Gillespies experience in the Kingdom

Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 provides the blueprint for the development of a nation moving away from a dependency upon exporting oil into a fully diversified and balanced economy. More than that, it enshrines three themes: a vibrant society, a thriving economy and an ambitious nation with a transformative societal agenda.

Each of our projects, whether it be a regional tourism Masterplan covering thousands of kilometres or Landscape and Public Realm designs for iconic projects, is set within this context and seeks to make a contribution.

Building upon the experience of landmark projects such as the Masterplanning of Medina and Jeddah City Centre Public Realm Streetscapes a decade ago, the firm has been working across a multitude of ambitious projects simultaneously, including nine of the Giga projects over the last five years.
