Construction on Dubai's Zayed Dialysis Centre nearly 36% complete
The concrete structure is 98% complete, while the exterior and interior claddings and electromechanical works are in progress
Construction work is rapidly progressing on Zayed Dialysis Centre, located in Dubai’s Al-Twar 3 area, with the Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department in Dubai (IACAD) having announced that the project is nearly 36% complete.
The project has been implemented as a joint venture between IACAD and Dubai Health Authority (DHA), Awqaf and Minors Affairs Foundation. Dar Al Ber Society, Beit Al Khair Society, and Dubai Charity Association have provided support for the project, alongside Dubai Islamic Bank and Noor Bank.
A construction contract of $10m (AED36.818m) was awarded last year. The design and construction of the centre expected to be completed within 18 months from the date of signing the contract.
According to IACAD, the project, construction on which commenced on 21 July 2019, will be completed in 225 days and will be finalised in September 2020. 30% of the centre capacity, which is about 40 beds, will be allocated to cases from contributing charities and will be provided free treatment.
Construction work including the substructure has been completed, while all of the equipment of the supervision offices has been acquired. Additionally, 98% of the concrete structure has been completed. Meanwhile, the exterior and interior claddings and electromechanical works are in progress.
The project has been implemented in line with the IACAD’s commitment to Article No. 09 of the 50-Year-Charter launched by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
In addition a dialysis unit will be built outside the hospital, which will be a licenced medical facility t to help patients who require dialysis services regularly.
