Multi-Use Towers in KAFD Reach LEED Goals with Aeroseal
Duct Sealing Eliminates Airflow Issues, Ending Costly Construction Shutdown

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.

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).

Project Overview
Building Four, Mixed-Use Towers in the KAFD – Parcels 5.07 & 5.08
Location Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
Aeroseal Contractors AWT Services
Contract Engineer Saudi Constructioneers Contracting Company
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

The airflow issues were addressed meticulously and quickly by AWT Services. The Aeroseal duct sealing went smoothly and delivered real results. Based on this project, we will consider Aeroseal again to ensure our buildings always meet code from the first time.

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.”
