The Rashid Engineering office was established by Dr. Nasser Al-Rashid on 26/4/1393 (Hijri), which corresponds to 29/5/1973 (Gregorian), to provide architectural and engineering design, surveying ,and project management services.

The office employs a highly qualified team of local and multinational engineers who have extensive experience in their respective disciplines, including architectural, civil, structural, electrical, and mechanical engineering. In line with the national policy towards Saudization, the office was able to increase the employment of Saudi nationals by up to about 22%. In its business practice, the office builds on the Islamic culture by taking into account the authentic Saudi traditions and customs, and by using the most-up-to-date technologies and keeping abreast with overall developments taking place in the Kingdom, at all levels, and effectively contributing to the development of modern architectural buildings.

The first project which was designed and supervised by the office was Al-Khalidiah building at Khazzan Street in Riyadh, which belongs to the sons of the late King Khalid, and the first government project was the Al-Massara Hotel at Taif, which was fast-tracked and constructed within a record time of eight months, pursuant to the order of the late King Khalid.

 

 

Many important projects were designed and supervised by the office including: Royal courts and palaces, guest houses, conference halls, government buildings, hospitals, hotels and housing compounds all over the Kingdom. Many highways, bridges, and mountainous tunnels were also designed and supervised by the office throughout the Kingdom
