South Al-Mutlaa City is the largest housing project in Kuwait with 28363 units, currently being executed in cooperation with international experts.
By the end of last June, the Public Authority for Housing Welfare (PAHW) has signed a contract of about KD 288 million with the Italian Salini Costruttori engineering company and Turkey's Kolin group to build the city's infrastructure.
The project will also see the floating of 60 tenders for construction including public utilities and power plants.
The authority also signed a five-year contract worth about KD 23.5 million with the US Hill International, the global leader in managing construction risk, to provide program management consultancy services during the development of the project.
The contract involves ensuring the completion on the project on the specified date, evaluating contractors and consultants and training Kuwaiti employees at PAHW on running projects and contracts.
