King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology (“KACST”)
The BADIR Program Complex is a multi-disciplined business and technology incubator established to attract, engage and support Saudi entrepreneurs in the exploration and establishment of new businesses in four (4) technology sectors: Biotechnology, Advanced Manufacturing and Materials, Information & Communications Technology and Energy & Nanotechnology.
Unique in the world, this facility will house these four technologies under one 36,000 square meter facility. In addition to these specialized research laboratories, the headquarters of BADIR will have their offices within the same location. The design is to be sustainable, adhere to the KACST campus masterplan standards and provide inspirational and collaborative spaces for the future business leaders of Saudi Arabia.
Torus Design has assembled a Chicago and Dubai based design team to provide complete design and tendering services to KACST on behalf of BADIR.
The project is currently in the final design phase. Construction Tendering is scheduled for late 2015 and construction is scheduled for early 2016.
