VIDEO: TRSDC working on 10,000 cabins for construction workers
The cabins are being built using pre-fabricated and modular methods to reduce delivery time and enhance quality
The Red Sea Development Company (TRSDC) – which is fully owned by Saudi Arabia’s sovereign Public Investment Fund (PIF) – has revealed ongoing work on the installation of 10,000 cabins for construction workers at The Red Sea Project.
The cabins are being built using pre-fabricated and modular construction in order to reduce delivery time, enhance quality, limit the number of workers on site, and minimise the environmental impact of construction.
Construction workers who are employed by TRSDC, as well as those employed by its contractors, will be provided accommodation at the cabins.
Construction Week reported in July 2019 that the Emirati joint venture of ARCCO and Speedhouse had been picked alongside Saudi Arabia's Almajal Alarabi Group to build the cabins for workers at The Red Sea Project.
Once completed, TRSDC will retain operational control of the cabins and ensure the facility meets the “highest living standards”.
All rooms will have a shared bathroom, with catering teams, and dedicated medical facilities – including an emergency care center, a laboratory, and a dispensing pharmacy.
Medical services will be provided through a centralised operator and delivered by a full complement of doctors and nurses operating in line with Saudi and international standards.
The Red Sea gigaproject is a luxury tourism destination project, which is being developed on an area spanning 28,000 km2, and includes more than 90 islands, mountain, canyons, dormant volcanoes, as well as cultural and heritage sites, and will feature hotels and residential properties, and leisure, commercial, and entertainment destinations.
Phase 1 of the gigaproject, which includes the completion of necessary infrastructure for the destination, is currently being developed.
