Air Products has agreed with the Dhahran Techno Valley Company to lease a plot of land at the Techno Valley. Here Air Products will build their new Technology Center for Saudi Arabia and the Middle East. The lease was formally signed at a ceremony at the Techno Valley headquarters on the 18th September 2017.
Since then Air Products project management and procurement teams have been working with local architects to complete the preliminary stages of the new building design. This includes developing the aesthetic look of the new building to capture the essence of Air Products as a company, while also being sympathetic to the local environment and neighboring buildings within the Dhahran Techno Valley. The complete design of the building, including all the necessary construction details, is expected to take up to five months. The team expects to break ground late spring 2018.
In the meantime a temporary office has been established on the 5th floor of Zamil House, located near the Corniche in Al Khobar. This will be home to the Technology Center until the building at the Techno Valley is completed. This office will provide Air Products with a base from which to recruit and train technology resources in preparation for the move to the new building early in 2019. The temporary office can accommodate 30 staff members. The recruitment process is already underway for engineers, researchers and support staff.
