18 December 2009

Winning bidder will build offices to serve the northern oil fields

Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) has received several bids from contractors for a contract to build an office complex serving the oil fields in northern Kuwait.

The local United Construction Company is the low bidder with a price of KD17.3m ($60m). The price is about 2 per cent lower than the bid of KD17.6m submitted by the local Sadeem al-Kuwait General Trading & Contracting Company.

The winning bidder will build an office complex and associated facilities in the Umm al-Aish area of northern Kuwait.

The project includes the construction of a two-storey main office building, a multi-purpose hall with cafeteria and kitchen building, a central plant and sub station, a clinic, mosque, covered car parking shelters, a sewage treatment plant, and access roads.

The entire complex will be fenced together with security gates and guard huts.
