From purely a visual perspective, it can been seen that Bahrain Bay has been designed for sustainability; but sustainability comes in many forms. The 21st century’s colossal need for IT infrastructure is but one and this includes the immense need for multi-communication platforms. As technology brings new social and business needs, things can get quite messy as more and more is added around us. For years to come, if not happily for the lifetime of the development, Bahrain Bay is well advanced with all necessary conduits and transmission paths capable of anything envisaged for the next few generations at least – and it is all invisible to the onlooker, as it pipes its way in underground channels to each and every tenant.
An immediate sense of space surrounds well positioned infrastructure which dominates one’s perception as viewed looking into the development. This will never change, yet Bahrain Bay will bustle and expand to its full capacity. Local authorities have fulfilled all necessary access well ahead of time and with what might be described as discerning redundancy. Of course, as years progress, changes will no doubt be made, not only with already planned completion, but other desired necessities as they appear. From this, it is clear that Bahrain Bay has almost all eventualities well covered without a hint of clutter.
Bahrain being a very power hungry nation with its scorching summers, uses billions of megawatts keeping the nation cool. The noise print from the surrounding city’s air conditioners alone is daunting enough, yet Bahrain Bay is as peaceful as a summer garden. Today, as more and more residents move in, each will experience instant comfort throughout the year as ‘District Cooling’ pumps chilled water to every structure or structures to be, within the bay. Again, it is invisible to the onlooker as it all lies deep in the foundations. Like the demand for electricity, District Cooling is generated and powered by Bahrain Bay’s own well positioned sub stations which have ample capacity for the foreseeable future.
With the buzz words being ‘environmentally friendly’ and ‘sustainability’ Bahrain Bay’s concept was developed at a time when serious considerations had to be made. Bahrain Bay’s environment depends on sustainability and the oxygen producing ample greenery is nourished by clean recycled water. Every conscious effort is made to recycle and this notion is instilled within the network.
Industry and jobs also beg for sustainability and Bahrain Bay’s contribution to both is top priority, adding great value to the community, not only supplying a futuristic first class venue for business today but creating on-going opportunity.
