Now, having completed the design with advisors from the UK's National History Museum and Eden Project, KAIG is to be put out to project tender.
KAIG's design, which won the overall global leisure category for commercial property at the International Property Awards, features a 10-hectare building which will house the world's largest indoor garden -- the size of 15 football pitches or five Eden Projects.
KAIG will be set within a 160 hectare site in the arid desert of the Saudi central region and, as a cornerstone of Riyadh's growth plans, will provide a new destination for Saudis and international visitors.
KAIG will also feature an array of specialist tensile, pneumatic and grid shell structures -- all designed by the world's leading specialist engineers using state-of-the art modeling tools.
The British team is also responsible for the design of KAIG's infrastructure including earthworks, roads, footpaths, coach and car parks, an energy center, sewerage treatment systems and services (including electricity, telecoms, gas and water).
