Government-backed Edamah is building Sa'ada in Bahrain.

Bahrain’s government-backed real estate developer, Edamah, aims to secure approval to issue a Phase 2 main construction works tender for its mixed-use project Sa’ada before the end 2019.

Stage 2 design work will start in Q1 2019, and the company, financed by sovereign wealth fund Mumtalakat, told Construction Week it plans to issue a Phase 2 tender in Q4.

Construction work will take approximately 12 months to complete after the main works package has been awarded. 

Like Phase 1 of Edamah, Phase 2's delivery will be a two-phased process. Phase 2 is planned to connect Muharraq’s old souk with the first section of Sa'ada, which is due to complete in Q4 2019.

Phase 2 comprises a multi-storey car park, retail and food and drink outlets, open plazas, and a revamped bus station and post office each.

Located in Muharraq, north-eastern Bahrain, Edamah hopes Sa'ada will become a destination linking the modernity of a marina with the area's heritage souk, both of which will be connected through a bridge.

Construction on Sa'ada started in Q1 2018, with the development now 20% complete.

Mohammed Jalal Contracting Company is the main contractor for Sa’ada Phase 1, while Gulf Engineering House is the main consultant and Aecom is the infrastructure consultant.
