DGDA works towards celebrating the rich and diverse culture and heritage of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s history and the Saudi people. Their efforts aim to honor the local community and safeguard the traditions of past generations through the preservation of the Kingdom’s history in a unique gathering place for future generations.
Diriyah already has a small selection of open-air and indoor museums dotted throughout UNESCO World Heritage Site At-Turaif. DGDA is working towards making Diriyah one of the region’s foremost destinations for historical and cultural knowledge-sharing activities, that will open its doors to the public in 2020.
The DGDA Corporate Campus aims to reflect this vision in conjunction with the 21st century construction technologies, where a building with lower carbon footprint and higher inhabitant-oriented solutions is emerged. The modular system used in the project is a composite steel structure combining light gauge and conventional steel systems, to provide the stability and rigidity of a concrete building, while reducing construction time and wastage significantly. The 6-month design & build duration for the project had been one of the greatest challenges that was achieved successfully.
