Context and challenges
This client is a major real-estate developer and a pro-government Arabic daily newspaper publisher in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, based in Dammam.
This project dealt with the Dar Al Yaum Tower located in Dammam – Khobar Highway. The commercial building part represented an area of 4,500 square meters and consists of 21-floors (3-under ground basements floor, ground floor, mezzanine floor, 16 floors). Basements and ground floors covered the entire area of the plot which were used for parking and common utilities (water tanks, transformer room). The building had to be certified green building according to LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) silver plate certification.
In this context, the client has appointed Assystem as “supervision consultant” to carry out all the responsibilities of construction supervision during the construction stages.
