SSH, one of the leading master planning, infrastructure, building design, construction supervision and project management firms in the Middle East, has unveiled the design for a new children’s hospital at Al Shuwaikh region of Kuwait.
The newest tertiary children’s hospital will be the largest of its kind in the world featuring a total of 792 beds that will suit all medical needs and methods of treatment. The 300,000-sq-m facility will be located within the Al Sabah Specialty Medical Area in Al Shuwaikh.
A leading player in the construction sector, SSH boasts a reputation for design integrity and a portfolio that includes landmark projects throughout the region.
The company had last year been appointed by Kuwait’s Ministry of Health and Ministry of Public Works to provide a study and design for the hospital on a design-award-construct basis. Global architects HKS and engineering firm WSP are also involved in the project.
The Kuwait Ministry of Public Works for the first time unravelled the new design for the giant hospital project at Arab Health Conference being held in Dubai.
The unique design concept has been delivered with a futuristic hospital design theme, comprising innovative and functional design that incorporates state-of-the-art technology and energy conservation.
According to SSH, the Kuwait Children’s Hospital will be built using the highest standards of construction, materials and equipment. The hospital will provide a welcoming, comfortable, stress-free and home-like environment for its patients and their respective families.
