Tenants of IT Plaza, commercial building in Dubai Silicon Oasis are suffering from an on-and-off air-conditioning system for the past month that they said has affected their businesses and the performance of their employees.
Gulf News reports that tenants of IT Plaza, a 15-storey commercial building in Silicon Oasis, said the chillers of the building have been malfunctioning since the start of Ramadan, increasing the discomfort and heat within its rented office spaces.
Ninety per cent of the time there is no AC. People have started to work in shifts and using pedestal and wall fans to circulate air within the office.
Gulf News visited the building and noted the lack of cool air in many shops although there was some ventilation in the common areas. A restaurant has added two cooling fans for their customers’ comfort.
Apart from the chiller problems, tenants said there are major cleaning issues in the toilets and the prayer rooms in the building.
The building manager of IT Plaza, said that they are aware of the problem and are working hard to resolve the issues.
