Abu Dhabi tenders special security hospital
Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (Seha) has invited firms to bid by 16 June for the contract to build a special security hospital in Abu Dhabi.
The 125-bed hospital will be built in the Shamkha development of the emirate and will have a built-up area of 32,000 square metres.
US-based Hill International is the project manager for the hospital, which is part of Seha’s plans to overhaul the healthcare sector in Abu Dhabi. It’s investment plans include major new hospitals such as those planned for Al-Ain and Mafraq, together with smaller hospitals and clinics.
In early March, Seha awarded the local/Australian Al-Habtoor Leighton Group and South Africa’s Murray & Roberts Contractors (Middle East) the estimated $800m construction contract for Mafraq Hospital in Abu Dhabi emirate.
Mafraq hospital will have 690 beds. US based Burt Hill is the design consultant. US-based Allen & Shariff Corporation is the project manager.
Seha selected the joint venture of the local Al-Shafar General Contracting and the local National Projects Construction with Japan’s Shimizu Corporation for the estimated AED 2.6bn ($708m) contract to build Al-Ain hospital last year but no award has been made.
