Despite a somewhat tumultuous couple of years for Saudi Binladin Group (SBG), its chairman, Bakr Bin Laden, continues to be a notable and influential name within the GCC’s construction sector.

One of the group’s most high-profile projects is the Grand Mosque extension project in the kingdom. The contractor, according to intelligence platform ProTenders, is also working on Al Barsha Traffic Management Centre in Dubai.

This five-storey facility will include emergency operations and maintenance office spaces, as well as infrastructure facilities, parking facilities, civil works, associated facilities, and the installation of equipment safety and security systems.

According to ProTenders, the group’s public buildings and airports division is one of its most active, having undertaken projects ranging from roads and bridges to airports, hospitals, and universities, as well as large housing projects, residential and commercial buildings, and high-rise towers.
