Commissioned to produce Earthworks, Road Design and to create a 3-D landform model for master planning. Other services included utility coordination and geo-technical studies. Due to the extremely high number of Muslims that visit the Al Haram, be it for the annual pilgrimage to the Holy Mosque (during Ramadan) or simply daily prayer, there has become a need for long-term accommodation in the adjacent mountains.  Khandama, with a prime location looking down onto the Mosque, is ideal for both visitors and investors.
