Preliminary details about Bee'ah's planned new plant, a Middle Eastern waste management company, have been revealed by Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA). The new plant will use only energy from renewable sources and will serve as an educational center to promote good conservation practices in the area. The 90,000-square-foot Bee’ah plant in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates, is expected to have an area of 7,000 square meters and use the local breeze for natural ventilation.
The very first photos of the plant reveal the familiar style of overflowing forms of Hadidi, which fits well with the surrounding landscape. In the form of several large futuristic sand dunes, the plant itself rises to a height of 18 m. The building also has a large courtyard, which ZHA resembles a desert oasis.
A curious fact is that the new plant will have a movable facade, which will allow air to pass into the building during the cooler months.
A very interesting detail about the new facility is also that a significant part of the building will be built from materials collected from local construction waste.
It has not yet been officially announced when the plant will be completed, as well as the budget for the project.
