Project Brief
The Girls Campus at King Saud University (KSU)
is a new university campus with 34 major
buildings and a campus-wide infrastructure
system with ancillary/accessory structures,
access roads, parking, landscape and
hardscape, and mechanical and electrical site
utilities. The project is being constructed by
Saudi Binladin Group (SBG), the largest
construction contractor in the Middle East. The
project is divided into 11 zones which cover a
built-up area of approx 1,000,951 sqm with 70
separate structures / packages.
ALAFCO contributed to the the following main
areas of the project: Teaching and Research
facilities for Undergraduates and Graduate
Studies, several medical colleges, sports
complex, Auditorium Complex, Prayer Area,
Restaurants, Central Services Building including
workshops, Emergency Services Buildings, and
Car park area.
Key Stats
  • Scale/Scope- Project size
    20 BN SAUDI RIYALS
  • Time Scale
    4 Years
  • Type of services provided
    Manufacturing, Installation, and
    Testing
  • Amount of duct installed
    5000 Tonnes of Duct
  • Estimated Value of
    Project

    Above 100 Million SAR
Since last four years , ALAFCO have proved themselves better
than their competitors present at our campus and due to their
competitive edge ALAFCO successfully completed approximately,
80% of the HVAC scope of work. Their performance has been
excellent especially in connection with critical duct
installation for our laboratories and hospital application. We
strongly recommend ALAFCO as an excellent contractor. We
wish them all the very best in any of their future endeavors.

    tonnes of duct work and
    accessories
  • ALAFCO also installed other
    components of the HVAC
    system such sound
    attenuators, VAV boxes
  • ALAFCO’s advantage is
    demonstrated by the fact that
    ALAFCO was chosen to do
    majority of the HVAC scope of
    work, amongst three other
    competitors also chosen
  • Only ALAFCO remained from
    project start to end
  • ALAFCO introduced the UK
    made unique and innovative
    Hanging systems,called
    Gripple. This helped reduce
    installation time by approx 6
    times, lowered waste, and
    reduced work at site
  • ALAFCO introduced and
    installed CHEMLINE coated
    ducts for use in 600 medical
    laboratories to extract toxic
    fumes
  • ALAFCO responded to urgent
    client needs such as the
    requirement of Chemline
    coated ducts. Therefore,
