Zamil Steel Construction awarded SPIMACO contract for Headquarters and Warehouse in Eastern Province

Monday, 12th June 2017

Zamil Steel Construction Company (ZSCC) has been awarded a full turnkey contract by Saudi Pharmaceutical Industries and Medical Appliances Corporation (SPIMACO) for the construction of SPIMACO's headquarters and warehouse in Al-Fawazia Industrial Area, Al-Khobar in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia.

SPIMACO is a leader in the Saudi market for the development, manufacturing and sales of pharmaceutical products and medical appliances. Construction of this critical facility allows ZSCC to enter the Kingdom's growing pharmaceutical sector.

The scope of the contract includes the design, fabrication, supply and erection of pre-engineered steel buildings, as well as the provision of all EPC works, including civil, electrical, structural, architectural, electrical, external and finishing works for the SPIMACO headquarters and warehouse complex. ZSCC will also perform the HVAC, firefighting systems, low current and communication systems, secondary infrastructure landscaping and hardscaping, and design verification and validation works at the project site.

Since the project is located near the sea, the high water table increases its complexity of scope by requiring adequate dewatering and shoring on all sides.

The main structure of the warehouse is a steel building that has been designed and fabricated and will be delivered by Zamil Steel, the subsidiary of Zamil Industrial engaged in pre-engineered steel design and fabrication.

The SPIMACO headquarters and warehouse construction 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.

'ZSCC's reputation for turnkey project excellence in contracting services, product quality and prompt completion is on the rise throughout the region,' said Mohammed Al Sahib, director of ZSCC. 'The SPIMACO headquarters and warehouse project provides us with yet another excellent opportunity for partnership in the growth of diverse businesses as we meet their needs for specialized, ready to use facilities on time, within budget and to their complete satisfaction.'
