Geotechnical firm recently awarded £50m package on controversial NEOM project. Keller is preparing for work on its first major contract on NEOM, a $500bn new city set to be built on the coast of Saudi Arabia. The ground engineering contractor released its half-year results today, which demonstrated strong growth and highlighted NEOM’s “potential to generate contract revenue in the hundreds of millions of pounds in future years”.
Keller is one of a small number of geotechnical firms working on THE LINE, which is NEOM’s first development and is comprised of two horizontal skyscrapers, each 170km long.
