Commenting on the opening of the new facility, Mohammed Maktari, Managing Director, Al-Futtaim Lexus, said, “This is a proud moment for Lexus in the UAE. As a brand that has been at the spearhead of sustainability for years globally, we are delighted to announce the launch of an environmentally-conscious facility at DIP. The flagship facility is in line with the vision of the UAE Government to conserve our resources and ensure a better future for generations to come. This facility is unlike any other and it gives me immense pride that Lexus is at the forefront of sustainability initiatives within the UAE.”
True to the brand's heritage, the design of the new DIP 3S facility gets its inspiration from traditional Japanese concepts including Kumiko screens which is a wooden lattice, inspired by customary Japanese concepts. It is a perfect blend of Japanese “Takumi” craft concepts and modern architectural installations to represent the Lexus spindle grille motif.
The design of the back wall in the showroom reception is inspired by traditional Japanese craftsmanship. The ‘Triaxial Orimono’ weaves fiber in three directions to offer durability and elegance while expressing the spindle grille motif into 3-dimensional textured partitions.
The new Al-Futtaim Lexus 3S facility is built around several sustainable initiatives that are unprecedented. They include:
The facility has been fitted with solar panels which helps reduce power by 768,398 kWh each year.
RECYCLED CARPET SYSTEM
The carpet used for the flooring across facility is made from the recycled material that has been certified by Dubai Municipality.
WATER RECYCLING SYSTEM
The car wash bays are equipped with wastewater treatment and recycling system that helps reduce water consumption and wastage.
NATURAL DAYLIGHT – SUN TUBES
The rooftop of the workshop is fitted with sun tubes that provide adequate natural lighting, equivalent to LED lights and helps reduce consumption of electricity during the day.
The facility features LED lighting with motion sensors throughout the premises to ensure responsible usage and consumption of electricity.
The paint and coatings used across the facility are certified by Dubai Central Lab and do not exceed the permissible limits of Volatile Organic Compound (VOC), ensuring a safe work environment.
The entrance and exit lobbies at the facility are enhanced by a unique application that helps prevent the loss of conditioned air.
CONDENSATE RECOVERY SYSTEM
The condensate water from all Air Handling Units at the facility is recovered and further used for landscape irrigation throughout the premises.
WATER DISPENSING SYSTEM
The facility features an enhanced water dispensing system that provides advanced filtered and purified drinking water and helps reduce the carbon footprint.
ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING STATION AND PARKING
