The company recently revealed its plans to establish a new office in Saigon within Vietnam later this year. The company undertook the Solforest Ecopark project in Hanoi, Vietnam, Al Assam stated, explaining Dewan's "innovative approach to eco-consciousness."
"The design includes more than a million trees, providing insulation in the cooler months and shade in the warmer months, reducing residents’ reliance on energy-draining heating and cooling systems. Additionally, in order to ensure the project's vertical gardens continuously thrive, Dewan incorporated watering systems specifically designed for each balcony depending on the type of plants and the orientation of the space."
On a concluding note, Al Assam said: "We’re excited to bring this level of innovative design to our work in Saudi Arabia."
