Ajman Municipality and Planning Department won the Eco-Friendly Park qlk Award at the 5th Theme Parks and Entertainment Development Middle East Conference for the Zayed Oasis initiative launched  by the department as part of its Year of Zayed initiatives.

Dr. Eng.

For this reason, the task of supervision, design and execution of the project was entrusted to highly qualified local professionals that worked tirelessly to ensure the success of the project, and that the final outcome exceeded all expectations.

Dr. Eng. Bin Omair said that the crew used environmentally friendly materials and were determined not to waste any resources by using recycled wood. This keenness to preserve environmental resources is in line with the late Sheikh Zayed’s vision towards preserving the environment and achieving sustainability.  The late Sheikh Zayed’s visionary wisdom was ahead of its time; proving that he was a devoted leader who cared deeply about doing what is best for future generations.

He also stated that this award is another victory added to the department's list of impressive achievements gained due to the the ongoing support of His Highness Sheikh Rashid bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, Chairman of the Department, as well as the guidance of His Excellency Abdul Rahman Mohammad Al Nuaimi, Director General of the Department, who were keen on adopting leading projects and encouraging qualified professionals to complete this remarkable project within a 100 days of work.

Bin Omair praised the efforts of the Sheikh Zayed Housing Program for providing large amounts of recycled wood to be used in the construction of the Oasis. He also thanked the contracting firms for providing 587 square meters of concrete, with a green concrete ratio of approximately 13%.

It is worth mentioning that the main purpose behind the Sheikh Zayed Oasis project is to celebrate the Year of Zayed and commemorate his memory in a popular area in the middle of a futuristic residential neighborhood in Mohammed Bin Zayed City with a total area of 93 thousand square feet.
