In 2013, Zaha Hadid Architects‘ proposal was selected as the winner of the architectural competition to design the new Headquarters of Bee’ah, United Arab Emirates’ leading environmental management company.


The building by ZHA, scheduled for completion in late 2018, is now rising in a semi-desert area near the city of Sharjah.  As in December 2017, most structures, all structural steelworks, and the imposing concrete dome of the headquarters have been completed.

The 7,000-square-meter (75,000-square-foot) Headquarters building is aimed to become one of the most sustainable in the world. Zero net energy consumption and LEED Platinum Certification will be achieved through an array of technical and design solutions, including photovoltaic cells coupled with a 1,890 kWhs powerback battery system by Tesla, energy and water saving and recycling technologies, natural lighting, passive heating and cooling, and sustainable landscaping – which includes water ponds and palm groves,  carefully positioned to provide shade, cooling, and protection from sand storms.
The facade of the building is operable and can be opned in In milder months to allow natural ventilation and minimize artificial cooling.
Also the captivating wavy shape of ZHA’s building, which recalls the sand dunes around it, has been conceived to exploit the prevailing winds crossing the site.
Arranged around a central courtyard, called “the oasis”, the Headquarters will accommodate an entrance lobby, an auditorium, a visitors education center and gallery, management offices, and an administrative section.
