New sources mention that SAASCC will open in 2017

Quote:
The government is now concentrating on our cultural sites. We recently completed the Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmad Cultural Centre, which houses an opera center and different convention centers. By the middle of this year, we expect to open another cultural and scientific center, called Abdullah Al Salem Cultural Centre. By the end of this year, the Cultural Village is expected to be ready to open to the public. Many other projects are being planned, all focusing on culture. Many tourists visit Mubarakiya Souk when they come to Kuwait. The municipality that is responsible for this area has a plan to develop, enlarge, and renew the infrastructure within the souk.

The $770m Sheikh Jaber Al Ahmad Cultural Centre, a 214,000-sq-metre development that includes an opera house, theatre and conference facilities, opened to the public in October 2016, while the Abdullah Al Salem Cultural Centre and Cultural Village are both scheduled to launch in 2017.

Kuwait National Cultural District

Quote:
Al-Shaheed Park Museums are significant additions to the cultural landscape of Kuwait and are part of the Kuwait National Cultural District—a project in global and cultural stewardship initiated by the Al-Diwan Al-Amiri that is unprecedented in scale and scope in the region. In addition to the Habitat and Memorial Museums, the KNCD is comprised of:

Sheikh Jaber Al Ahmad Cultural Centre (SJACC)—a jewel-like theatre, performance, and educational platform that opened in October of 2016.

Sheikh Abdullah Al-Salem Cultural Centre—a cultural complex in the Al-Sha’ab area on the Western shore of Kuwait consisting of 6 museums which focus on natural history, science and technology, fine arts, Arabic and Islamic sciences, space and a theatre..

Al Salam Palace—being restored as a heritage museum telling the story of Kuwait through the lives of its 15 rulers.

Each of these projects focuses on its own unique set of disciplines and experiences which together support the mission of the Kuwait National Cultural District.

Creative projects are corner stone in Kuwait Vision '35
Quote:
Cultural, artistic and recreational projects are essential in "Kuwait Vision 2035" to promote cultural and cognitive sense of Kuwaiti citizen.

Continuing to be custodian of arts and culture, Kuwait took another step to solidify this reputation by constructing the Jaber Al-Ahmad Cultural Center (JACC), Sheikh Abdullah Al-Salem Cultural center as well as other artistic projects like Abdulhussein Abdulridha theatre and Al-Shaheed's (Martyr's) Park.

Let's get the people into museums!

Abdullah Al Salem will still be way more important given its museums.

As part of their current work on the Sheikh Abdullah Al Salam Cultural Centre in Kuwait – the largest museum project in the world – BECK have developed a web-based app to help them manage 60 specialist suppliers on four continents as they build four museums concurrently within what would seem an impossible timeframe.

The museum fit-out specialists, based in Surrey, are building a museum district, which consists of a natural history museum, a space museum, a science centre and the Museum of Arab Science, the latter being built by BECK MBI’s recently acquired fit-out specialist, The Hub. As part of this mega-project, BECK are also creating and manufacturing more than 2,000 exhibits, as everything from hot air balloons to animals, will be replicated. In the UK, museums pride themselves on their collections, which are their unique assets and selling points, and to build a new museum without a collection would be unthinkable but this is precisely what BECK are doing.

It is the scale of these projects and the revenue they generate that have established BECK as the largest museums fit out company in the world.

“I’ve been told it’s comparable to building the V&A and the Natural History Museum in one go in terms of exhibition space,” Graham Wakeford, BECK’s Group Director, says about the Sheikh Abdullah Al Salam Cultural Centre project.

For example, BECK recently completed the Ahmad Al Jaber Oil and Gas Museum (AAJ) in Kuwait. The AAJ project was on behalf of the Kuwait Oil Company, designed by Event Communications, and included a full fit-out to a new building. The museum explores the origins of oil from raw material to the modern day products we use in everyday life. It also serves as a positive memory surrounding the invasion and destruction of the oil wells during the First Gulf War and how the world came together to avert a greater international disaster.

“There are a number of unique elements that make up the project, including a 3D Holographic show, oil drop interactive, (six tonnes of simulated oil dropped into a tube in three seconds) and an extremely powerful film, produced by Graham English and Co which depicts the capping of the oil wells and includes an immersive pyrotechnic display. As any project, regardless of location, we had a dedicated team to deliver the project and an experienced site team on location.”

On international projects, there is a greater demand for technology, the use of more demanding and higher materials specifications, higher density of exhibits to floor space, the need for continuous communication on every level and the need for staff to be on location 100 per cent of the time.

This is illustrated at the Sheikh Abdullah Al Salam Cultural Centre where one small area is a live rain forest with soil, irrigation and newly planted trees (combined with specially manufactured scenically created trees and plants), which all back up to a one million litre aquarium with acrylic panels that are 500mm thick to contain the water.

“We have more than 150 multi-media requirements and about 20 films to be shot. Because of the climate there are only really two months that you can film in Kuwait – January and February – to get a good quality image. So, if you have a two-year project you have four months to do all your filming. If you miss that slot you delay the project for a year.”

In order to make this work BECK developed a web-based app, which allows their international client to monitor progress remotely as their 60 specialist suppliers over four continents provide live video, photos and weekly progress blogs that give the client vital statistics and the ability to monitor and visually see progress prior to its arrival on site.

“Our team is unique and holds more experience than anyone else, they are solution seeking and can generally solve any puzzle given time. We are not frightened, we happily embrace new challenges, we actively seek out tough projects where the task seems impossible at first.”

BECK also work with local contractors and labour, actively teaching them the unique skills to deliver a museum and enabling them to complete projects in the future and the team work flexi time to accommodate projects.

“We have a unique ability to bring the highest quality suppliers and specialists into each project regardless of their location or the project location, seamlessly integrating their skills to the project needs.”

The Hub are in the final stages of delivering the Museum of Arabic Science at the Sheikh Abdullah Al Salem Cultural Centre (SAASCC) in Kuwait. This 2,000 sq m exhibition has required The Hub to deliver all elements of the exhibition from contractor design to researching and procuring many of the objects. There have been numerous challenges to overcome on this prestigious project including the manufacture and installation of five scale models of world famous mosques suspended at high level above a 70sqm map of the world.

But with their own manufacturaing bases and skilled teams of craftspeople, UK fit-out companies can seemingly turn their hand to any task that's put in front of them. For example, the world's largest fit-out company, BECK, has recently built a rainforest for what is currently the world's biggest museum complex in Kuwait.

I did not expect the furnishing of museums to be difficult and it takes a lot of time, but with all of this time I'm sure we will see a world-class cultural museum that we are proud of

If its true then the delay is justified:

V&A is the Victoria and Albert Museum
