Comprising a single land plot of 1.35 million sqm in Al-Madinah Al-Munawarah, Rua Al-Madinah Development is a key mega project for Saudi Arabia and is one of a number of vision realisation programs which will achieve the Kingdom’s Vision 2030. The master plan integrates with Al Masjid Al-Nabawi, one of the largest mosques in the world and the second-holiest site in Islam, enhancing the experiences of visitors and residents alike with environmental sustainability, crowd safety features and economic viability. Infrastructure packages for Rua Al-Madinah will support the delivery of approximately 500 new housing units and 50,000 new hotel rooms, together with associated retail and hospitality offers, landscaping, transportation and public realm to truly enrich the experiences of pilgrims performing Hajj and Omrah.
The expansive Rua Al-Madinah master plan will create a modern and well-serviced community for pilgrims, visitors and residents alike. Omnium’s infrastructure Cost Consultancy experience in KSA ensures the implementation of reliable services that will accommodate the needs of hundreds of thousands of visitors annually, and we are honoured to be appointed to this important package of work.
