Sustainability Meets Reliability: GF Corys is Leading the Way in Sustainable Piping Solutions for the Construction Industry 


Introducing Sharjah Sustainable City 


Developed in partnership with the Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq) and Diamond Developers, Sharjah Sustainable City is the first sustainable master-planned community in the Emirate of Sharjah. The city is a world-class mixed-use development that meets the highest social, environmental, and economic sustainability standards and improves the quality of life for its residents without compromising the needs of future generations. It also presents material opportunities for research and applied learning across all sustainability disciplines. Powered with renewable energy, the city aspires to achieve Net Zero Energy and is cultivating an exceptional and sustainable society that embraces the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and inspires a low-carbon future.


The Challenge of Securing a Sustainable Future


To achieve its goals, Sharjah Sustainable City ensures that most of its construction and operation are environmentally friendly, reliable, and sustainable. The challenge for the contractors involved in the project is to provide products and solutions that align with the city’s sustainability goals. One of the city’s contractors includes Royal Ritz Electromechanical, responsible for providing reliable piping solutions and supporting the project’s sustainability goals. One of the major challenges Royal Ritz faces is securing piping systems that are both reliable and environmentally friendly.
