On Thursday, February 21st, the Jeddah Economic Company (JEC) announced that the joint venture between EC Harris and Mace won the project management contract for the Kingdom Tower.
CEO of JEC, Waleed Abduljaleel Batterjee said that the reason Mace was hired is to use the same team that worked for The Shard in London. On the other hand, EC Harris has a long list of projects in the region including the Grand Millenium Al-Wahda Hotel, Abu Dhabi’s largest hotel complex.
In the coming weeks the Jeddah Economic Company will also appoint a quantity surveyor for the project.
Work by the two firms is expected to start in the middle of the year. Currently, German firm Bauer is executing foundation work on the construction site.
