The design and construction of the structure and facade of the Uptown Tower is carried out by Six Construct alone, with all other trades enhanced by Besix Design's expert teams. The company can rely on the expertise of its in-house design office, as well as on the extensive experience of its operations teams in the field of skyscrapers. Six Construct and its parent company, BESIX, have been involved in the construction of numerous high rise buildings in recent years, in the Middle East, Europe, Africa and Australia. These comprise the 828-metre Burj Khalifa in Dubai.
The contract to design and build the Uptown Tower was awarded to Six Construct by DMCC, the world’s No.1 Free Zone. In line with DMCC’s sustainability efforts, the Uptown Tower aims to achieve a LEED Gold certification ("Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design"). BESIX and Six Construct have demonstrated in the past their ability to meet the highest requirements in this field. For example, the Carpe Diem tower in Paris has set new standards in the field of ecological design with triple environmental certification, a first in Europe.
