Abu Dhabi extends Al-Ain hospital closing date

08 November 2011

Contract was first tendered in 2010

Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (Seha) has extended the tender closing date to 15 December for the contract to build an estimated AED2.6bn ($708m) hospital in Al-Ain.

The previous closing date of 15 October was set when the companies reissued tender documents in August this year (MEED 26:8:11).

Seha first tendered the contract in 2010 and had selected the joint venture of the local Al-Shafar General Contracting and the local National Projects Construction (NPC) with Japan’s Shimizu Corporation for the works (MEED 3:12:10).

The contract involves building a 688-bed hospital. It will cover 358,000 square metres, with underground parking for 1,500 cars. The design has been prepared by a joint venture of Switzerland’s ICME Healthcare, Germany’s Faust Consult Architects & Engineers and Obermeyer Engineering Consulting, also of Germany.
