Yas Mall is a luxury shopping and entertainment complex located just 20 minutes from Abu Dhabi. The 378,000 cubic metre concrete structure was constructed on the building site which spanned 1.4 million square metres. BESIX used environmentally friendly materials and followed strict plans for waste management and indoor air quality throughout construction. Thanks to this commitment to sustainability, Yas Mall was the first shopping centre to earn two pearls on the Estidama rating system, aimed at making Abu Dhabi a model for sustainable urbanisation. It was also the first building in the Emirates to meet these strict requirements.
