Al-Salem Johnson Controls showcases rental solutions at Hajj expo

The Ministry of Hajj and Umrah and related government entities work to ensure the comfort of pilgrims by offering diversified services. These include air conditioning and cooling solutions, which are especially important now that the since recent Hajj and Umrah seasons and Ramadan have lately coincided with the summer season.
The Coordination Council of Local Hajj Operators recently organized an exhibition under the theme “Equipping Hajj with Integrated and Supportive Services.” A number of service providers from different sectors participated in the event. Al-Salem Johnson Controls (YORK), a leading multi-industrial company and provider of integrated solutions that incorporate HVAC equipment, fire and security systems, building management systems and controls, participated in the exhibition.
The company has successfully offered its services in the past years to huge outdoor projects that witness overcrowding, including at the Two Holy Mosques.
During the exhibition, Al-Salem Johnson Controls presented the company’s services and solutions to the participating companies, highlighting its rental solutions.
The company is expanding holistic rental services of the air conditioning units and electrical power generators as it believes that the rental services are the ideal solution for cooling the Two Holy Mosques and the pilgrims’ camps.
It is also ideal for peak pilgrimage seasons when extra air conditioning units are needed, as well as for periodic maintenance, emergencies and abrupt breakdowns.
With warehouses located across Saudi Arabia, it is easy for Al-Salem Johnson Controls to have an immediate response to HVAC requirements by supplying air conditioning units and electrical power generators.
The company’s specialized team provides immediate integrated solutions that include initial diagnosis of the situation, installation of equipment, operation and maintenance as well as the dismantling and removal of equipment after the rental period is completed, which may vary between long- and short-term rentals based on the requirements.
Al-Salem Johnson Controls has been successfully operating and maintaining the world’s second largest cooling plant for the Holy Mosque in Makkah, one of the world’s largest cooling stations for the Prophet’s Mosque in Madinah, the Zamzam station, the hospital in Mina and the Jamarat area.
The company has previously provided its rental solutions to the Mataf expansion project at the Holy Mosque, the expansion of the Jamarat area, the Saudi Project for Utilization of Hajj Meat, and the Mina tents project.

32 countries taking part in Saudi Build 2018

The Riyadh Exhibitions Company Ltd. is hosting Saudi Build 2018 from Monday to Thursday at the Riyadh International Conference and Exhibition Center. The Saudi Export Development Authority, which seeks to strengthen Saudi Arabia’s non-oil exports in line with Saudi Vision 2030, is the event’s platinum sponsor. 

The event comes at a time when the Saudi building equipment market is steadily growing. The industry is expected to achieve a compound annual growth rate of 3.1 percent between 2017 and 2022. 

The 30th edition of the largest international construction technology and building materials exhibition in Saudi Arabia brings together local and international experts, decision-makers, and leaders to discuss emerging investment opportunities arising from the government’s $3.5 billion allocation for the construction of roads and bridges this year. Allocating higher funds aims to further diversify the Kingdom’s economy in line with Saudi Vision 2030.

Mohammad Al Al-Sheikh, head of marketing, Riyadh Exhibitions Company Ltd., said: “Saudi Build 2018 is taking place amid increased construction activities, especially in the industrial and commercial sectors, in the local market in keeping with the goals of the National Transformation Program 2020 and Saudi Vision 2030. The event will give all participants a direct access to the promising opportunities the Saudi market has to offer. Investors interested in entering the domestic market and beating the competition will benefit from the event. This year, it will focus on sustainable construction, which plays a key role in the government’s economic diversification plan and sustainability goals. Investors and decision-makers from the government and private sectors are expected to attend to explore current and future construction projects in Saudi Arabia. The construction sector now accounts for 45 percent of the total construction industry in the Middle East.”

Saudi Build 2018 will be held in conjunction with Saudi Stone Tech 2018 and Saudi PMV Series 2018. All three events will give visitors deep insights into the latest innovations and developments in the construction sector. Saudi Build 2018 is expected to bring together 512 exhibitors from 32 countries and more than 15,000 visitors who will participate in the event’s interactive presentations and workshops.

Al Al-Sheikh added: “Saudi Build 2018 is a result of our long efforts to create a world-class platform for local, regional and international building and construction industry leaders, backed with 38 years of experience in organizing a series of leading exhibitions and conferences that contribute to the growth of the Saudi economy. We are optimistic that the event will further enhance the confidence of the international community in the domestic construction industry. 

The value of the country’s current construction projects is at $284.3 billion, while over 700 projects are expected to be launched in the coming months and to be completed by 2022.”
