04 February 2009

The bid deadline for the fourth package of the Princess Noura bint Abdulrahman University for Women is set to be extended by one month to the end of March.

Bids were due to be submitted on 28 February, but the client, the Finance Ministry has issued more details for the package, prompting requests from contractors for the deadline extension.

The SR1bn ($267m) fourth package covers the construction of a 10 kilometre-long monorail network to link facilities at the university.

MEED reported on 30 January that three packages totaling SR30bn at the university have been awarded by the Finance Ministry.

Saudi Oger was awarded the first package, worth SR12.5bn, Saudi Binladin Group won the second contract, worth SR10bn, and El-Seif Engineering & Contracting won the third, worth SR8bn (MEED 30:01:09).
