Al Bawani has been awarded the first contract for the Southern Dunes inland resort at The Red Sea
Al Bawani has been awarded the first contract for the Southern Dunes site, which involves civil and structural works for 40 hotel villas as well as utility works and site-wide roads. The roads are an integral part of development plans for the project as they will interlink the hotel villas, restaurant and central hotel buildings.
We will also be responsible for the earthworks and stabilization of each of the villas, along with their structures and underground utility connections – an essential part of the development plans. Al Bawani’s scope also includes the construction of the infrastructure networks for the Southern Dunes resort, such as sewage, potable water, telecommunications and landscape lighting.
As part of the contract, Al Bawani will establish staff accommodation on-site near the Southern Dunes development. This will eventually house 700 employees and will include a host of high-quality amenities. The close proximity of the housing to the site will substantially reduce workers’ travel time and help improve productivity.
Fakher Alshawaf, CEO at Al Bawani, said: “This award represents a first for the Southern Dunes and is an essential part of the development plans for The Red Sea Project. We’re honored to be one of the first companies to work across this beautiful site and are pleased to play our role in helping to open up this destination and our country to the rest of the world.”
