Drake & Scull wins Kuwait school contract

Drake & Scull International (DSI) has won the mechanical, electrical and plumbing contract for work at a major educational institution in Kuwait.

The AED218m (£38m) brings up DSI’s total project awards this year to AED1.57bn. The work will be carried out by Drake & Scull Engineering Kuwait.

Ahmad Al Naser, managing director of Drake & Scull Engineering (DSE), said: “Kuwait remains one of DSE’s most strategically important markets in the Middle East, as we have established a leading position in the country’s engineering sector. The contract for the education institution is a prestigious win which further cements our association with Kuwait’s education sector. The country’s non-oil economic sectors, including real estate, have benefited from the government’s ambitious investments, continuing to grow in the medium term. With a growth in non-oil segments and expansion of the consumer sector, the Kuwait real estate sector is currently enjoying a growth upswing and DSE is confident of capitalising on this forward momentum by securing more large-scale projects in Kuwait in the near term.”

DSI has been operating in Kuwait since 2004 and its ongoing projects include the College of Business, the College of Health & Sciences for Girls, Sheikh Saad Sports Complex, Government Center for Testing and Research and Al Sager Cardiac Clinic.
