Habtoor Leighton Group lands Medical Centre, Dubai

The contract for construction of the first phase of Dubai’s Fakeeh Academic Medical Centre has been awarded to Habtoor Leighton Group (HLG).

The contract has revenue of AED468m (£85m) and will be built at the free zone park at Dubai Silicon Oasis.

The medical facility will comprise five ‘centres of excellence’ that specialise in diabetes and endocrinology, muscles, bones and joints, emergency medicine, pulmonary medicine and cardiology. It will offer robotic surgery and feature an automated medication dispensing system.

Work includes the construction of the 150-bed ‘smart’ hospital and the installation of the medical equipment and the loose furniture. It covers the structural, architectural, civil, mechanical, plumbing and electrical works as well as final testing, commissioning and cleaning. The aim is for building to achieve the LEED Silver Certificate.

Project works will start immediately with completion expected in October 2017.
