Ashghal Signs Contracts Worth $275m For Six Health Projects In Qatar

Sep 05, 2018

Ashghal president Saad bin Ahmad Al-Muhannadi signed the agreements in the presence of Primary Health Care Corporation general manager assistant for administration and financial affairs Musallam Al-Nabit, officials from the Ministry of Public Health and contractors.

The new projects have been planned as part of the Qatar National Vision 2030. Ashghal has constructed 24 health buildings between 2004 and 2018.

Al-Muhannadi said that all contractors who have been awarded the new contracts are local contractors.

“This is in addition to the new projects, which include five health centres throughout the country, especially in the external areas such as Al-Mashaf and Al-Wakra South and Al-Khor.”

All criteria for the construction of the project have also been set by the Global Sustainability Assessment System (GSAS).

Operational and architectural considerations have been taken into account, which include using solar energy for in-house water heating; using natural sunlight through panoramic roof windows to save electricity; rational consumption of water inside and outside the building; growing green areas and landscapes around the facility; and preserving the environment during the implementation of the project.

Ashghal has won two Sustainability Awards (2016) in health and education facilities from the Gulf Organization for Research and Development (GORD), the first performance-based system in the MENA region
