The region’s leading wayfinding and signage expert, limah Design Consultants, has been appointed to develop a unified street naming, numbering and address system for the ‘Economic Cities’ development in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
The Economic Cities are designed to attract more domestic and foreign investment to increase the non-oil economy in Saudi Arabia, and as such the efficiency provided by limah’s services are key.
limah’s team of designers are experts in making complex spaces more efficient through wayfinding and signage, the use of public art, as well as industrial and communication design.
The address system will be based on local and international standards, as well as local culture and the site and architecture itself, to create an efficient, welcoming and caring environment for residents and visitors.
Four of the six Economic Cities are currently under construction: King Abdullah Economic City (KAEC), Prince Abdul Aziz bin Mousaed Economic City (PABMEC), Knowledge Economic City (KEC), and Jazan Economic City (JEC). The Economic Cities project is expected to be completed by mid-2013.
