The Siemens Middle East Headquarters at Masdar City was inaugurated in January 2014, marking a commitment by Siemens to the future of the UAE and the Middle East, and is the first LEED Platinum-certified office building in Abu Dhabi.

Siemens has celebrated the first anniversary of moving into its award-winning Middle East headquarters at Abu Dhabi’s Masdar City in the UAE. In its first year the building achieved a 63 per cent saving of energy consumption and a 52 per cent saving of water consumption, compared to a standard Abu Dhabi office building.

“When we moved into our new headquarters a year ago, I said it was important for Siemens to ‘walk the talk’ in the region,” said Dietmar Siersdorfer, CEO of Siemens Middle East and UAE. “We inaugurated our new headquarters as a further commitment to our long-term presence in the UAE and the Middle East, and to set an example with our actions”. “I’m proud to say that one year on we have made an important statement about the significance of innovative, intelligent infrastructure in the Middle East. Siemens and Masdar have proved that with the right mindset, partners and technology, it is possible to dramatically reduce the environmental impact of a UAE office building.”

A fully-integrated building management system from Siemens automatically adjusts lighting and temperature levels, significantly reducing resource consumption. The building also has security systems and fire alarm and gas suppression systems from Siemens Building Technologies.
