The 15,000m2 facility, which conforms to green building regulations, also features offices for administrative staff, doctors and technicians, as well as refrigerated storages for meat and separate waiting halls for men and women.
In addition, the facility includes utilities and other public services such as roads, parking and external service buildings as well as a transformer room, water tank and pumping room.
Marwan Al Mohammed, director of General Projects Department at the Municipality, said the facility would be used for small and large animals, including camels.
“The building is a vital facility for the region and its environs to provide the best services in slaughtering livestock and storing meat according to the best international standards,” said Al Mohammed.
The construction follows the Government of Dubai’s vision to preserve the resources of the state, build a green economy and establish an environmentally sustainable city.
The Dubai Municipality’s decision to build the facility was to implement the highest standards of quality and discrimination, in order to preserve the environment and society, it said.
