Drake & Scull International (DSI), a regional market leader in integrated design, engineering and the construction disciplines of civil contracting, mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP), has clinched MEP contracts worth Dh112 million ($30.5 million) from Kuwait.
The company's Kuwaiti unit Drake and Scull Kuwait (DSK) has been awarded the MEP contract for a private residential development and the second college for Sabah Al-Salem University.
DSK had last year been awarded the MEP package for the first college for Sabah Al- Salem University valued at Dh200 million and has been eyeing projects across the residential, healthcare, education , waste water and water treatment sectors.
Commenting on the win, CEO Khaldoun Tabari said, "Kuwait remains a very important growth market for DSI and we are delighted to have been selected to execute the second college for Sabah Al- Salem University which is considered to be one of the iconic landmarks in the education sector across the region."
According to him, Kuwait is aggressively investing in hitech education facilities as part of a long-term commitment to enhance the literacy rate in the country and produce competent and highly skilled graduates.
"DSI aims to further capitalize on the government’s development strategy by providing advanced and tailored MEP solutions for the specific requirements of various types of educational facilities according to the most stringent quality and technical standards," he added.
DSI has been involved in numerous projects involving high-profile education facilities and has a strong reputation in providing state of the art MEP solutions to leading academic institutions in Kuwait, said Tabari.
Since its inception in 2004, DSK has been involved in some of Kuwait’s top engineering projects including the Special Training Centre for Public Authority for Applied Education and Training in Shuwaikh and the College of Basic Education- Boys Campus in Ardiya in addition to the Kuwait State Audit Bureau.
DSK also exclusively owns unique engineering technologies, especially in the MEP and Water and Power sectors, and enjoys close ties with governmental and private property developers, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
