ADEC Future School, Abu Dhabi, UAE

KEO’s task is to help ADEC accomplish it’s vision of a new generation of world class school facilities in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. This will include developing and retrofitting two prototype school buildings for mixed gender use, with complete separation between the sexes into seven sites located in Abu Dhabi (Al Shamka, and Bani Yas) and Al Ain (Al Yahar Rifaa, Al Yahar Aliyah, Al Foaa, Zakher, Al Bateen). These model school designs will incorporate a program for Cycle 1 (Grades one to five) having 1250 students on seven sites. In addition, two sites in Al Ain (Al Yahar Aliyah and Al Bateen) are to have integrated Kindergartens of 240 students. They will also comply with standards in ADEC’s design manual and space program, as well as 2009 standards.
