Arcadis’ Binzagr National Distribution Center project named KSA’s Industrial Project of the Year in 2020 by MEED Projects Awards

Arcadis’ Binzagr National Distribution Center project in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia was named National Winner for Industrial Project of the Year by MEED Projects Awards, which celebrates the best GCC industry projects.

Binzagr National Distribution Center is one of the tallest (50m) and fully automated warehouses for fast moving consumer goods in the Middle East. Its innovative design performed jointly by Arcadis and Miebach utilizes hypoxic fire prevention system instead of conventional sprinkler system. In addition, the distribution center is expected to improve the performance of Binzagr’s distribution network by increasing speed, flexibility of movements and transportation of products across the Middle East and North Africa given its strategic location close to the King Abdullah Port.

The MEED Projects Awards in association with Mashreq recognizes the construction element of project delivery as well as the value and quality of a project throughout its lifecycle.

Fadi Al-Alwani, Site Supervision Director, commented, “It is an honor to be once again recognized together with all the other national winners in the region in one of the most prestigious award-giving body in the GCC projects sector. This goes to show the passion and commitment that we allot as a company in the projects that we do. Congratulations to all of our colleagues who have been part of this project.”

Richard Thompson, Editorial Director at MEED, said, “The high quality of entries combined with the number of entries received this has year made the judging incredibly challenging. Despite the challenges in the market, it is fantastic to see such high caliber projects being executed and is a testament to the commitment and excellence of the region’s infrastructure stakeholders. These companies have re-affirmed why they are considered the bedrock of the region’s economy. Congratulations to all our national winners.”
