In order to lay the foundations of architectural concepts and support evolution and excellence in building, construction and urban planning, both locally and internationally, we, at the Building Permits and Building Control Departments, put forward various publications.
These publications include regulations and specifications for buildings and green buildings, regulatory frameworks for the practice of engineering consultancy and procedures for issuing building permits, designs and other related publications and guidelines, including:
Regulating the Professional Practice of Engineering Consultancy in Dubai:
This booklet includes the Local Orders and Directives issued with regards to the regulations of the Professional Practice of Engineering Consultancy in Dubai. An electronic version is available through our website as well as through the Dubai Municipality’s Customer Service Section in the Al Tawar Branch.
Green Building Regulations and Specification Guidebook:
Issued in 2011, it is the first guidebook for the regulations and specifications for Green Buildings in Dubai. It includes detailed explanations on how to implement these regulations and specifications. We initially adopted them in Dubai governmental buildings and facilities and made them optional for private sector buildings and facilities.
These regulations and specifications became mandatory. They were adopted for all new building in Dubai as of March 2014.
