Indian School Bahrain to start work on new campus
Manama, January 22, 2013
Indian School Bahrain will hold a ceremony to lay the foundation stone for its new BD2.5 million ($6.52 million) campus on Saturday.
The new state-of-the-art campus in West Riffa is being constructed as the contract for the school's Sitra campus expires by September this year, said a report in our sister publication, the Gulf Daily News.
The three-storey building covering 13,592 sq m will have six distinct blocks with modern facilities, including parking spaces for 203 cars and 50 buses.
The building will have CCTV surveillance with 102 classrooms, 15 lavatories, administration offices, computer and science labs, art room and a music room.
Saturday's event - coinciding with the Indian Republic Day - will kick off at 11am at the Riffa Sports Club in West Riffa.
The chief guests include Education Minister Dr Majid Al Nuaimi, Indian Ambassador Dr Mohan Kumar and Riffa Sports Club president Shaikh Abdulla bin Khalid Al Khalifa.
"The formalities have been completed conscientiously and scrupulously with necessary approvals and the contract has been finalised and awarded to Hisham Contracting. Al Jazeera Engineering is the consultant for the project," said school chairman Abraham John during a Press conference yesterday (January 21). – TradeArabia News Service
