KPMG is moving more than 950 staff members from its offices in Dubai and Sharjah to a “sustainable” workspace at One Central in Dubai’s Central Business District.
The new office is expected to save the firm 60 percent in power usage and 35 percent in water consumption through energy efficient fittings and furnishings. The layout features various kinds of workspaces, including fixed working areas for focused work, quiet spaces to take calls, touchdown areas for socializing, open and closed meeting areas, and collaborative working areas, KPMG said.
The firm relocated during the pandemic, without scaling back on plans. KPMG’s significant investment in the heart of Dubai and a similar upgrade in Abu Dhabi testify to its confidence in the UAE economy, it said.
