Al Saedan Real Estate Development Company has entered into an agreement with a Japanese technology company to create an industrial technical transformation in the real estate sector in the Kingdom.
The agreement aims to establish a modern building technology factory located in the Riyadh region, which it is envisaged will raise the construction sector’s contribution to the nation’s GDP from 3.5% to 15%. It will also prepare rehabilitation and training programs for citizens to transfer knowledge and localize technology, training 100 people in the first year.
Scheduled to begin in 2023, the first production operations at the factory will utilize new state-of-the-art technology, allowing for the manufacture of 1,200 villas annually. These will incorporate environmentally friendly standards and allow individual citizens to choose the appropriate design for their homes. The whole system will reduce the operational cost and save approximately 40% of the energy cost.
