Our History

Engineering & Architecture

The engineering and architecture disciplines have been at the forefront of Dar Al Riyadh’s portfolio throughout the company’s existence. Services include conceptual and detail design for all building structures, infrastructure, and complex industrial installations.
Throughout the years, our design teams have strived for synergy between creativity, innovative designs, and solutions that meet business and organisational objectives. Today, our portfolio encompasses all general engineering disciplines, urban planning and architecture.
During the first half of the 1980s, an industrial engineering unit expertise was established to serve the growing industrial sectors of petrochemical, oil, gas, and power. Nowadays, our portfolio consists of a full range of industrial engineering services, including front-end engineering design, plant modelling, and project management.

Construction Management Services

In response to evolving client requirements, Dar Al Riyadh has always been fervent to add new services to its portfolio. Thus, the inclusion of construction support services was a logical step. Over the past three decades, we have successfully guided dozens of large scale construction projects for our most valued clients in the governmental and semi-governmental sectors. Recent examples are the construction supervision of forty-seven towers in the King Abdullah Financial District project and the Information Technology & Communications Complex in Riyadh.

Human Resources

From its inception, Dar Al Riyadh has been working closely with stakeholders at all client organisation levels as a foundation for continuous enhancement of operational performance. In the late eighties, this approach resulted in the introduction of a wide spectrum of operational value-added services ranging from secondment of engineering experts to short and long term staffing services and Saudization programs. Since then, Dar Al Riyadh has successfully placed thousands of engineers, technical staff, and young Saudi nationals with local multinational companies in all sectors of the economy.

Systems & Solutions

In the early nineties, the inclusion of building solutions related to heating, cooling, and power was a natural next step to advance in the engineering value chain. With a cohort of highly qualified project managers and engineers, Dar Al Riyadh has been instrumental in the development of many complex industrial installations and commercial and institutional buildings around the country. Since then, our solutions divisions have contributed to flawless operations and the satisfaction of thousands of users. In addition, from 1995 onwards Dar Al Riyadh has designed, installed, and maintained dozens of safety and security systems for a variety of purposes, amongst which are public warning systems in case of floods, other natural disasters, and gas release, commissioned by the Civil Defense.

Geomatics Services & Solutions

Last but not least, the progress and increased visibility of geomatics in day-to-day life has been made possible by advances in computer science and software engineering. The creation of Dar Al Riyadh Geomatics Services and Solutions in 2010 was a matter of course. The division is fully specialised in geospatial information fields including GIS, GPS, digital mapping, and remote sensing. The division has designed many smart systems to capture, manage, and present all types of spatial or geographical data for clients such as the Ministry of Municipal and Rural Affairs.
