Abu Dhabi General Services Company (Musanada) on Tuesday revealed that it has begun the construction of six schools in the emirate worth more than AED1 billion ($272 million).
In collaboration with the Department of Education and Knowledge (ADEK), the new schools are being built across Bani Yas, Al Rahba, Al Riyadh, Al Dhaher, Al Bahia and Shiab Al Ashkhar, state news agency WAM reported.
The execution of the projects is part of Musanada’s efforts to realise the vision of President Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan towards delivering projects that offer a stimulating educational environment to both students and teachers, it added.
Musanada said that eco-sustainability would play a big part in the construction of the educational projects.
It added that all new schools will deploy the latest electromechanical systems, including air conditioning and firefighting systems.
It also said that the construction would conform to best practices as laid down in the Abu Dhabi Future Schools Programme relating to the design of the classrooms and multipurpose halls.
ADEK said the schools would be equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and tools to support the educational process in Abu Dhabi.
