Dubai Municipality has begun the comprehensive development and renovation of Al Safa and Al Maaref schools in Dubai at a cost of AED26 million. The work includes installation of an air-conditioning system, smart cooling, a fire-fighting system, and the establishment of laboratories for various scientific disciplines. The renovation project comes within the framework of Dubai Municipality’s strategy to build a happy and sustainable city.
Eng. Jabir Al Ali, Director of the General Maintenance Department at Dubai Municipality, said: “Since 2011, we have been carrying out annual maintenance work for many schools, but during this year, two specific projects were undertaken to carry out a near-total renovation of Al Safa and Al Maaref schools and these two development projects were awarded to a company.
“The work, which has been commenced under the supervision of Municipality engineers, include maintenance work that varies from reviewing the condition of the buildings and the surrounding walls, the level of facilities, and the cooling systems that will be completely replaced, which will reflect on the delivery of the two schools at the end of January in a completely different condition, as if they were new schools.”
