Red Sea Global awards facilities management contract for Turtle Bay
- El Seif Group to manage civic and business facilities at Turtle Bay set to house 14,000 employees
Riyadh, (23 June 2021): Red Sea Global (formerly know as TRSDC), the developer behind the world’s most ambitious regenerative tourism project, has awarded a contract to El Seif Group for facilities management services at The Red Sea destination’s Turtle Bay.
El Seif Group, based in the Middle East, will be responsible for delivering facilities management services to 18 residential buildings, 200 villas and townhouses, and the management office at the Turtle Bay, where 14,000 employees who will eventually operate the destination will live and work.
El Seif Group was selected due to its alignment with RSG’s environmental and social principles and will provide sustainable living for all residents of Turtle Bay. Both companies will collaborate to develop, tailor and enhance the quality of living for all.
Mr. Fahad El Seif, Vice Chairman, IFM “Integrated Facility Management", El Seif Group said “The size and scale of RSG’s Turtle Bay is incredibly ambitious and their commitment to go above and beyond existing employee welfare standards is impressive. Through our collaborative approach we intend to work closely with RSG to oversee the planning and implementation of services and protocols to ensure a high-quality service for every employee.”
The 1.5 million m² Turtle Bay area includes management offices, villas, townhouses and apartments, and a 144-room hotel. Envisaged as a vibrant community and set in a prime location on the waterfront, it will offer a range of amenities and leisure facilities including fitness centers, beach clubs and dining outlets, plus a hospital and school.
To minimize RSG’s environmental impact, the Turtle Bay uses the latest off-site manufacturing and prefabrication techniques to develop buildings, reducing the carbon footprint. RSG also uses eco-friendly, sustainable ‘green’ concrete on-site to minimize emissions throughout the construction process.
The Red Sea destination has already passed major milestones and work is on track to welcome the first guests by the end of 2022, when the international airport and the first hotels will open. Phase one, which includes 16 hotels in total, will complete in 2023.
Upon completion in 2030, The Red Sea destination will comprise 50 resorts, offering up to 8,000 hotel rooms and more than 1,000 residential properties across 22 islands and six inland sites. The destination will also include luxury marinas, golf courses, entertainment and leisure facilities.
