Financial management is their essential function where the purpose is to evaluate performance, compare it to the budget, use the figures to inform management and look forward to trends and help remedy the causes.
Almabani's management looks at the Finance function to:
- Report on the company's essential financial information needs as they change, and to produce them on time to make business sense for the company.

As the complexity of its projects increased and the company established a major national presence, the need for a strong Legal Department became paramount. Almabani's Legal Department draws on the experience of a capable and talented team of lawyers. Their responsibilities are central to the group's successes. They are involved in all aspects of contract preparation from review of standard legal documents to negotiation of complex agreements with international outfits.
Almabani's areas of operation include turnkey projects, all aspects of civil construction and electrical & mechanical works. Almabani is also involved in architecture, interior finishing and construction management.
The company has an extensive number of projects to its credit. These include development of the Kingdom's infrastructure, construction of communication networks, construction of large housing projects, prestigious commercial and government buildings, interior refurbishment and decoration of palaces, building of power stations and construction of desalination plants.
It is standard practice at Almabani to apply rigorous value engineering techniques to every project, so as to derive the optimum options after thorough analyses of all aspects of design and construction. This, in turn, maximizes value and performance of the project to the clients' definitive advantage.
To achieve the above, Almabani is counting on its own Design and Engineering Department where most of the designs are carried out in-house by a talented team of specialized engineers and architects.
More and more Clients are expressing an interest to be involved in the various aspects of construction such as selection of subcontractors, procurement of material and services, and so forth. At the same time, they do not want to be burdened with the huge task of managing such sub-contractors or overseeing day-to-day operations and so on. Almabani has responded to this need by setting up a Construction Management Service entity.
Almabani's Construction Management Service entity makes sure that the client is aware of all the choices before him throughout the various stages of construction, from project planning, design and procurement to construction and final inspection services. Simultaneously, Almabani team manages the client's sub-contractors, controls quality and site safety, and drives the construction progress.
