SAUDI ARABIA - 21 NEW TOWNS

A planning team of independent consultants was set up in early 1982 for the Ministry of Interior Housing Project, Saudi Arabia. The team was lead by Dennis Burr and included Francis Tibbald, the then President of the R.T.P.I. The

commission involved approximately 12,000 housing units and associated facilities on 21 sites. The project was undertaken on a fast-track basis, and all design work was completed within 18 months.
