Public Works Ministry receives 18 bids for hospital

The Public Works Ministry has received bids for a contract to expand the Al-Qassimi Hospital in Sharjah.

The low bidder is the local Ali-Moosa General Contracting with a price of AED329m ($90m). Three other bidders submitted offers below AED400m. They are the local Al-Sahel Contracting Company at AED370m, the local Aswar Engineering at AED379m, and the local MCM Group with Beijing-based China State Construction & Engineering Corporation at AED380m.

Fourteen other companies submitted bids ranging from AED415m to AED577m.

The project involves building a new maternity hospital, emergency department, new entrance, a central utilities building, a cooling tower, a new car park and a helipad.

In April last year, the Public Works Ministry awarded the MCM/China State joint venture a AED800m contract to build the Sheikh Khalifa Specialist Hospital in the emirate of Ras al-Khaimah (MEED 23:4:09).
