JEC has been instantiated by a group of pioneers in construction, contracting, and leaders in the business world, whereby each partner has contributed in their own way, through their strength points, creativity, proactivity and intelligence..



To build a city of extravagant proportions, Jeddah Economic Company has joined forces with some of the world leaders in consulting, engineering, and construction.

No compromise will be made when it comes to achieveing a project expected to be aninternational icon . Bringing such a vision into reality requires the ultimate combination of expertise, knowledge, and capabilities.





Jeddah Economic Company

At an incredible speed!!

Despite the size, the speed of the construction is very high.
