2020 CW Power 100: TRSDC’s John Pagano ranked three
The Saudi Arabian gigaproject has made significant construction progress this year
Making his debut in Construction Week’s Power 100 list, John Pagano has been instrumental in the growth of the Saudi Arabia gigaproject as it begins to take shape.
Some of the highlights from the firm over the past 12 months has been the progress of its 1.5km2 Coastal Village, with HUTA Hegerfield and Saudconsulting Services (Saudconsult) being awarded a contract to implement ground-work improvements.
The Red Sea Project said this part of the 28,000km2 development is expected to be completed in five months.
Other notable developments within the gigaproject includes completing construction works on its 100ha landscape nursery, which is now operational, while its Sakan Programme, which was signed in November 2019, offers employment opportunities for Saudi nationals.
The developer also awarded contracts to Dubox and Saudi Amana to design and build a management hotel, as well as Foster + Partners being assigned to design the Red Sea Project’s airport.
When speaking to Construction Week in February 2020, The Red Sea Development Company said that it predicts that it will triple its contract awards from $600m in 2019 to $1.8bn for 2020.
