Construction of the Princess Noura Bint Abderrahman University campus, consisting of 21 academic buildings, a hospital, a research centre, a library, 400 villas, 10 technical buildings. The Medical Centre (135,000m2 / 700 beds), because of its size and complexity, is a key building on the campus.

Reserved for women, this university will specialise in the health sector (medicine, dentistry, nursing care, etc.), as well as in the fields of human sciences, fine arts, foreign languages, management, economics, sciences and IT, etc.). The Princess Noura University is a new university campus occupying 1 million m2 and will accommodate 60,000 students.

The section managed by Oger International includes 6 buildings located in the "iconic" and medical zones and covers an area of 335,000m2.

The PNU hospital was designed to meet at least the current requirements of the region and allow teaching covering a maximum of medical specialises.

In particular, it is equipped with 7 surgery zones and offers medical care such as: non-invasive medicine, dialysis, IVF, obstetrics-gynaecology, intensive care units, paediatric care unit (including intensive care), cancerology centre, cardiology, scanner, IRM, etc.i

The hospital has protected network infrastructures connecting it to all the hospitals in the Kingdom"

The objective of the Research Centre (42,000m2) is to combine various disciplines (biology, chemistry, physics, IT, engineering) around biomedical research in a modern, safe environment.

The central library was designed around a central Atrium, which is the centrepiece of the building. This atrium comprises, in particular, a wide variety of glazing relating to different technologies. :

  • structured glass for the panoramic lifts
  • structured glass for decorative glazing forming "open books"
  • luminous glazing with LEDs incorporated (LED glass)
  • fireproof double glazing

This concept required the use of innovating techniques in terms of manufacture and installation to achieve a high technical and aesthetic level.

Specific system   

Pneumatic System
A pneumatic network has been installed between the different Departments. This network enables documents, samples or other objects to be distributed between the 32 wards throughout the hospital, and in particular with the central laboratory. The distribution is fast, secured and can be monitored in real time.

Week currents  

  • Nurse call

"The Nurse Call” installed in the PNU hospital is an integrated system which combines multiple interfaces:
- it enables the patient to call the medical team thanks to a telephone system and easy access to multiple interfaces via a bed command (television, curtains, position of the bed, lighting, etc.)
- it communicates with the medical team via a centralised system interfaced with the RTLS system.
- It is connected to the display system in the corridors which alerts the rest of the medical team.
This system improves the response of the medical staff and the comfort of the patient.

  • Child Abduction system

This system for preventing child abduction system has been installed in the paediatric and neonatal areas. The secured bracelets placed on the children are equipped with chips which on the one hand sound the alarm when the child leaves the area (by sending a signal and LED illumination on the bracelet) and on the other hand prevent the kidnapper from leaving the hospital by blocking the internal doors and the lifts.

  • RTLS

The RTLS (Real Time Location System), thanks to the triangulation of the existing WIFI terminals, enables any equipment or staff provided with a specific badge to be located. This system is combined with the Nurse Call to improve patient assistance and the protection of sensitive equipment.


The dome 40 m in diameter in the main hall required a planning and erection of special scaffolding for applying the ceramic covering throughout the surface.
