$16m Bahrain dialysis centre project on track

Work on the Dialysis Center Project located at Hunainiya in the Southern Governorate of Bahrain, is progressing as per schedule with about 35 per cent of the project completed.

This comes as part of the efforts of Ministry of Works, Municipalities Affairs & Urban Planning to implement various projects that support services provided to citizens on various levels, said its top official.

The BD6.1 million ($16 million) project is being funded by the Saudi Development Fund as part of the Gulf Development Programme. The project tender was earlier awarded to Aradus Contracting & Maintenance, said the Works Affairs undersecretary Ahmed Al Khayyat.

The government, he stated, has allocated a 21,550 sq m land, while the construction area extends on an area of 8,854 sq m. The main building comprises two levels with a capacity to accommodate 60 beds. 

Presently, work is underway to complete the constructional structure for the main building, the sub-power station, the services building and the external works on site.

The ground level contains a reception and registration hall, six external clinics, treatment rooms, labs, a pharmacy, X-Ray department, waiting areas, rooms for the nursing team and a central store, while the first level includes three wings for peritoneal dialysis and blood wash, an isolation wing, a fluid purification station for the fluids used in dialysis and a repair workshop.

In addition to this, the facility also houses the administrative offices and public utilities such as toilets, sub-power station, a guard room and external fence. A parking lot is also provided, with the capacity to accommodate 232 vehicles.

The project design also takes into account all the necessary facilitations needed for patients and visitors with special needs, which include the provision of parking spaces and slopes close to all entrances, in addition to providing an elevator close to all entrances and rest rooms that accommodate the needs of the disabled, explained Al Khayyat. 

The project has also taken into consideration the best green buildings practices, which the government and the ministry are keen to apply to all construction projects, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
