Bahrain-based Nass Contracting, a subsidiary of Nass Corporation, has secured two joint venture projects worth a total of US $156.5 million (BD59 million). The first package includes infrastructure work on Durrat Al Bahrain, while the second deal involves construction of King Hamad General Hospital in Muharraq. The Durrat Al Bahrain contract is worth $25.7 million and covers phase one construction and rectification works on the project’s infrastructure. The contract will focus on Durrat Al Bahrain’s three islands — Petal One, Atoll One and Atoll Two — as well as the two bridges connecting Petal One with Atolls One and Two. The second project has been awarded by the Ministry of Works and Housing for the construction of the new King Hamad General Hospital in Muharraq, Bahrain. The contract is valued at $130.8 million. “We have won the first phase of the Durrat Al Bahrain project and mobilisation work has already begun, with completion expected by August next year,” said Roy Matthews, chief estimator, Nass Contracting. “Mobilisation on the second project has also begun with a 24-month finishing timeline, which means we should see its completion in September next year.” The work involves the construction of a four-storey hospital building, in a three-block configuration, separated by courtyards. Each block is connected to its neighbours via two parallel skywalks running from east to west. The contractor will also build a car park capable of accommodating 951 cars; a helipad on the second level, with direct access to the emergency department; and all associated civil and site works, from landscaping to connecting the hospital to the adjacent services infrastructure.
