Our first Saudi commission was Burj Rafal, a mixed-use - 70 storey tower that was the tallest occupied tower in Riyadh on completion and the first high-rise residential tower in the city. The lower 25 floors of the tower are occupied by a 5 star Hotel with service apartments. The podium includes a large ballroom, restaurants, fitness centre and adjacent - pool deck, playground, squash and tennis courts. The podium also contains a boutique luxury retail. The upper stories contains apartments, duplexes and a resident’s club on the top floor with pool, gym and lounge. This project was another landmark in P&T’s long history. P&T has also undertaken work on a number of other projects in the country including work the on the Security Forces Medical Centre Hospital projects in Riyadh and Jeddah, providing our creative design and technical delivery expertise to our clients. P&T’s is currently active within the Kingdom include- on the hospitality projects in Al Madinah Al Munawwarah.
