Located in Mekkah, Saudia Arabia, inside Islam’s holiest city Mekkah Techno Valley is a project that was taken by Umm Al-Qura University (UQU). EVIC Consulting’s role was designing the façade and interior of the smart compound’s business center, providing services in architecture, interior design, landscaping, MEP consulting, BOQ, and cost estimate analysis.
Taking its inspirations from local culture and geography, the business center echoes a contemporary interpretation of the area. The structure consists of three floors and a basement with a built up area of 34, 236 square meters. Being part of the initiative is in essence symbolic of MTV’s role of driving Saudi Arabia into digital age with smart architectural facilities and technological features that spell out the country’s commitment to building smart cities with ecologically-friendly solutions that significantly minimize carbon emissions.
