Covering a site of some 2.5 million m² with a built hospital area of around 491,000 m² (the equivalent of 49 football pitches), the new complex will offer no fewer than 1,248 hospital beds.
This vast scheme represents an effort by the Kingdom of Saudia Arabia (KSA)’s Ministry of Interior to tackle rising demand from Riyadh’s large and growing military community for health services.
We have been commissioned to provide fire and life safety, security risk management and facades services as well as acoustics and waste for the complex, which will also feature a wealth of other, mixed-use developments.
Moreover, as the construction is in its advanced stages, a near identical project will be rolled out in Jeddah by the same design and build team also including our structural engineering team. This will, in effect, create two ‘health cities’ within the KSA.
