The work will involve the construction of two new laboratory buildings alongside the existing laboratory. The contract will also include the supply and installation of R&D equipment.

The seven bidders for the contract are: Saudi Binladin Group, Saudi Oger, Nesma & Alfadland El-Seif Engineering Contracting, all local, the local/Lebanese Almabani General Contractors Company, and Consolidated Contractors International Companyand Joannou & Paraskevaides, both Athens-based.
