QIC awards key Riyadh entertainment project contract

RIYADH, February 11, 2020

Qiddiya Investment Company (QIC), the entity leading the development of Riyadh's mega entertainment project, has awarded a contract to Saudi Pan Kingdom Company (Sapac) to build perimeter fencing as part of Phase One of the project.

The contract work includes 440,000 sq m of site clearing as part of the site preparation process, besides 20 km of security fencing and 23 km of cable barriers, as well as 1 million cu m of earthworks to be filled.

As per the deal, Sapac, an established Saudi construction company, will place security fencing around the entire premises of Qiddiya, the kingdom’s capital of entertainment, sports and the arts.

This first layer of security will enable a slew of construction projects, set to be launched this year, to begin bringing in heavy construction machinery and restrict unauthorised access to the site, it added.

On the new contract, Salman AlHubeis, executive director (Infrastructure & Area Development) said: "With this signing, Phase One of developing Qiddiya’s security protocol has commenced. We are proud to work with an experienced Saudi company like Sapac as we set out to create the kingdom’s capital of entertainment, sports and arts."

Sapac has been involved in engineering, procurement and construction of medium- to mega-size projects in both the public and private sectors in the Kingdom for over two decades.

"For over 25 years, Sapac has worked with leading firms in the country," stated its CEO Saleh bin Salim AlHarbi.

"We are now thrilled to join Qiddiya, a project which is set to change the landscape of entertainment in the kingdom. To facilitate construction at the site, securing the premises is going to be the first step," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
