The King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, located in Thowal, 91km from Jeddah City Center, is considered one of the biggest Universities in the Middle East and architecturally unique.

 There was an urgent demand for a residential complex and therefore the university program required the development of 2,200 villas, with all the supporting utilities, mosques etc. Each Villa comprised of three levels of 250 sqm foot print, covering 350 cum of cast in situ concrete and 70 pieces of pre-cast panels for the villa’s skin / envelope. Building Roots was awarded the 600 villas (plus activities such as stadium, mosque, etc.) as turn key, which comprised of 210,000 cum of concrete and the pre-cast clad for the 2,200 villas encompassing 165,000 elements. This project was awarded by SBG Saudi Bin Laden Group. The Project had a very tight timeframe and Building Roots had it accomplished in 24 months.
