Did You Know!!!

Yas Island (Arabic: جزيرة ياس) is a man-made island in Abu DhabiUAE. It is the second largest island in the world. The island’s development project was initiated in 2006 by Abu Dhabi-based Aldar Properties (master developer), with the aim of turning the island into a multi-purpose leisure, shopping and entertainment centre at an estimated total cost of over $40 billion. This investment was planned as a multi-staged project to unfold in phases until 2018, with project stakeholders foreseeing the possibility of extending development by adding new venues and upgrading existing facilities. It occupies a total land area of 2,500 ha (25 km2), of which 1,700 ha will be claimed for development. Yas Island holds the Yas Marina Circuit, which has hosted the Formula One Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix since 2009.

Construction of our new office

Our new offices are under construction on site. The office is being built out of shipping containers. Each container measures 8 feet wide by 40 feet long by 9 feet tall. The containers make ideal building materials as they have an infinite life span when stationary and properly maintained. Environmentalists have embraced this, applauding the recycling inherent in these types of offices.

The new offices will be ready in the last quarter of the year. We can’t wait to move to the island!

Did You Know!!!

The Flevopolder is a region of reclaimed land, in FlevolandNetherlands. It is the largest Island formed by reclaimed land in the world with a total land surface of 97,000 hectares, completely surrounded by bordering lakes, the VeluwemeerKetelmeer, and Gooimeer.

 For more than 2,000 years, the Dutch have been striving to hold back as well as reclaim land. The Frisians, the first settlers in the Netherlands, started building dikes to safeguard their land from the North Sea. In 1287, the dikes failed, causing a flood in the country and formation of the new bay Zuiderzee over the farmland. The Dutch worked consistently for a few centuries to slowly push the water out of Zuiderzee and built dikes and created polders, pieces of reclaimed land. After building the dikes, the water was pumped out to keep the land dry.

Flevoland is separated by a dike and is kept dry by operating diesel and electric pumps.
In 1969, the Island was finished, as part of the Zuiderzee Works. Flevoland consists of two polders Eastern Flevoland and Southern Flevoland. The eastern part was drained in 1955 and the southern part in 1968.
