Asteco completes fire-rated cladding at Palm Jumeirah project

Asteco Property Management has announced that new UAE Civil Defence-approved fire-rated cladding panels have been installed across the seven-building mixed-use integrated community project – Oceana Palm Jumeirah in Dubai. The new cladding project was funded by the community’s Owners Association Reserve Fund and resulted in significant cost savings that reflected directly on annual service charges. 

Oceana Residences consists of seven towers – Adriatic, Pacific, Caribbean and Atlantic on the north side of the trunk of Palm Jumeirah, and Southern, Baltic and Aegean on the east side of the enclave. Approximately 90 per cent of the community is occupied and 100 per cent of the units have been sold.

The replacement project was first initiated after the Adriatic tower got damaged in a blaze five years back, and leading to a massive hike in community insurance fees which skyrocket by over 330 per cent, according to Asteco. By proactively replacing the cladding in the remaining six buildings, and part of the seventh building, insurance premium was reduced year on year until it reached the pre-2016-2017 rate, increasing the community’s value and enhancing safety, it adds.
