Umm al-Qura University is a 3,500 acre site with a population of about 25,000. There are multiple buildings with a vast infrastucture to support the site including transport of both auto and foot traffic to and around the site, distribution of potable water, electricity, and telecommunications, and treatment of sewage.

TERRA Engineering designed a complete stadium along with a track and field for this University. TERRA also produced a comprehensive facilities management (FM) and geographic information system (GIS), known as an FM/GIS. This was used to model complex relationships between the built and natural environments.
