Innovation & Value:
ByrneLooby utilised BIM modelling by integrating Holebase SI and Civil 3D with Autodesk Infraworks. This helped us to quickly revise the site investigation layout to reflect the master plan layout changes. Qiddiya will support several goals of Vision 2030, which include driving economic diversification, job creation, fostering a start-up culture, driving youth and female empowerment and doubling household spending on domestic leisure and entertainment. The resort is anticipated to attract 17 million visitors annually by 2030, add up to SR17 billion to the country’s gross domestic product and provide 25,000 jobs.
