Ultramodern, high-tech & state-of-the-art amenities at Dubai Knowledge Village


Heriot-Watt’s brand-new campus at Dubai Knowledge Village is ultramodern, high-tech and boasts state-of-the-art amenities to say the least.

In 2019, the university put into motion, plans it had to move the campus to a bigger and more digital-enhanced facility to offer students a better quality of education with world-class amenities. Acoulite worked on supplying both the architectural and decorative lighting across the whole campus as well as the acoustics.

The Solution

“When COVID crept in, all the restrictions started coming in, we had to limit the labour onsite and, in the elevators, to maintain social distancing. It became a bit of a challenge as we did not have all the elevators available and, we also had to reduce the number of labour that could use the elevator at a time. The huge volume of men we were trying to move on the project for the demolition works just got hindered by COVID ” – Khansaheb

Despite the challenges the project was not just on target towards delivery and completed on time to an exceptionally high quality, but it has also achieved a million-man hours accident free.
