Interior Design Project in the UAE : Need approval to Process?

What permissions and approvals do I need before proceeding with an interior design project in the UAE?

F irst and foremost, you should undertake a feasibility study for conducting your business in the
area of your choice in the UAE. Once you are happy with the findings and decide to set up the
company in the particular zone, you can finalise the workspace.

Three things to do before proceeding with the interior design project for your workspace or business in the UAE.

West leaves plenty of room for interesting compositional possibilities: it enters a harmonious dialogue in terms of both colour and shape with the Amber coffee tables, is complemented by the Side coffee tables, with their frame in saddle hide that evokes that of the backrest and enhanced by the Clive consoles, which play around with surfaces, even setting one over another. The combination of the two looks of West, one with backrest in saddle hide and the other more conventional version with padded backrest and armrest.

1. No Objection Certificate

The first step in the chain of approvals is to obtain a NOC from the
landlord or lessor, confirming they have no objection to the functioning of the proposed business
activity. The lessor could be owners of the commercial space or mall management in a store or
office inside the mall.

2. Vendor pre-qualification

The next step is to invite qualified agencies capable of building your dream space into reality. Prequalify the prospective vendor by checking their credentials and visiting their facility to understand their capabilities. It is also essential to verify whether a prospective vendor has registered with the authorities, who issue permits for the interior work. Without appropriate expertise in preparing the submittals, obtaining the necessary approvals from the governing bodies is difficult, leading to unnecessary delay.

3. Municipality Approvals

Depending on the location, you will need to approach the municipal
corporation of the particular emirate. For example, projects planned in Dubai have to be
approved by the Dubai Municipality. 

Documents required for Municipality Approval in Dubai:
· Trade license copy of the Tenant.
· Copy of Ejari/Tenancy contract
· NOC from Building owner/real estate/management
· Affection/site plan
· Existing and proposed drawings
· Building management approval
