Project status
Saudi Arabia / Office

KAFD is designed to become the largest financial centre in the Middle East and the headquarters of the Capital Market Authority, the Stock Exchange and the Commodity Market and for Financial Institutions and related service providers.

When complete, KAFD is expected to require 44,000 new office personnel and accommodate 12,000 residents. KAFD will consist of high-rise residential and office towers, residential villas, retail areas, 6 luxury hotels, community and cultural facilities and a convention & exhibition centre.

When operational the Envac systems will be capable of transporting 145 tonnes per day of mixed (wet/organic) waste and in doing so will significantly reduce carbon emissions by the reduction of on-road waste collection trucks, creating a clean, safe and sustainable development. The collection station will be the first in which 4 receiving systems are co-located in a single building.
