Saudi Arabia’s Red Sea Global (RSG) has awarded a contract to local contractor Built Industrial Company to build a school complex at the Turtle Bay Village in Amaala.

The contract is valued at SR131m ($35m). It covers constructing a group of school buildings, including the main office, kindergarten, primary school, nursery, arts, sports and security buildings, and associated infrastructure works.

The contract duration is 547 days from the start date of construction.

In February, RSG awarded Egyptian contractor SIAC Construction a contract to build a school complex at its Amaala development.

The scope of the contract covers the construction of a school with an administration building, kindergarten and middle school buildings and a sports building, as well as water, sewage and electrical networks.

Amaala progress

Amaala is a coastal development that covers an area of about 2,500 square kilometres and will be developed in phases. Phase one, focused on the Triple Bay masterplan, is expected to be completed in 2027. It will consist of eight resorts offering more than 1,200 hotel keys.

The overall development will include 27 hotels with a total of 37,000 keys.

RSG has adopted a construction management approach to delivering its projects. Schemes are divided into individual trade works packages procured by the developer rather than awarded to a series of main contractors. There are typically about 20 works packages for each project.
