Amaala awards contract for Triple Bay Village

November 2020

Amaala, the ultra-luxury destination located along Saudi Arabia’s northwestern coast, has awarded Tamimi Global Company (Tafga) the design-and-build contract for the construction of the first stage of the Triple Bay Construction Village.

The contract also includes the second and third stages of civil and infrastructure works for the construction village.

Triple Bay is one of the three communities that will represent three different sets of experiences for Amaala visitors. The other two include The Coastal Development and The Island communities. Triple Bay will offer a holistic wellness retreat, state-of-the-art diagnostic medical facilities and authentic treatments designed to incorporate elements from the local environment. It will also be home to a fully integrated sports and entertainment community.

A part of Saudi-based Tamimi Group, Tafga has been providing a wide range of services, including operations and maintenance, temporary facility construction, facility management services, industrial services, and highly qualified management services since 1977.

The company was awarded the contract mainly due to its understanding of the local landscape and capabilities in creating short and long-term residential communities.

Catering to a total occupancy of 15,552 upon completion, each stage will address the needs of 5,184 future residents. The world-class accommodations will also feature a full range of community facilities catering to the diverse needs of on-site staff, says Amaala.

In line with Amaala’s sustainability goals, the development of the Construction Village will employ off-site fabrication and modular construction techniques, thereby reducing the environmental impact of both fabrication and installation of the village. This approach will also allow for a reduced delivery time and ensure enhanced quality, it states.

CEO Nicholas Naples says: “Amaala will set the standard in sustainable, community living, and this has to start with our construction workforce quarters. Providing world-class accommodations, the Construction Village will aid in attracting, retaining, and training the best in global talent.”

Amaala, he states, is committed to an operational zero-carbon footprint as its goal.

“Through our partnership with Tamimi Group, we will define a new standard of excellence for sustainable workforce accommodation, addressing the diverse needs of all construction staff, while creating a community feel, enhancing both the welfare and quality of life,” he adds.

On the Amaala tie-up, Chairman Sheikh Tariq Al Tamimi says: “Tamimi Group is pleased to be a part of the prestigious Amaala Project.”

“Tamimi Group aims not only to meet the high sustainability and environmental requirements, but to exceed expectations by providing a state-of-the-art living facility unlike any other,” he states.

Set in the Prince Mohammad bin Salman Natural Reserve across three unique communities, the 4,155-sq-km year-round destination Amaala will include 2,800 hotel keys and more than 900 residential villas, apartments and estate homes, alongside 200 high-end retail establishments, fine dining, wellness and recreational facilities.
