Saudi university plans drawn up

27 May 2008
Plans are being drawn up for the construction of a new university in the southern region of Asir in Saudi Arabia.

King Khaled University will cover 9 million square metres, of which 3 million square metres will comprise buildings.

Designs are being developed, with negotiations taking place among firms for the project management contract. The masterplan has already been completed.

The university is expected to have up to 80 buildings for male and female students, and will be able to accommodate up to 45,000 students when it is running at full capacity. It is expected to take up to six years to complete.

The Ministry of Higher Education is the client.
