Kuwait University has received bids for the contract to build, operate and manage two service stations and annexed buildings at the new Sabah al-Salem University campus in Kuwait.
The Central Tenders Committee (CTC) received bids from eight contractors on 4 January.
The local Mohammmed Abdulmoshin al-Kharafi & Sons submitted the low bid of KD74.9m ($265.5m) for the project. This was 14.1 per cent lower than the KD87.2m price submitted by the second lowest bidder, the local office of Athens-based Consolidated Contractors Company (CCC).
The local Khalid Ali al-Kharafi & Brothers submitted the third lowest bid with a price of KD93.7KD, and were followed by the local Burhan International Construction Company with a price of KD98.5m.
The project is the latest of a number of construction packages that have been tendered for the new $3bn Sabah al-Salem campus, which will be located at Shadadiyah, 20km west of Kuwait City.
The College of Science and Faculty Club will comprise three primary elements – a men’s campus, a women’s campus, and a faculty club. The separate male and female campuses will each comprise about six structures linked by bridges. The faculty club will be a single building located between the male and female sections, which will also be connected by bridges.
The winning contractor will build the main faculty buildings and a vehicular tunnel. The scope of works includes landscaping and the provision of irrigation systems (MEED 29:12:10).
