Construction work has begun on the women's college at King Saud University in Riyadh, following the award of the SR8.8bn ($2.4bn) contract to the local Saudi Binladin Group in December.

The firm submitted the low-bid for the college in July to the Finance Ministry.

At least five firms submitted bids for the construction package, including Saudi Oger, Al-Rashid Trading & Contracting Company and Athens-based Consolidated Contractors International Company (CCC).

The scope of the contract covers the construction of up to 12 buildings on a 1.3-square-kilometre site in Riyadh.

Work is expected to take three years to complete.

Binladin recently secured a SR10bn contract for construction work at the new Princess Nourah bint Abdulrahman University for Women, also in Riyadh (MEED 1:2:09).

Dr. Al-Othman added that the support of the Saudi rulers to the strategic projects of the University reflects the close follow up of whatever serves the development and reform in line with the fact that the support of higher education is the basis of any progress that we all looking for and through which we can achieve the prosperity of our country. He noted that such support represents a historic shift in the development process of King Saud University.
Dr. Al Othman said that time has become appropriate for such investment projects which ensure the continuity of the financial resources for the University, and will thus enable it to compete globally.
He outlined that the University is setting up the first educational endowment in the region, which will contribute to the financing of technological research and development programs that will serve the human kind and boost the knowledge-based economies for achievement of sustainable development for the country. This will also strengthen the resources of the university as is the case with the prestigious world universities to stimulate innovation and excellence at all levels, attract, motivate and sponsor researchers and the creative, talented and distinguished people, make greater use of the university human resources, infrastructure and facilities, and support the university hospitals.

50 million R.S was donated for the project by a saudi business man
