Housing Minister Majed bin Abdullah Al- a Hogaila handed over the Kingdom’s first ‘48-hour’ house in Dammam to its new owner, Sultan Al-Qurashi, on Thursday. The house is the first in the SAKANI Program, part of the Al-Hakimiah Company’s Al-Wajiha project, which falls under the Kingdom’s Building Technology Stimulus Program. The Al-Wajiha project will comprise 574 villas, constructed using non-traditional techniques.
Each housing unit will reportedly take just two days to build.
The Building Technology Stimulus Program is part of Saudi Vision 2030, and its aim is to speed up construction and provide citizens of the Kingdom with high-quality, competitively priced housing, and to stimulate localization of the Kingdom’s construction industry.
Al-Hogail praised the developers for their landmark achievement, urged them to keep working to ensure the project is completed on time, and promised to continue finding ways to provide the best services for Saudi citizens.
