Estidama is a holistic framework created by the UPC Abu Dhabi to direct the course of sustainable development within the Emirate. The framework seeks to assure that sustainability is continually addressed through four key pillars: environmental, economic, social and cultural.

Since the inception of Estidama in 2010, Stride Consulting Engineers have worked on numerous Estidama projects in Abu Dhabi including Villas, Buildings and Communities.

Despite the relative infancy of the Estidama system, Stride Consulting Engineers have already worked on hundreds of Estidama buildings that include both public and private sector projects.

This experience provides valuable lessons learned for our future projects; not only in ensuring that projects meet the requirements of Estidama but also contribute to high levels of sustainability within the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.

Our multidisciplinary team of Estidama Pearl Qualified Architects, Engineers, Ecologists, Energy Modellers, Legionella Specialists and Waste Management Specialists provide Clients with assurance that STRIDE CONSULTING ENGINEERS  can manage all aspects of Estidama projects.

STRIDE CONSULTING ENGINEERS  have also been involved in managing Estidama during the construction of some of the first buildings to be built under the Estidama system.

Our team were therefore involved in the piloting of the UPC’s Estidama Construction Auditing Protocol.

We always work closely with project teams to optimize designs to achieve high levels of sustainability in the most appropriate and value adding manner for the project.

We also provide all necessary specialist studies and strategies that may be required in house. This provides Clients with a single point of contact to manage all aspects of Estidama certification.
