Multi-Use Towers Reach LEED Goals with Aeroseal Duct SealingKevin Dugan
An estimated 68 percent of Saudi Arabia’s electricity goes to air conditioning. Ensuring a building’s HVAC system provides proper airflow is critical due to the country’s extreme heat. To meet this demand, in-country construction companies are experts in energy-efficient buildings.
- Building: Four, Mixed-Use Towers in the KAFD – Parcels 5.07 & 5.08
- Location: Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
- General Contractor: Saudi Constructioneers Contracting Company
- Sealing Consultant: AWT Services
- Goal: Reduce duct leakage to meet building code and deliver the project
- Before Aeroseal: 9,141 CFM total leakage
- After Aeroseal: 310 CFM total leakage
- Results: 96.6% average leakage reduction and all buildings meet code, allowing SAUDICO to deliver the project
Saudi Constructioneers Contracting Company (SAUDICO) is one of these leaders.
The company provides engineering, management and contracting services in a wide range of fields, including architectural, civil, and electromechanical engineering. SAUDICO also blends nearly 50 years of experience with state-of-the-art LEED and high performance building practices to handle some of the most distinguished design and build projects, including several in the King Abdullah Financial District (KAFD).
When airflow issues stopped construction at one of SAUDICO’s KAFD projects, it was urgent to find a fast and thorough solution.
“Project delays of any kind are costly;” said Nidhal Al Masri, SAUDICO’s MEP Project Manager. “When the project is located in one of the world’s high-profile financial centers, the true cost of a delay isn’t limited to just financial impact.”
