Smart Strategy

Smart Strategy

Uniciti has been designed in line with sustainable development principles, in the spatial, ecological, economic and social senses of the term.

We shaped a comprehensive and streamlined approach to construction through a ‘Smart Thinking’ strategy that encompasses a wide set of objectives and is based on three core values.

Smart Strategy
It has been founded on three pillars:
  • Inspired by site
  • Led by excellence
  • Made for people
  • One of the key pillars of the Uniciti concept is a “GREEN”, sustainable city. All buildings have been designed with respect for the existing features of the natural environment and topography. Our master planners have laid out a smart strategy to use the natural valleys and water bodies as well as some of the remarkable landscape elements, such as the trees around the old tobacco barns and the remains of an aqueduct as building blocks of Uniciti’s public realm strategy.

    This strategy has been developed in a cohesive manner, integrating new parks into the existing green network and using the water bodies to ensure continuity of the ecological corridors, and creating a well-connected grid of parks, squares, pedestrian and cycle paths.

    The principles of sustainable construction and design (such as building orientation which favours natural ventilation and optimal shading or using locally sourced materials) will be applied at all stages of the project.

  • The design codes put in place will ensure the architectural coherence and high environmental performance of the built environment.

    All the latest technologies in the fields of architecture, construction, land management and ecology, among others, will be put to work in Uniciti.

    RAINWATER MANAGEMENT

    The sustainable rainwater management strategy put in place is based on natural solutions to minimise the environmental impact, whereby the traditionally employed concrete channels will be replaced by open swales along all the road corridors. Their primary function is to collect rainwater and direct it towards the existing rivers, but the abundance of plants will also act as ecological corridors and hubs of biodiversity.

    SMART TECHNOLOGY

    Our team of Engineers, Technologists and Consultants has come up with very exciting innovations that we will gradually put in place.

    We will ensure that all the traditional networks such as Energy, Water, and Telecoms are based on the latest available technology to make sure that they can communicate with Uniciti and its users but also that they fully integrate into our overall Master Plan. Ensuring our Energy network is Ethernet-based and that our water network is connected to relevant IOT devices will definitely allow us to build applications and platforms that put the user at the heart of Uniciti.

    We endeavour to set up an Enterprise Command and Control Centre featuring latest open-source technologies such as Blockchain, AI and a few others. Data collection will be a key aspect for analysis and actionable intelligence that will support our approach to a Live, Work, Enjoy and Learn lifestyle.

  • Uniciti puts a strong emphasis on community living and on becoming a connected, attractive and desirable place to live, work, learn and enjoy.

    The design rationale behind the city’s layout is to provide every inhabitant with an easy access to essential amenities, such as local grocery stores or a pharmacy, and to quality open spaces within a walkable distance of 400 metres.

    Defined by tree-lined boulevards and permeated by green corridors, each of the city’s neighbourhoods will hence be a self-sufficient, human scale development with a mix of uses appropriate to its scale and location.
