Director - Sustainability + Urban Design
at the Louis Berger Group
Masdar City is a 640 hectare new master-planned city situated approximately 20 kilometers to the east of Abu Dhabi’s old city. Masdar’s goal is to be a carbon neutral, zero-waste city supported by sustainable transportation and relying entirely on renewable sources of energy.

The landmark 1 million sf. Masdar Headquarters is among the first and most sustainable major developments in Masdar City-- producing more energy than it consumes.   In close collaboration with Masdar city-wide leadership to providing feedbacks  loops for the Masdar urban design and infrastructure strategies, the first priority has been energy load reduction through passive design strategies and innovative public space ventilation through modern wind towers.

Tasks included leading a series of integrated sustainability sessions with participation from Masdar leadership and international experts, managing an integrated project team to achieve Key Performance Indicators, and providing feedback loops to Masdar-wide leadership.
