The Royal Commission in Jubail has invited contractors to submit bids for a site-preparation contract at its Ras al-Khair industrial city.

Contractors have until 4 April to submit bids for the infrastructure package, which will involve site preparation of an area covering an area of about 6.2 million square metres. The work will include clearing of shrubs and excavating and transporting earth to achieved finished grade levels.

The Commission is becoming an increasingly important client in the kingdom’s construction and infrastructure sector. It has recently invited contractors to submit bids for the contract to build a number of support facilities at its Jubail Industrial City development.

The project will involve the construction of an auditorium and training centre, a mosque, guard house and two irrigation tanks. The work will also include site preparation works and the provision of car parking and utilities.

The Commission is also preparing to tender several road projects over the next five years. The client is planning to build a total of 122 kilometres of new roads serving its Jubail and Ras al-Khair industrial cities. The commission is currently designing 27km of new road schemes for its Jubail Industrial City and 95km of new road projects for its Ras al-Khair development.
