Etihad Airways, the national flag carrier airline of the U.A.E. has its head office in Khalifa City near Abu Dhabi International Airport. Etihad spent £32.3million to build its new head office and training centre, which was completed in 2007.

Project details

The two buildings house 17,400 sq m of loose lay RG3 bare panels and screw-down DRF Simploc panels. The flooring systems are used in office areas, providing flexible access to under floor services. They are also used in the company’s network operations centre (NOC) to allow easy access to hundreds of miles of cabling.

RG3 conforms to BSEN Standard 12825 and like all our flooring systems is FSC® certified. DRF Simploc is independently tested in accordance with the PSA MOB PF2 PS/SPU Specification to Medium Grade.
