King Hamad general Hospital is located at Busaiteen, Muharraq. The client is the Ministry of Health and the Client Facilitator is the Ministry of Works and Housing. The site for the hospital is located on reclaimed land adjacent to the road between the airport and Manama and has close proximity to the sea with a good sea view.
The Australian Hospital Design Group (AHDG) is the Consultant team responsible for the design of the $130 million building and comprises CS+T Architects Pty Ltd., Connell Mott MacDonald Engineers, Davis Langdon Australia Quantity Surveyors, Denton Corker Marshall Design Architects and Ismail Khonji Associates Engineers.
The main Contract is undertaken as a joint venture between Bahrain’s Nass Contracting and the Burhan International Construction Company of Kuwait while the Mechanical and Electrical Services Contract is jointly held by EMCO and Nass Electrical.
Winning the Mechanical and Electrical works reflects the industry’s confidence and regard for the quality and reliability of our work.
The main plant area is at the eastern end of the hospital, arranged around the level 1 Service yard. A Ministry of Electricity and Water (MOEW) 66kV District Sub-station will be separately constructed in an enclosure opening off the Service yard.
