Drake & Scull’s Kuwait-based subsidiary has completed construction on Phase 1 of Sabah Al-Salem University.
The $54.5million project has been undertaken by Drake & Scull for Electrical Contracting (DSIK), and is set for handover before the end of the year.
DSIK is responsible for the construction, operation and maintenance of all MEP works at the site in Shadadiya, including the installation of fire alarm and HVAC systems, and low voltage work.
Additionally, DSIK is supplying, installing, testing, commissioning, and maintaining all electrical and mechanical works at the university's Colleges of Arts and of Education.
The campus recently welcomed the first batch of its students for the first semester of 2019-20 academic year, and has been inspected by Kuwait’s Minister of Education and Minister of Higher Education, Dr Hamed Al-Azmi.
Al-Azmi said that the opening of six facilities came in line with the plan of transition and operation by the higher council of the university, adding that other facilities were nearing completion.
