Fitting in naturally

Fitting in naturally

By Cape Reed International
Taking form on a disused landfill, the Dubai Safari Park’s main aim is to be green and environmentally sustainable.

Dubai Safari Park is our largest commercial project up to date, and this site is not only host to the largest roof area Cape Reed International has ever created, it is also home to the roof that required the most bundles of thatch in their history – a staggering seven 40ft containers of Cape thatching reed!

The brief was to provide the structures with a natural roof covering to fit in with the project concept of a Safari Park. Cape reed (Thamnochortus Insignis) roofs were designed according to local authority specifications which is like the US or British building codes. The roofs must be waterproofed and be able to withstand winds of 45m/s in line with the local code.
