Work on project expected to begin immediately, with December 2014 end planned
Drake and Scull Construction have been awarded $122.5mn civil contract in the Western province in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, it has been announced.
Work on the project is expected to start immediately, with construction estimated to be completed by December 2014, said Saleh Muradweij, executive director of Drake and Scull Construction.
“DSC has gone through major milestones in market diversifications,” he said. “Within a span of a couple of years, DSC has become a vital part of Drake and Scull International, with high profile projects to its credit already. We are very delighted with this achievement and we expect to announce more details on the scope of the project in Q2,” he added.
Since its inception in 2010, DSC has achieved strong and consistent performance and has transformed from being a UAE based contractor to substantially increasing its footprint in both KSA and Qatar, within the span of one year.
Saudi Arabia is now DSC’s biggest market by value, Muradweij said.
