KEO International Consultants has been awarded a contract by Saudi Oger to design the 3.5 km elevated rail viaducts, switch bridges, long span bridges and 131 piers supporting the monorail train system, Station 1 and the train maintenance depot for the new Riyadh monorail.

“KEO deliverables include the detailed design of over 30 bridges, as well as complete architectural and engineering design for the train maintenance depot and Station 1.

"KEO’s approach will carefully consider critical factors such as durability and maintenance, constructability, aesthetics, materials, economy of structural solution, and whole life-cycle costs,” PR and corporate branding director Brad Batcheller said in a statement.

KEO will team up with Bombardier, Freyssinet and Scott Wilson to deliver the project for Saudi Oger, which was awarded the contract by the Rayadah Investment Company, the investment vehicle of the Public Pension Agency of the government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Design completion for the project is expected in 2011, with construction expected to be substantially finished in 2012.
