French construction and engineering consultancy Egis announced on Monday that it has been appointed as the Project Management Company (PMC) for SEVEN’s (Saudi Entertainment Ventures) entertainment destinations in the Northwestern and Southern Provinces, including the recently announced project in Tabuk.

The scope includes overseeing the design of the entertainment destinations and attractions development through all work stages of development, the identification of potential specialist partnerships required in the execution of the project as well as construction and project management services.

SEVEN, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Public Investment Fund (PIF), was established to invest, develop and operate entertainment destinations in the Kingdom as part of Vision 2030 economic diversification strategy.

“SEVEN will bring world-class entertainment which will contribute to the improvement of the sector and the quality of life of the Kingdom’s population; an objective both Egis and SEVEN have in common,” said Alaa AbuSiam, CEO of Egis in the Middle East and South Asia.

Abdullah AlDawood, Chairman of SEVEN, said: “We are delighted to be working with Egis, who are leaders in their field with a strong track record of delivering projects to the highest of standards.

Last week, Saudi’s MATARAT Holding had signed a three-year agreement with Egis for technical and project management services covering 26 airports in the Kingdom.
