Saudi construction firms set for digital transformation

RIYADH, 29 days ago

Saudi construction firms aim for 2018 to be the 'tipping point' for digital transformation, ensuring the SR178 billion ($47.4 billion) worth of projects can be completed on-time and on-budget, according to the industry experts.

Saudi Vision 2030 and the National Transformation Program 2020 are advancing complex projects, including high-speed rail, airports, and seaports, said experts ahead of a major industry event.

Saudi Build, the largest construction show in the kingdom, will kick off tomorrow (October 23) and run for the next three days.

In anticipation of this growth, construction technology and software solutions are major points of interest at Saudi Build, across architects, designers, engineers, and contractors, they added.

"Building information modelling software solutions are in high demand in the kingdom, helping to enhance productivity and collaboration across the entire project lifecycle, and reducing waste and cost," remarked Anwar Al Qwasmi, the general manager for Saudi Arabia at global construction technology company Trimble Solutions.

"In the current economic climate, technology solutions can drive business competitiveness and new levels of digital business innovation," noted Al Qwasmi.

Trimble works closely with leading Saudi projects, including the Abdullah Arif Intersection Bridge in  Makkah Municipality, Riyadh Metro depots, and the King Abdulaziz International Airport railway station in Jeddah.

“Saudi Build showcases Trimble’s commitment to ensuring that Saudi Vision 2030 mega-projects are delivered on time and on budget. The construction sector is vital for supporting the kingdom’s nationwide economic competitiveness and diversified economic growth,” observed Al Qwasmi.

At Saudi Build expo, Trimble will be unveiling key solutions such as Tekla Structures, Tekla Structural Design, and Trimble Connect collaboration environment, from design through steel fabrication and concrete cast in-place and pouring.-TradeArabia News Service
