The South Sabah Al Ahmad project is taking shape 80km south of the capital
Kuwait’s Public Authority for Housing Welfare (PAHW) has awarded a $367mn contract to Kuwait Arab Contractors for an infrastructure services contract for the South Sabah Al Ahmad City project.
The PAHW said that a total of 14 companies had expressed their interest in the project but Kuwait Arab Contractors emerged the winner with the lowest bid, according to a report by Arab Times.
The scope of work includes construction, completion and maintenance of main road works for the South Sabah Al Ahmad City, as well as provision of infrastructure services and setting up of rainwater tanks. The entire project work will be completed within the next three years, the report explained.
In mid December 2022, CDE said it would supply wet processing equipment for a major land remediation effort in Kuwait and, in mid January 2023, Kuwait’s PART issued consultancy services tenders for Phase One of its railway network.
The South Sabah Al Ahmad project is taking shape 80km south of the capital, Kuwait City. The 61.5sqkm city features ten neighbourhood clusters arranged around the city’s central business district, and will be bordered by a ring of light industrial buildings.
Set to be the urban core for the country’s southern sub-region, the city will be home to an estimated 280,000 residents, while creating 145,000 jobs in a diverse range of industries including construction, medicine, manufacturing and culture.
It will also boast extensive green open spaces and multi-layered public transport systems that promote wellbeing and sustainability, the report concluded.
In late March 2023, Egis said it would provide PMC services for the Al Mutlaa City Development in Kuwait.
