The Sheikh Zayed Desert Learning Centre (SZDLC) is an important educational and research facility combining knowledge and learning through interactive exhibits, multimedia and visual materials. The building, which received a five pearl Estidama Pearl rating and a LEED Platinum certification, is located at the Al Ain Zoo. For the project, Havelock One was signed responsible to supply all joinery works, including the Corian reception desk and acrylic light feature above, kitchens, the visitor’s canteen, meeting room furniture and audio-visual equipment. In addition, we manufactured and installed the intricate three-dimensional Corian bench seating over several areas of the institution, some spanning up to 15m in length.
