This publication does not relieve the designer of responsibility for accurately determining design arrangements and/or complying with the local authority requirements and/or relevant international codes or regulatory requirements. It should be used for initial design guidance, and provides minimum design requirements for specific design issues.

This guide has been produced by the CIBSE UAE Technical Committee to promote best engineering practices in Dubai, without legal or financial liability of CIBSE UAE or the authors, in order to assist engineers coming from elsewhere in the world to work in Dubai, UAE. It should be read alongside existing CIBSE guidance relevant to the region, including Buildings for Extreme Environments: Arid.
