Drake & Scull International has won a contract worth US $33 million (KD9 million) for the Boy Campus of the College of Basic Education in Kuwait.

The contract involves the provision of full mechanical, engineering and plumbing (MEP) services to the educational buildings which are located near Kuwait Jaber Al Ahmmed Stadium in Ardiya.

The total value of the project is $130 million.

The entire project calls for the design and construction of 15 three-storey buildings, which include educational facilities, learning resources, an administration building, recreational facilities and car parks.

"Some of the services provided by Drake & Scull include a central air conditioning and ventilation system, domestic water services, a drainage system, electrical power distribution and the telecommunication System," said Tawfiq Abu Soud, Drake & Scull's area director.

This is the second contract that Drake and Scull has been awarded from the Public Authority for Applied Education and Training (PAAET).

In 2006, the company won a three-year deal worth $30.8 million to carry out electromechanical works for a special training centre being built on the Shuwaikh campus of the College of Technological Studies.

Drake & Scull's other projects in Kuwait include the $4.7 million contract to install a HVAC system for the Special Forces Facility in Sulaibhia, which was awarded by the Kuwaiti Ministry of Interior in June last year.
