With the launch of Masdar City’s The Future Build, the region’s green building industry is getting a major boost. That’s because, beginning March 31st 2011, architects, engineers and contractors will finally have a home-grown online database of environmentally sustainable, third party-certified and locally available construction materials in UAE.

All products and materials listed on the portal have been assessed and selected according to the same standards and criteria that Masdar City uses to build and operate.

“Since we are a supplier, there is no better platform to demonstrate the true sustainability of our product. And for specifiers working in the region and on the Masdar City development, The Future Build speeds and simplifies their work – both by helping them source materials that they can count on, and by clearly displaying the eco-benefits of each product” said Ghassan Mashal – General Manger of Emirates Float Glass(EFG ).

With leading suppliers and specifiers already relying on The Future Build, this platform is fast emerging as the preferred marketplace for listing and sourcing sustainable construction materials.
