Beijing Construction Engineering Group has secured two contracts worth SR299m ($79m) to develop buildings in the industrial city on the western coast of the country. Work on the projects involves construction of a new headquarters building for the commission and infrastructure facilities around the site.

The new building will be constructed on a 56,000 square metre area, with its two sides facing the Red Sea overlooking the residential area in the Al-Fahd District, located in downtown Yanbu Al-Sinaia. It also involves two interlinked buildings, parking lots, service areas and basic needs around the building.

The company will also carry out concrete works for support utilities, bridges, side passageways, street lighting, water and sanitary drainage networks, distribution and storing of electrical power and tree plantation.

Assad Bulgo Company won the third and fourth contracts worth SR227m ($75m) to construct the basic facilities and a number of housing units in the Al-Mushaireef 2 District in Yanbu Al-Sinaia.
