Construction of Musanada-Seha's New Al Ain Hospital 89% complete
Major construction progress reported on site with 3,100 workers engaged in the building programme through six contracts
Abu Dhabi General Services Company (Musanada) said construction on its $1.2bn (AED4.4bn) New Al Ain Hospital – a project being implemented alongside Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (Seha) with a total built-up area of 34.7ha – was 89% complete.
Musanada said it had completed 99% of utility building works, 96% of main building work, 97% of electromechanical activities, and 89% of architectural work.
Concrete work for main and utility buildings, as well as the project’s steel structures, have been completed, and Musanada has also commissioned and handed over the project’s primary substation.
Commissioning work has started for 10 substations in collaboration with Al Ain Distribution Company, and initial commissioning and testing work has started for the new hospital’s systems, in line with its handover plan for Seha.
Solar panels have been installed on the rooftop of the project, and approximately 3,100 workers have been deployed through six contracts to build the project, on which ground broke in March 2014.
New Al Ain Hospital is one of Musanada’s projects to realise the vision of President HH Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan to provide high quality healthcare services in Abu Dhabi.
The project receives the follow up of HH Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, and is part of Musanada’s contribution to the achievement of Abu Dhabi Plan.
The new hospital will have 719 beds, including 510 beds for general medicine, surgery, children’s wards, and maternity and royal suites; 67 beds for intensive care; and 142 for medical rehabilitation.
New Al Ain Hospital also features a car parking facility accommodating up to 1,573 cars in two underground floors, in addition to external buildings such as an administration building, Al Ain Region Central Morgue, the utility building, the logistics building, and the primary substation, UAE state news agency, Wam, reported.
