Diriyah Gate Development Authority (DGDA) has appointed Egis to provide project management consultancy services for a part of its retail and heritage masterplan. Egis said its services will cover all phases of the South and Garden Districts including early development, design, procurement and construction.
Under the patronage of His Royal Highness the Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, DGDA was established with a mandate to transform the historic district of Ad Diriyah into an iconic and world class destination within Riyadh, reflecting and celebrating the rich history of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Diriyah Gate will be a mixed-use project, with history and heritage assets at its core, enriched by entertainment, shopping, and residential elements, the statement from Egis noted.
The Diriyah Gardens and Diriyah South Districts developments form part of the wider Diriyah Gate masterplan and will entail hotels, museums, conference centres and more, it added.
“We are currently involved in many projects serving Saudi’s 2030 Vision and this iconic project is no different. Diriyah will serve as the Kingdom’s historic and cultural destination showcasing the country’s 300+ years of history, which will no doubt enrich the tourism industry as well as create a destination which all Saudis will pride themselves with. We look forward to watching these iconic projects come to life over the next few years and are extremely proud to play our part in this great vision,” stated Alaa Abusiam, CEO of Egis in the Middle East.
The firm said it was proud to help shape the Saudi Vision 2030, which includes developing and diversifying the public service sectors from infrastructure, to recreation to tourism.
