Emaar-owned architectural façade specialist, Multiforms, has won a US $68 million (AED250 million) contract from Saudi Oger, the main contractor on the King Abdullah University of Science & Technology (Kaust) campus.

Under the contract, which could rise to $95 million depending on the developer's requirements, Multiforms will undertake stonewall cladding for six buildings and install curtain walls, louvers, titanium, cladding and doors to four main buildings.

The external cladding will be completed within a year of commencement of work. The Multiforms cladding is expected to be a valuable addition to the developers' aim of having a minimal environmental footprint without compromising the aesthetic value.

Kaust, currently under construction over an area of 26 million m2 along the Red Sea coast at Thuwal, will be a premium graduate-level research university comprising interdisciplinary research institutes.

The project is expected to be completed by September 2009. The main consultant for the project is the US-based HOK.
