AMAALA, the ultra-luxury destination located along Saudi Arabia’s north-western coast, has signed a major contract for the infrastructure development of the first phase of its Employee Village in Triple Bay.
In a statement, AMAALA said that the contract was awarded to Saudi-based Haif Trading and Contracting Company, in recognition of their extensive understanding of the local landscape and capabilities in creating short and long-term residential communities, coupled with their high environmental standards.
“AMAALA will set new benchmarks in luxury community living, and this ambition starts with state-of-the-art residential facilities for the talented people who will eventually operate the destination,” said John Pagano, chief executive officer of AMAALA.
“We are proud to partner with Haif Trading and Contracting Company, who share our vision to shape a new standard of excellence in accommodation, that addresses both the diverse needs of our workforce and ensures that each member of this community lives and breathes our sustainability ethos.”
The AMAALA Employee Village is located on the Red Sea coast, approximately 13 km north of the wider Triple Bay masterplan and will accommodate nearly 20,000 employees, the statement said.
It is anchored around an expansive coastal lagoon, reflecting the destination’s wider masterplans. The village features a range of residential homes, coupled with recreational facilities and amenities, creating a central hub for employees to live, work and relax. The village will be connective, encouraging walkability and cycling, and is designed to enable a strong sense of community in a resort setting.
“We are thrilled to partner with AMAALA to build modern new infrastructure for their Employee Village. Our designs lay a solid foundation for best-in-class employee living facilities and deliver optimal outcomes for inspiring lifestyle experiences. We are closely aligned with AMAALA’s commitment to champion employee welfare and will work collaboratively to provide a liveable and sustainable community for all,” said Salman Bin Haif Al-Qahtani, Deputy CEO of Haif Trading and Contracting Company.
Haif Trading and Contracting Company will construct a network of paths, walkways, street lighting and public realm landscaping, as well as bulk earthworks and Wadi diversion works. The contract also covers the construction of utility hubs, a potable water network, a firefighting water network, an irrigation network, a sewerage network, and stormwater drainage.
The works have commenced with site mobilisation activities, followed by bulk earthworks in February and deep levels services in April.
