• Ashghal seeks contractors for 250-bed hospital
  • Scheme involves building a 62,000-square-metre healthcare facility
  • Authority is planning more healthcare projects over coming years

Qatar’s Public Works Authority (Ashghal) has invited contractors to express interest by 21 June in building a 250-bed hospital next to Qatar University.

The project involves constructing a four-storey building with a built-up area of about 62,000 square metres and a four-level car park with 1,200 spaces and a built-up area of about 41,000 square metres.

Once complete, the new facility will deliver an advanced mix of medical services for secondary and tertiary care. Services will include internal medicine, paediatrics, obstetrics, gynaecology, general surgery, cardiology, bariatric surgery, orthopaedics and long-term care.

Once Ashghal has received expressions of interest, it will issue the prequalification documents.

In July 2014, MEED reported that firms had been invited to prequalify for contracts to provide project and construction management consultancy services on selected healthcare projects in Qatar over the next three years.
