The Coastal Village Residential Buildings for The Red Sea Development Company
- Project Entered by: DuBox by Amana
- Client: The Red Sea Development Company
- Design: DuBox by Amana
- Contractor: Saudi Amana Contracting
DuBox leads the field in offsite manufacturing construction of volumetric modules in the GCC, delivering reduced costs, increased quality, faster completion times and an inherently sustainable construction model. This project is a 10-building residential complex for The Red Sea Development Company (TRSDC) in Saudi Arabia, comprising 288 one- or two-bedroomed units of housing for management and office staff. Seventy-five per cent of this project is designed, manufactured and assembled offsite in a controlled environment at a DuBox factory in the kingdom before being travelling by road to the Red Sea site. Each module is built in pre-cast concrete and is fully constructed and fitted out, including all mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineering, before reaching the site. Offsite manufacturing construction on this project commenced before the site was ready and took place in parallel to site clearance and landfilling works. This saved the client 74 days of manufacturing production time. Numerous savings have been made: a 30% reduction in labour costs; a 50% – 90% reduction in overall waste and a 30% reduction in solid waste. The project will complete on budget and on time in 11 months, 30% quicker than traditional construction.
