CMCS to develop major deal with Sofcon Group
Saudi Arabia: Collaboration, Management and Control Solutions (CMCS) - Saudi Arabia has signed an agreement with Sofcon Group to offer project management solutions and services to all Sofcon’s projects in the region.
Sofcon is one of the fastest growing multi-disciplined engineering and project management (E&PM) providers in the Middle East.
Under the multi-million Saudi Riyal deal, CMCS will carry out project management maturity assessment, professional project management development, and Oracle Primavera project management software and collaboration software installation, training and implementation, among other key services.
Sofcon is enhancing its project management capacity as part of a broader E&PM efficiency buildup in preparation for a projected annual growth rate of 3.5 per cent in the Middle East construction sector. In the Gulf, almost 70 per cent of registered projects are still ongoing, with active civil building developments alone worth over $1.3 trillion, according to a statement.
When we outlined our goals for our E&PM growth strategy we identified PM as a critical area for expansion. After considering some of the region’s top PM experts we decided that CMCS’s ISO-certified approach to PM solutions was the best fit for our vision.
