Project Declared National Winner in Sustainable Category

Riyadh-Saudi Arabia: 08 May, 2013 – Schneider Electric, the global specialist in energy management, today announced the King Saud University (KSU) Girls' Campus project has been shortlisted in the ‘GCC Sustainable Project of the Year' category of the MEED Quality Awards for Projects, which is held in association with Ernst & Young for 2013.

The KSU Girls' Campus project was also named the National Winner in Saudi Arabia by the MEED Quality Awards for Projects, for its design, architecture, engineering and construction excellence.

Schneider Electric's work with KSU extends beyond traditional hardware and software solutions and seeks to help increase the capacity of the campus to accommodate over 20,000 female students across 12 colleges. The partnership also creates funding for research and development in KSU, which will contribute to growing the qualified workforce in Saudi Arabia by 15,000 people per year.

Christophe Campagne - Country President, Schneider Electric Saudi Arabia said: “We seek to support the development of the national economy through the provision of strategic higher education programs and facilities. Reflecting this commitment, our work with the King Saud University Girls' Campus enables the delivery of the critical educational infrastructure that will foster students who will ultimately contribute to the formation of a knowledge-based economy in the nation. The win of the national title and the GCC nomination for the MEED Quality Awards for Projects further highlights our philosophy of positively impacting the environment we work in.”

As part of its efforts to drive knowledge development in Saudi Arabia, Schneider Electric registered 1,035 new users during 2012 on its educational Energy University platform. The initiative offers 150 online courses in energy efficiency and data center management focusing on infrastructure, industry, buildings, residential, as well as data centers and networks.

A first-of-its-kind awards platform in the region, the MEED Quality Awards for Projects are designed to recognise and reward best practice and quality in construction projects throughout the GCC. The merit-based awards are judged by an esteemed panel of judges, comprising respected experts in the GCC projects industry.

Edmund O'Sullivan, Chairman of the MEED Quality Awards for projects, said: “Schneider Electric's KSU Girls' Campus project has been selected as the national winner in the ‘Sustainable Project of the Year' category by our expert judges from the Society of Engineers of Saudi Arabia. The win validates the effectiveness of the technology deployed.”

The KSU Girl's Campus Project will compete at the GCC level against national winners from the other GCC countries to win the ‘GCC Sustainable Project of the Year' award. The winner will be announced on 14 May 2013, at a gala awards ceremony at the Jumeirah by Etihad Towers, Abu Dhabi.
