Habtoor Leighton Group (HLG), operating as Leighton Middle East Contracting, has been awarded a healthcare project worth US$316mn by the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Health
The project, referred to as PPNNCC, will be delivered as part of a joint venture with Al Latifia Trading and Contracting.
PPNNCC, which involves the construction of new medical centres on the current King Fahad Medical City campus to integrate with existing medical facilities, is located in Riyadh.
HLG chief executive officer and managing director Laurie Voyer said the new project further reinforced the success of HLG’s strategy to expand into new geographic markets.
“This project is in line with our growth strategy to diversify our geographic footprint, and we look forward to working with our JV partner, Al Latifia Trading and Contracting,” Voyer said.
HLG managing director-elect, Jose Antonio Lopez-Monis, said the medical project, which will be the first of five specialist hospitals to be built in Saudi Arabia over the next five years, will see the delivery of technologically advanced medical facilities.
