Dubai residents are going to get a wide range of new buildings as Dubai is presently working on all but 25k new buildings as well as residential skyscrapers and villas.

The Buildings Department at Dubai Municipality shoulders the responsibility to supervise the development of 25,124 buildings that will be available in all corners of the emirate and at different phases of construction.

“When we oversee a project, it also means that we are responsible in supervising the engineering process of projects that have been issued building permits,” said Khalid Mohammad Saleh, director of Buildings Department.

According to Saleh’s elucidation, the municipality received 25,419 requests to perform structural audits in this year’s first half, which is 20 per cent boost in comparison with 2015.

“In the first six months of 2016, we also witnessed the completion of 5,837 buildings. This is more than last year’s figures, when 2,906 buildings were constructed,” said Saleh.

Assessments are carried out on buildings under construction from time to time, as the technical and structural attributes of the buildings are evaluated. It is clarified by Eng. Abdullah Shezawi, from the engineering supervision section at Dubai Municipality.

He also included in his clarification that as construction at night is forbidden, companies during the summer have to observe the midday break rule from 12.30pm-3pm, and lost time can be compensated by working later into the night.

As per Dubai Municipality’s standard process direction, companies intended to work at night in residential regions have to attain an authorization permit from the municipality prior to the construction.

In accordance with the municipality’s rules and regulations, companies are permissible to complete construction work from 6am-8pm.
