De Boer to instal huge exhibition hall in KAEC.

De Boer Middle East has won the contract to build a high-specification semi-permanent exhibition hall at King Abdullah Economic City located close to Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, a report said.

The King Abdullah Exhibition Centre, with 6,500 sq m useable space, will be one of the largest temporary structures to be built in the region, said the Saudi Gazette report said.

Sustainability is a key feature of the building, which has an expected life span of between five and 10 years. Following this, it can be dismantled and reused in a new location, as exhibitions move to a permanent facility being built in the coming years.

Specially insulated wall panels on the Delta Emperor structure will be added to reduce air conditioning requirements, improving overall energy efficiency, the report said.

The structure, which has a 60 m x 90 m footprint, will house an exhibition and meeting space of more than 6,500 sq m - larger than a football pitch.

The turnkey venue combines the latest temporary structure technology combined with traditional building techniques to deliver the look and feel of a permanent building. The whole venue is designed with a high specification interior fit out encompassing adaptable conference rooms and retractable exhibition hall divides.

The structure is expected to be completed within two to three months.

The hall will be centrally located in the King Abdullah Economic City project, situated 100 km from Jeddah.

Edward Gallagher, De Boer Middle East's Business Development Director, said the city can expect to be delivering exhibitions and events by October.

"With our continued developments in construction technology, De Boer can now deliver full, turnkey venues for any need, from temporary airport terminals to warehouses and sports facilities to exhibition venues in weeks instead of years. These are facilities that will last at least 10-15 years without any maintenance overhaul," he said.
