The Diamond Innovation Centre is the first Positive Energy Building in the region. This means that over its anticipated 50-year lifespan, the building itself will produce 140 percent of its energy requirement, thus offsetting emissions during construction, operation and decommissioning.
This iconic building will be off-grid and provide a state-of-the-art amphitheatre for 700 people, as well as a spacious atrium for exhibitions.
Through research and development, as well as dedicated conferences and exhibitions, this world-class institution will showcase the latest global advancements in sustainability.
Training courses will be offered alongside advisory services to students and professionals seeking to broaden their knowledge in this rapidly evolving industry.
Diamond Developers’ research program started in 2014 and has provided funding to a dozen research programs in partnership with the University of California, Davis and its network of partner universities in Lebanon, Egypt, and Palestine.
The Diamond Innovation Centre will house a “smart unit” which will monitor the city’s environmental performance and CO2 footprint, and support the publication of an annual Greenhouse Inventory.
