Work is currently underway on Al Fursan, which will be developed over an area of 35m sqm
Hill International has secured a major contract from Saudi Arabia’s National Housing Company (NHC) to provide project management consultation (PMC) services for its Dahiyat Al Fursan project, located on the east side of Riyadh Airport.
Work is currently underway on Al Fursan, which will be developed over an area of 35m sqm. Once complete, it will boast 50,000 units of suburban homes, apartments, townhouses, educational facilities, commercial buildings, and related infrastructure, along with dedicated green spaces.
Dahiyat Al-Fursan is said to be among the largest of the residential developments currently being developed by NHC and is specifically targeted to meet the needs of today’s Saudi families.
As project manager for the development, Hill will provide PMC services to the NHC, managing all of Al-Fursan’s first and second sub-developments and infrastructure packages.
In early July 2021, Hill was awarded the PM contract for infrastructure at Madinah Central Area development and, in early August 2022, the firm was appointed to provide PMC services for two Aldar projects.
This includes programme management, cost estimating, schedule management, risk management, contract management, change management, and all related PMC services to help ensure the NHC’s vision for Al-Fursan is realised as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible, Hill stated.
On the contract win, Hill Senior Vice President Dr Adel Jemah said. “Working with NHC to realise Al Fursan is both an opportunity and an honour for our KSA team. The NHC’s goals are clear: to help Saudi families own their own homes in desirable, welcoming locations with the services and infrastructure they expect.”
Hill has a long history of helping Saudi clients achieve ambitious programmes and projects, and this would be a proud addition to its portfolio, he concluded.
In mid December 2022, SJIF awards Hill a $400mn contract for a university hospital project in Jordan.
