The Story

The South Border Infrastructure Project is implemented to provide a new infrastructure network for the protection of the Southern Border of Saudi Arabia with Yemen and Oman. The project entails construction of asphalt roads along the Border, Border Stations, Sector Headquarter Buildings, Sector Compound Buildings and Rear Gate Buildings. The border will be enclosed with various types of 3m high fencing which will also include Entrance and Exit Gates. Helipads will be built to allow for helicopter access to various buildings. Link Roads will be constructed which shall connect various security buildings to the border roads. The project is divided into four areas (regions) named as Area 1 (Jazan), Area 2 (Assir / Najran), Area 3 (Najran) and Area 4 (Eastern Region). The scope of work is to provide supervision consultancy services for the project, which includes but is not limited to, project management, construction supervision, coordination among interrelated projects and authorities as well as technical consultancy to study and review survey reports, geotechnical investigations, hydrologic and hydraulic reports, review and approve designs and related technical submissions.
