Company: Al Fouzan Trading and General Construction

Designation: Chairman

One of the most remarkable recent achievements for Al Fouzan Trading and Contracting was the construction of a ministries’ complex in a record time of five months.

The $300mn project included 50 buildings, in addition to six mosques, a health centre, and a civil defence building. While the project was scheduled to be completed in seven months, the efforts of 12,000 workers contributed to cutting down the time to build it. That is not to mention the several huge projects that the company has executed, mainly in the Kingdom’s healthcare sector, such as a university hospital in the King Abdullah Medical City in Makkah, and three medical tower projects at King Saud Medical City, Prince Salman Hospital and Al-Iman General Hospital.

Ongoing projects include phase 3 of a $56mn housing facility for Al Imam Muhammad Ibn Saudi Islamic University, as well as a $59mn medical tower.

Al Fouzan was founded in 1974 and is run by chairman Sheikh Mohammed Abdullah Al Fouzan.
