Metro Riyadh

Saudi Arabia

The first metro project in Saudi Arabia has been under construction in the capital Riyadh since 2014. The six lines will extend 178 km and there will be 85 stations. There will be elevated, ground-level and underground lines and stations.


  • stringent safety requirements across the entire project in all contract sections
  • structural changes are frequent, so the formwork solution has to be flexible
  • complex fair-faced concrete structures designed by famous architects
  • support has to be available right away and deliveries must be on time

Project solution:

  • optimised equipment inventory management and speedy deliveries based on detailed planning
  • increased site-crew productivity with the on-site support of a formwork instructor throughout the entire construction phase
  • fast progress with formwork solutions for the individual construction sections
