Global technology major Honeywell has signed an MoU with Egyptian developer Redcon for Offices and Commercial Centers (ROCC) for its pioneering project, Golden Gate, in New Cairo.
The deal provides a framework for collaboration between the companies, and paves the way for Honeywell to provide smart city, community and sustainability solutions along with consultation services for Golden Gate; ROCC’s first mixed-used development, which will become Egypt’s benchmark for smart communities.
Covering an area of 160,000 sq m in the heart of New Cairo, the Golden Gate community includes five districts comprising mixed-use buildings, standalone offices, retail and a luxury shopping zone. 
The community will take a sustainability-first approach in its design and construction including the materials used for buildings and walkways and by incorporating renewable energy and water and energy efficiency solutions, electric vehicles and other features aimed at reducing its overall carbon footprint, said the statement from Honeywell. 
Golden Gate is based on the values of sustainability and interconnectivity, designed to meet Egypt’s sustainability goals and wider climate change commitments.
"Honeywell is proud to collaborate with ROCC to help set the standard for smarter and more sustainable communities in the important market of Egypt, while supporting the government’s plans to enhance urban living," remarked Ahmed Saleh, the business director, Honeywell Building Technologies, North Africa. 
"We look forward to working with ROCC on making the Golden Gate project a reality and create an example for future communities in the region," he added.
