cost of works

USD 320 Millions

scope of works

25 buildings with standard features


The project consists in 25 buildings with standard features to be constructed along the new railway line that connects Jeddah to Riyadh on 5 train maintenance sites and 1 public service site in the district of Jeddah and on an additional 9 sites along the railway line for a total of over 60 buildings. In addition to the technical buildings, which have purely functional features, there are buildings for maintenance of trains with covered surfaces of over 8,000 m² and public service buildings such as Residences-Hotel (4,000 m²) and Mosques (800 m²).

Given the prohibitive weather conditions of the places of great importance, technologies were applied in terms of energy efficiency. For the most representative buildings such as Hotels and Mosques, particular attention was paid to the formal aspects with reference to elements of local architecture with a modern touch.
