Rendeavour Appoints Skidmore, Owings & Merrill for New Abuja Project

Rendeavour, Africa's largest urban land developer, has appointed Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) for master planning services in connection with Jigna, Rendeavour's joint venture urban development project in Abuja.

With a track record including landmark projects such as One World Trade Centre in New York and the Hajj Terminal in Saudi Arabia, SOM will ensure that the firm's experience from these projects and others, such as the master plans for Phu My Hung Community in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, King Abdullah Economic City in Saudi Arabia and the Baietan Urban Design Master Plan in Guangzhou, China, will be brought to bear on Jigna.

"Jigna is a compelling project to address Abuja's continued urban growth with world-class aspirations," said Daniel Ringelstein, Director of Urban Design and Planning at SOM.
