Zamil Steel Pre-Engineered Buildings Co. Ltd. has been awarded a contract to supply pre-engineered steel buildings for one of the Sultanate of Oman’s largest poultry projects.
The scope of the contract includes the design, fabrication and supply of more than 130 pre-engineered steel buildings, spread over a built-up area of approximately 257,000 m2, to be used as poultry broiler houses for the A’Namaa Poultry Company project in the Dhahirah region in northern Oman.
“We are happy to be selected for this prestigious project in Oman. We are confident that the results will satisfy our client and match or exceed the standards that have built our reputation for quality, efficiency and innovation across the region,” said Mohammed Al Sahib, Vice President of Zamil Steel.
The A’Namaa Poultry Company project is expected to be one of the largest for the production of white meat in the Sultanate, with investments of RO 100 million. The project will contribute to the replacement of imports of white meat, producing 60,000 tons of fresh and frozen poultry meat annually.
Zamil Steel Construction Company (ZSCC) was awarded a contract valued at SAR 13.9 million (USD 3.7 million) by Saudi Constructioneers Ltd. The contract is for the Riyadh Rapid Bus Transit System (BRT) project in the central region of Saudi Arabia.
According to the agreement, ZSCC will supply and erect more than 1,600 metric tons of high-strength structural steel with intumescent and cementitious fireproof coatings, including checkered plates with protective coatings. The BRT project is part of the King Abdulaziz Public Transport System Project owned by the Arriyadh Development Authority in Saudi Arabia.
This project is a fast-track undertaking comprising many components. It will require an extraordinary level of attention to detail due to complex safety and security requirements that must be satisfactorily completed within a challenging time frame.
In both function and design, this system is envisioned to complement the Riyadh Metro. It will provide unique and identifiable stations for the BRT, while completing the family of transportation facilities for the city of Riyadh. Utilizing developments such as exclusive lanes, off-board fare payment and platform-level boarding, the well-planned and precisely delivered BRT system with clean buses will provide metro-quality service at a fraction of the cost. These cost savings and efficiency gains are expected to result in an enormous shift from private car use to public transportation systems.
Zamil Steel Construction Company was recently awarded a contract valued at SAR 26.8 million (USD 7.1 million) by Al Ghurair Construction LLC for the Riyadh Rapid Bus Transit System (BRT) project in the central region of Saudi Arabia.
The scope of the contract includes the supply and erection of more than 3,100 metric tons of structural steel with intumescent and cementitious fireproof coatings. The project includes the testing and commissioning of 17 units of BRT stations and five units of BRT bridges. The work is part of the third phase of Riyadh Rapid Bus Transit Lines within the King Abdulaziz Public Transport System project, owned by the Arriyadh Development Authority in Saudi Arabia.
The BRT System project is a fast-track, multicomponent undertaking with complex safety and security requirements. It will be delivered within a challenging time frame and will require an extraordinary level of attention to detail.
As is typical of the BRT Systems, the line will allow rush-hour buses to travel in bus-only lanes, which will be specific highway shoulder lanes that reduce traffic congestion and reduce commuting times. Currently utilized by many global cities, BRT is expected to provide an efficient, high-capacity and cost-effective transit solution for Riyadh and the entire central region.
Zamil Steel Construction Company (ZSCC) was recently awarded a turnkey contract by Abdul Latif Jameel Group, valued at SAR 45.5 million (USD 12.1 million), for the Beyt Al Fann Jameel art galleries and exhibition complex in the western region of Saudi Arabia.
The scope of the contract includes the design, fabrication, supply and erection of 1,300 metric tons of pre-engineered steel buildings, as well as the provision of all EPC/LSTK works, including civil, electrical, structural, architectural, electrical, external and finishing works for the Beyt Al Fann Jameel art galleries and exhibition complex. ZSCC will also perform the HVAC, firefighting systems, low current and communication systems, secondary infrastructure landscaping and hardscaping at the project site.
Since the project is located near the sea, the high water table at the site increases its complexity of scope by requiring adequate dewatering and shoring on all sides.
The project is a fast-track, multicomponent undertaking that requires a specific lead time for fitting and synchronization, in addition to the completion of other complex safety and security requirements within a challenging time frame.
“Our demonstrated success with turnkey facilities, including access to design and project management expertise and specialized materials manufacturing and services, makes our company the natural choice for this prestigious project,” said Mohammed Al Sahib, director of ZSCC. “Destined to become a national landmark as well as a worldwide destination, we are proud to participate in the construction of “Beyt Al Fann Jameel.”
“Beyt Al Fann Jameel” is a new international gathering point for artists and art lovers that invites visitors to Jeddah to delve into the world of art. It will house and exhibit all forms of visual art, both contemporary and traditionally inspired by the Islamic civilization, including drawings, paintings, calligraphy, design and much more.
The complex, which spans an area of more than 14,000 square meters, will feature an exhibition space specifically designed to display Islamic-inspired works, a space dedicated to local and visiting international exhibitions, and an open-air museum for the display of sculptures. Educational areas, such as an art laboratory, training rooms and a spacious room for lectures, are planned, as well as commercial space in the form of an event hall, cafeteria and retail outlets.
