Construction Management

   Nov 2013
— Apr 2016

9/14-4/16  Project: Old Riyadh KKIA airport had 4 Terminals. The expansion project integrates and extends Terminals 3 and 4 as an infill development to accommodate 17.5 million passengers per year. The project also introduces a central processor building and three new piers with 24 gates, new APRONS, new Airplanes Fuel Unit (AFU), LC2 and LC3 buildings and new Headquarters Buildings. Sustainable strategies include replacing the existing terminals’ external cladding with a high-performance facade system and upgrading infrastructure with two new energy centres. An integrated BIM strategy allows the consultancy team to rationalize and coordinate the process throughout construction. The facilities are being refurbished in two phases to allow the existing airport operations to function at capacity during construction.
11/13-09/14  Project: JECPI (Jizan Economic City Project Initiative)
This huge program was developed in a 144 km2 area. Included areas for : 380kV Transmission Lines, Commercial area [waterfront], Desalination facilities, Education, Golf course, High tech park, Logistics hub, Photovoltaic plants, a very big Port, Private and public schools, Railway line, Recreational and Residential. Also included industries like : Agricultural, Automotive, Chemical, Construction Support, Copper Processing, Energy and Power Plants, Food packing, Metal Fabrication, Oil Refinery + Expansion provision, Pharmaceutical, Steel Cluster and Zinc Processing. All above were served by a huge (about 180km long) roadway network and a complex infrastructures networks for water, sewage, power etc.
o Project 1: JEC Port Dredging and Reclamation Project in Jizan. Contractor China Harbour, Sub-contractor: CHEC, Survey high accuracy CP network Establishment, Hydrographic Surveys for 6 dredging machines with capacity up to 4300 m3 dredging and dumping through pressure discharge by floating pipes /h. Totally 40 million m3 dredging within an area of 9 km2. Port's terminal and facilities for oil and gas pipes coming from the refinery.
o Project 2: 80 million m3 earthwork movements on an area of 16 km2 to prepare the basis of the refinery infrastructures. All surface area compacted with the dynamic compaction method, to afford the tensions of very heavy machinery.
o Project 3: 180km Central Roads (18 m wide typical cross-section) network of urban and industrial areas of the city
