A construction tender has just been launched for the massive $1.2bn King Khalid Medical City (KKMC) project in Dammam, Saudi Arabia, lead consultant Aecom told CW.

The  tender was floated as an “invitation only” by Ministry of Health of Saudi Arabia, while a bidder's information session was held in Riyadh on 20 May, an Aecom spokesman said.

KKMC is the largest of four hospital developments planned for Saudi Arabia that have been initiated by a royal decree from King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia.

The 700,000m² campus will house a 1,500 bed hospital, a research centre, staff accommodations, a conference centre and an administration office building. Plans also include the potential for future educational facilities, a commercial complex and a hotel.

The project team comprises the owner - King Khalid Mega Project Management Office (PMO); Aecom (providing a complete single point solution from concept development through to tender documentation with services including masterplanning; architecture; landscape; interior design; MEP, civil and structural engineering; cost consultancy; medical equipment planning and traffic engineering) and Vanir Construction Management.

The anticipated completion date of the hospital is 2018.
