BK Gulf notches Dubai hospital win

BK Gulf has won a contract to supply m&e and operational systems for the University Hospital in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.

The company has been selected by Dubai Health Care City (pictured) as one of the main delivery partners for the hospital. The project is valued at 650 million dirhams (£89m), and work is scheduled to start on site in the third quarter of 2008 and is scheduled to complete in 2010.

BK Gulf is the mechanical and electrical contracting business within the Dutco Balfour Beatty Group, in which Balfour Beatty has a 49 per cent interest.

In addition, the Building Division of Dutco Balfour Beatty has secured a contract to construct a new Novotel Hotel complex in the Al Barsha district of Dubai.

The project, for a private developer, is valued at 840m dirhams (£115m). The project comprises three individual towers of 35 storeys constructed on a common nine storey basement and podium section.

Site preparation has been completed and the project is scheduled to start in the second quarter of 2008 and is expected be completed by the end of 2010.

Balfour Beatty chief executive, Ian Tyler, said: “These contract wins further demonstrate the strength of our business in the UAE. Balfour Beatty has been an established player in Dubai for more than 30 years.

“In that time, we have earned a strong reputation for the timely delivery of complex major projects such as these. We anticipate further awards in the near future that will support our continuing growth in the Middle East region.”
