Proposed Emirates Aviation College at Academic City, Dubai will cater to 4000 students & 500 staff. The development consists of 6 buildings with various functions set in a vast expanse of land.
The main building near the primary access from the road has a grand double height entrance lobby, auditorium, administration & registration areas at the ground floor & executive offices at the first floor. The academic building will have classrooms distributed on ground and first floors. The workshops have been strategically placed along with loading/unloading areas allowing for easy movement of heavy equipment, engines, etc. The Staff area is located centrally in this block for easy access to classrooms & workshops. Library block is an independent building with adequate area dedicated for Reading hall. The student facilities like the cafeteria and Indoor sports for students form another block.
All the blocks are arranged to form interesting semi open and open spaces which allows for a lot of interaction between the occupants. The extensive landscaped areas and playgrounds combined with all the facilities create an ambience which is very conducive for learning. The simple, sleek lines with vast areas of glazing give an institutional feel to the whole setting.
