In addition to the headquarters office in Riyadh, Saudconsult has a Central Region office, also located in Riyadh, Eastern Region office in Al Khobar, A western Region office in Jeddah & an International Office in Egypt and the United Kingdom. The firm's familiarity with each region of the Kingdom is of special value in assuring the successful completion of the project, including the securing & evaluation of bids, overseeing procurement & managing and supervising construction. The De-centralized, flexible, structure of Saudconsult was created in response to the special demands of its vast operating area. Because business & development requirements vary significantly across the Kingdom. Saudconsult has established four operation centers, including the headquarters in Riyadh. Each regional center has a manager who has wide decision-making powers in his region. The individual project managers report to their respective managers. This decentralization allows much closer control over each project & assures that clients will receive quick responses to their needs.
It has also allowed the regional centres to develop groups of specialists with unique understandings of the needs & opportunities within their areas.
In addition, technical specialists in a wide range of fields reside at the Saudconsult headquarters in Riyadh. They are directed wherever & whenever their particular expertise is required, thus assuring quality control through all Saudconsult operations.
Though this combination of decentralized control, and concentrated technical strength, Saudconsult can deliver the skills, the services & the responsiveness that each client requires.
