RIYADH, 6 December 2022: ROSHN, Saudi Arabia’s leading real estate developer, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Autodesk, the global leader in building information modeling (BIM) aimed at boosting its architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) capabilities. According to the agreement, the two companies will collaborate in mutually beneficial areas and deploy cutting-edge BIM technology to ROSHN’s ecosystem of contractors, consultants and vendors.

“ROSHN is spearheading the development of the domestic real estate and construction industry, deploying the highest quality of standards, practices, and technologies in the Saudi market. By combining our expertise with the knowledge and skill set of world renowned partners like Autodesk, we are able to bring the best possible solutions to our customers, at scale, across the nation,” said David Grover, Group CEO of ROSHN.

BIM technology allows users to explore the planning, construction, and management of buildings and construction sites virtually, allowing planners to make better-informed decisions regarding the disposal of resources. Under the terms of the agreement, ROSHN business units and contractors will be encouraged to use Autodesk’s software as they develop ROSHN communities across the Kingdom. The two parties will also work together on a wide range of initiatives, including developing technical enablement frameworks, establishing educational events and services, providing commercial offerings on Autodesk software, and forming strategic partnerships within the domestic AEC sector.

The broad scope of the agreement will allow ROSHN to play a leading role in the development of Saudi Arabia’s local AEC arena, introducing new technologies and driving the uptake of international standards and best practices. Since its inception, the company has spearheaded the maturation of the Kingdom’s construction sector, forging partnerships with industry leaders in areas as diverse as cutting-edge modular construction techniques to digtally-empowered irrigation technology.

United States-headquartered Autodesk offers market-leading software products in the field of architecture, engineering, construction, manufacturing, media, education and entertainment industries. Founded in 1982, the company achieved global prominence through its AutCAD platform, and now produces a broad array of software solutions, including the popular Revit line of BIM applications.

ROSHN is a national real estate developer, powered by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund (PIF). It has a mandate to deliver high-quality living standards to Saudis and support government efforts to increase rates of home ownership. ROSHN builds communities that look both to Saudi heritage and the evolving aspirations of the Saudi people, acting as the master developer, property developer and operator across a broad range of asset classes and land uses, including residential, retail, commercial, hospitality and public/civic facilities. Since the opening of its first community in Riyadh, SEDRA, it has gone on to launch ALAROUS in Jeddah and is building further communities across the Kingdom, including in Al Kharj, Al Hofuf, Al Qatif, Makkah, and Abha.
