Along with other demand drivers, the Sanitary Ware Market Outlook report examines the Dubai Government’s Green Building Regulations, which are calling for more efficient public and private water flow, ultimately showing regulatory demand for increased sustainable building interiors. Presenting the BNC report, Portfolio Director for The Big 5 Dubai, Josine Heijmans, reveals that “the pipeline of active urban construction projects in the UAE is currently valued at USD 516bn.” Heijmans goes on to foresee that “new and retrofit projects will be expected to comply with green building initiatives and regulations introduced recently by the UAE Government.”

The Big 5 2017 will run from 26-29 November at Dubai World Trade Centre, and will dedicate free-to-attend CPD certified workshops (Continuing Professional Development) to these topics under the Architecture and Sustainability Talks, with the aim of advancing industry best practices in the Region and exploring the latest and most innovative sustainable interior design solutions. The exhibition will showcase 360-degree building solutions clustered in five product sectors: MEP services, Building Interiors & Finishes, Building Envelope & Special Construction, Construction Tools & Building Materials, and Construct Technology & Innovation.Last year’s edition of The Big 5 was the largest to date, attracting over 78,579 participants and 2,586 exhibiting companies from 59 countries.
