Qiddiya Investment Company (QIC) has started the process of building offices on the site of the 334km2 gigaproject in Saudi Arabia by signing a contract with Dubox, a member of Amana Group, to build a 2,000m2 building.

With a capacity of 100 people, the building, which will be located 30 minutes from Riyadh, will act as temporary office space while Qiddiya is being constructed, allowing the project’s development team to have a base on site, as well as in the firm's headquarters.

The offices will feature modern amenities and will be designed in line with Qiddiya’s environmental and sustainability principles.

Commenting on the contract, QIC’s chief executive officer, Michael Reininger, said: “Having announced our masterplan this month, we are taking rapid next steps to begin construction of our on-site offices. We are delighted to be working with an esteemed regional company like Amana and look forward to seeing our site offices progress.”

Amana Group’s chairman, Chebel Bsaibes, added: “Eighty-five percent of the concrete building will be manufactured offsite at Dubox's factory.

"The building will be fully fitted-out and furnished, ready for occupancy within a period of 180 days.”
