ACTS wins Riyadh metro work

January 2017

Advanced Construction Technology Services (ACTS) has been awarded a contract to carry out testing and analysis on construction materials to be used for the Riyadh Metro Lines One and Two.

The metro contract win is the second for ACTS after it was awarded a previous assignment to carry out geotechnical and geophysical works on the same two metro lines in support of the BACS (Saudi Arabian Bechtel, Almabani General Contractors and Consolidated Contractors Company  and Siemens Aktiengesellschaft) consortium, said the company.

The new three-year contract will see ACTS operating one of the largest site laboratories for infrastructure in the kingdom with the setting up of an 800-sq-m laboratory space to investigate and assess related construction materials.

ACTS will also integrate the use of a sophisticated quality control web-based program developed by the company, to track, evaluate and capture data for construction materials testing.

In addition, it will deploy more than 150 highly trained professionals on three different site locations to provide diverse technical expertise required under the agreement, it stated.

ACTS was first commissioned to undertake geotechnical and geophysical works on Riyadh Metro Lines One and Two under a subcontract package awarded by BACS.
