Some of the Projects completed and successfully handed over by me
The Oracle Building (Knowledge Village)
Successfully handed over with 240 Intelligent Fan Coil Units specifically designed for each and every area of floors from 2 – 6. This was done under a very strict guideline from the clients and from Cundalls the Consultants. For the open spaced areas the fan coils have been Master/Slaved.  The Consultants were impressed by the way how the fan coil units are self-commissioning and the fact that the majority of the settings can be easily changed to any specifications.  A redesign was made after the installation and rewriting and reprogramming was implemented by me.
SAP – Butterfly Building (Media City)
Completed 4 floors with our fan coil units inside along with commissioning them to Cundalls the Consultants specifications and within the guidelines of handing over the project. This included setting the correct litres per second for each room and correctly setting the thermostats to the required set points and interfaced to the CO2 and lighting controls.
International Modern Hospital
Site survey for a fully running hospital; I was required to do an inspection for the health and safety of the site after a fire had broken out in the hospital. This required me to check every floor, room and roof for any concern for safety. This was required by the civil defence and in accordance with the safety guidelines with in the building. Some of the works included measuring, exit status, storage space and the span of life left for chillers and fire pumps, access points for refuelling and deliveries.
Hyatt Hotel Creek Heights
Successfully install, commission and handover of 1900+ Wireless Water, Electric and BTU Meters for Billing purposes within the residential apartments and other retail outlets. All this was carried out whilst the building was occupied. Coordinating with up to 120 technicians and labourers to ensure the project was carried out within the agreed timeframe without causing any disturbance to the occupants and guests; liaising and arranging access with the Hotel and Apartment management. Carry out the commissioning using MBus software, in line with the Meter manufacturer guidelines, introduce and check the third party billing software and successfully hand over the project. This is the largest wireless project of its kind in the region using all three types of meters.
Kizad Project

GEMS School in Abu Dhabi – UIC Indian School – Baniyas
