RIYADH: The Red Sea Development Company (TRSDC), which is behind one of the most ambitious renewable tourism projects in the world, has awarded contracts to two local firms to provide all services related to maintenance, security, and supply, in addition to administrative and special cleaning services, the Saudi Press Agency reported.
The contracts have been awarded to Red Sea International and Facilities Management Company and are related to the workers’ residential village for the project, which is located along the Kingdom’s western coast.
Each company will be responsible for the accommodation of up to 5,000 construction workers, and both firms will ensure the facility is managed according to the highest living standards, whether people work directly for TRSDC or for one of its contractors.
A dedicated office will also be set up to provide support and assistance to residents of the village 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
John Pagano, TRSDC CEO, said that the workers’ residential village was an important element and an integral part of the project’s first phase.
He added that TRSDC was committed to providing everything that guaranteed the safety, welfare, and happiness of those working on the project.
“This will enable us to continue to make further progress,” said Pagano.
