Bahrain World Trade Center

Hello to all members

I am new to this forum as im sure you can see .I wish to broaden my knoweledge in my field of study by participating in future discussions dealing with large infrastructure.

I am a civil engineering student in South Africa.

I have been given an assignment in which i am asked to choose a building that I find most influencial, that has been constructed within the last ten years. I have chosen to research the Bahrain World Trade center.

It fills the criteria of the given question. Such criteria include: Asthetic appeal, Construction Health and Safety, Socio-economic Impact, Environmental impact, Cost effectiveness.

Most of the criteria is easily found on the internet, yet i am finding it difficult to research the cinstruction health and saftey on the site during construction. ie the safety precautions taken during the construction of the project. I am wondering if anyone has insight to this criterion?

My lecturer has posed such a question to emphasise the importance of saftey on large construction sites like this .

I have researched the other criteria but further information regarding the criteria( or other interesting facts about the structure) is greatly appreciated and is key in broadening my knoweledge and preforming well in the task given on hand

Thanking you in advance for time and effort
Jason
