Drake & Scull International’s Kuwaiti subsidiary, Drake & Scull for Electrical Contracting (DSI Kuwait), has successfully completed major engineering and construction projects on the country’s Sheikh Saad Al-Abdullah Al-Salem Al-Sabah Indoor Sports Complex and Sabah Al-Salem University City.
Under the terms of its $19.3million electromechanical engineering contract with the Sheikh Saad Al-Abdullah Al-Salem Al-Sabah Indoor Sports Complex, DSI Kuwait was responsible for supplying, installing and connecting fire alarms and sprinklers; HVAC; telephones, internet and satellites; and a state-of-the-art scoreboard.
The Sheikh Saad Al-Abdullah Al-Salem Al-Sabah Indoor Sports Complex was officially inaugurated on 16 January during the opening ceremony of the 19th Asian Men's Handball Championship, supported and attended by His Highness Sheikh Sabah Khalid Al-Hamad Al-Sabah, Prime Minister of Kuwait.
On 29 January, DSI Kuwait completed the final phase of its $54.5m contract initiated in 2019 on Sabah Al-Salem University’s College of Arts and Education.
