  • Development of Office Buildings in Jeddah

    buildings

    Favorite thing: The rise of office buildings:
    The idea of finding a place confined to office work has existed long ago. Such places were a number of rooms attached to King's or Sultan's Palaces used for the registration and recording of properties and money as well as for following up the affairs of the state. With the urban development, and the diversity of business in the state these jobs were separated and transferred into new independent buildings. Meanwhile in early Arabian State, these rooms were built adjacent to major mosques as well as to the palaces of the caliphs and rulers.

    buildings

    Favorite thing: The city center hence became a point of attraction for business activities due to availability of service facilities like post offices, banks, lawyers, suppliers, advertising agencies, clubs and restaurants which were only few steps away. This diversified environment also helped businessmen to exchange ideas and information with the customers owing to their continuous presence in the city center. The existence of a number of companies, agencies and establishments under one roof or n nearby buildings has boosted commercial business, where new concepts flourished in fertile soil.

  • Development of Office Buildings in Jeddah

    buildings

    Favorite thing: The above aspects encouraged the construction of huge office buildings to absorb the great rush for the city centers. Moreover, the limited small areas of lands available in city centers led to the construction of high buildings without conversion to nearby streets and using new system exclusively to upper stories since buildings in those times depended on natural sunlight and ventilation.

    buildings

    Favorite thing: After the expansion of highway networks and the resulting growth of cities outskirts, population gatherings around the cities desired to attract investments by means of providing flexible laws of building construction which encouraged the transfer of some business to the outskirts. This was followed by availability of car parks exclusively for commercial office buildings (office parks). With easy parking and wider streets, workers and employers were able to reside near their jobs.

    Favorite thing: The hike in oil prices created a concern about power consumption and how to minimize operational costs of the buildings. Heat insulators and combined fixed glass windows were introduced. The surface area of the building outer cover was reduced to save more power.
