Eight compete for maintenance work

24 March 2006

Eight international consultants have submitted proposals for the contract to provide the Ministry of Public Works (MPW) with road maintenance support. They are Parsons Engineering, Parsons Brinckerhoff and Stanley Consultants, all of the US, Denmark's COWI, Australia's Snowy Mountains Engineering Corporation (SMEC) and Hyder Consulting, Halcrow and Atkins, all of the UK. Called the Kuwait integrated maintenance management system (KIMMS) evaluation, the 12-month contract involves an assessment of MPW's infrastructure network requirements, which includes more than 10,000 kilometres of roads, 250 bridges and more than 5,000 kilometres of stormwater drainage. In addition, the contract calls on the consultant to determine the requirements for upgrade and modification of different network application systems, including pavement and bridge management applications, right-of-way features, sanitary and stormwater management systems.

The contract also contains a 24-month option to supervise the implementation of the upgrade (MEED 3:3:06).
