General International Case Study

A little contribution goes a long way for a better future

Case Study 1

General International Company realizes in today’s challenging economic climate, businesses more and more are evaluating ways to optimize their operations via implementing sustainability solutions.  The outcome is twofold: 

  • Contribute to a brighter future
  • Long term savings

Government & private companies can save millions of dirhams a day just by wasting less energy and water through introducing smart devices and implementing measures.  GIGs environmental & sustainability progressive outlook, supported our FM team to provide feasibility studies to our clients in order to help them achieve these goals.

 Efficient use of resources has a major influence on a building’s sustainability.  Demand for electricity and water continues to grow at a fast pace due to a rise in population, an expanding economy and climatic considerations. A sharp increase in annual power demand throughout the country is expected over the period 2012-21, with an anticipated average annual increase in consumption of 5.6 percent.

We have implemented energy saving initiative at Mirfa, Western Region for our client Musanada at their facilities, resulting in reduced expenses and an increase in the bottom line and more importantly raising social awareness on environmental care and a reduction of their carbon footprint.


With our team’s efforts, we managed to lower the percentage of increase in energy utilization in government facilities.  GIG has replaced all the high Watt Mercury type lights with LED lights.  The results were remarkable, a whopping 60% of Energy consumption was saved, as depicted in the chart below:

Before, After, Summary

  • Lights were kept on at all times (30 working days)

  • Lights were switched off post working hours (22 working days)



Water is the source of life and is with high demand, unfortunately it is depleting fast.  Our team suggested to our client MUSANDA to install smart devices which can reduce water consumption.  Water levels in the toilets were adjusted to restrict the flow on the taps while not affecting the overall spray effect.  The result was savings in excess of 40% in water consumption to our clients, as depicted in the chart below:
