Dubai Creek Harbour

  |   Blog


For Team SmartBox, being a part of the prestigious Dubai Creek Harbour (DCH) has been as humbling as it was exciting. An ambitious, future-facing project that merges Emaar standards of luxury with Dubai’s sustainability vision, DCH is a gorgeous waterfront development that sits abreast of the Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary.

A stellar model for global cities in every sense!

The deadlines were tight: we were to create a 5400 square foot, two storey lounge space with bathrooms out of 18 shipping containers (16 x 40ft + 2 x 20ft), and instal them on site –  all in the space of a fortnight, no less!

At SmartBox, we so enjoy a challenge! And what’s more? DCH is also an endeavour that ties in very closely with our own ethos. Through creating world class living, work and leisure spaces out of upcycled shipping containers, we constantly strive to provide our clients with the most durable and eco-friendly construction options available.

Needless to say that afterwards, we stopped for a second to admire the view. And our own handiwork.



Good looks aside, our products also regularly meet all local and international standards for construction safety. And as cargotecture is inherently energy efficient, they vastly exceed industry norms during production as well as usage.
