply in terms of needs and obligations but in terms of human, cultural, social and economic development.

All of our projects are designed to be sustainable and provide legacy with the aim of reducing life-cycle costs and our carbon footprint.

Our design projects involve many disciplines including environmental design and engineering. MYAA has also developed sustainable housing prototypes for mass housing using energy efficient production technology involving the creation of Eco Homes, Eco Hotels and Eco Retail Centres.

Our work with leading UK and global retailers has led to the creation of zero carbon shopping malls. We have worked on Masdar City, The World First Carbon Neutral City.

We have been instrumental in the use of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) in designing Urban Masterplans and have used the same approach on buildings where saving energy and being resourceful are key economic and design drivers.

MYAA works towards global standards for sustainable design including LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), BREEAM Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method, QSAS, Estidama and others. Our team has designed and delivered LEED Platinum rated buildings which represent some of the most sustainable buildings in the world.
