Saudi Oger starts construction of cultural centre
by CW Staff on Sep 17, 2010

Saudi Oger has begun foundation work for the ambitious King Abdulaziz Centre for World Culture in Dhahran in the Eastern province of the Kingdom.

Saudi Oger, the main contractor for the project, has been on site for several months, excavating and preparing the site for the first foundation pour this past week

The Centre was designed by Norwegian architectural firm Snøhetta, which was awarded the design work after winning an international competition that included top-tier Saudi and international design firms.

“The commencement of the Center’s construction is a proud moment for us,” said Nasser A. Al-Nafisee, general manager of Saudi Aramco Public Affairs.

“For over 75 years, Saudi Aramco has been committed to making significant contributions toward the betterment of the nation, and the King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture will be one of the most visible and creative manifestations of that commitment, extending not just to the people of the Kingdom, but around the world.”

The striking design is mean to resemble a collection of glossy pebbles stacked in the desert. The five connected buildings – each with their own unique function and structural geometry – contain an auditorium, library, theatre, exhibition hall, museum and children’s centre.

Buro Happold devised the innovative post-tension concrete system to provide support for this non-traditional cantilevered structure.

Samsung SDS Advances Into Middle East With ‘Smart Convergence’




Samsung SDS announced on May 7 it will take part in Saudi Aramco’s King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture project, providing Digital Space Convergence (DSC) solutions to develop, build and manage IT systems for the center’s key facilities.
The King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture is being built in commemoration of the 75th anniversary of Saudi Aramco, the world’s largest oil company, with a mission to inspire a passion for knowledge, creativity and cross-cultural engagement, thus contributing to human development. Its facilities, to be located in the city of Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, include libraries, museums, multimedia theaters, and children’s education spaces, to name a few.


DSC is aimed at creating a “Smart Convergence Business Model” in physical spaces by applying cutting-edge information technologies encompassing digital devices, wired and wireless networks and software. It is a rapidly growing field of business, being applied to facilities such as libraries, exhibitions, museums and multiplex shopping malls.
Samsung SDS has accumulated much expertise in the DSC business, with a solid track record including projects for the National Museum of Korea and Korean universities such as Yonsei University and Myongji University. By winning the IT package of the King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture project, Samsung SDS has become the first major Korean company to advance into the global DSC market.


Unlike other companies that design and develop information systems primarily on site, Samsung SDS undertakes this process in Korea, with only the actual building stage being handled on site. This “Advanced IT Business Model,” thus, contributes greatly to reducing both construction time and business risks and has helped Samsung SDS secure the latest contract with Saudi Aramco.
With the deal, Samsung SDS has made a step closer to achieving this year’s goal of raising 30% of its total sales from overseas markets.
“This project is significant in that it is exporting overseas the business credibility that has been gained domestically,” Executive Vice President Andrew H. Chang of Global Business Division of Samsung SDS said. “Saudi Aramco’s recognition of Samsung SDS’s competence is a result of the successes of the previous consultation and design projects.”
Mr. Chang added: “Through this project, we are planning to expand both our businesses with Saudi Aramco and our overseas business opportunities, which will include Saudi Arabia, the Middle East and eventually to the rest of the world.”
