Riyadh, June 24, 2010

Keo International Consultants, a global consultancy in the construction industry, has been awarded the contract to design bridges, depot and station for the new Riyadh monorail.

Keo was awarded the contract by Saudi Oger, a top construction and FM service provider, to design the 3.5 km elevated rail viaducts, switch bridges, long span bridges and 131 piers supporting the monorail train system, Station 1 and the train maintenance depot.

Keo deliverables include the detailed design of over 30 bridges as well as complete architectural and engineering design for the train maintenance depot and station 1.

Keo’s approach will carefully consider critical factors such as durability and maintenance, constructability, aesthetics, materials, economy of structural solution, and whole life cycle costs, a statement said.

Keo will team up with Bombardier, Freyssinet and Scott Wilson to deliver the project for Saudi Oger, which was awarded the contract by the Rayadah Investment Company, the investment vehicle of the Public Pension Agency of the government of Saudi Arabia.
