Local contractor to build extension on Al-Wasl road

Dubai’s Al-Sahel Contracting Company has won an estimated AED200m ($54m) contract to build an extension to the Iranian Hospital in the city.

The Iranian Hospital wants to build an extension next to the existing hospital building on Al-Wasl road (MEED 7:5:09).

The built-up area of the extension will be about 62,000 square metres and will take two years to complete.

Dubai-based Schuester Pechtold & Partners is the consultant.

Dubai Health Authority is also tendering a contract to build its Al-Jalila Children’s Specialty Hospital.

The authority plans to build the 200-bed hospital adjacent to the Al-Wasl Hospital, close to Dubai Creek on Oud Metha road.

The hospital will have medical wards, surgeries, a 370-seat auditorium, underground parking for 200 cars and outside parking for 270 cars.

The total built-up area is 105,000 square metres.

Its facilities include units for mental health, rehabilitation, oncology, nephrology and a heart centre.

The UAE is working on several other hospital projects.

In Abu Dhabi, government-controlled investment vehicle Mubadala Development Company has received technical proposals to build the Cleveland Clinic and is preparing to issue tender documents for a contract to build Tawam Hospital in Al-Ain.

In April, the Public Works Ministry awarded the local MCM Group a AED800m contract to build the Sheikh Khalifa Specialist Hospital in the emirate of Ras al-Khaimah.
