Bouteflika To Launch Works Of Algiers Mosque Next November


President Abdelaziz Bouteflika is likely to inaugurate the commencement of the building of great mosque of Algiers as by next 1 November, which coincides with celebrations of the Liberation Revolution (1954-1962).



Head of the national agency for the building of the Djamaa El Dzajair (Algiers mosque), Mohamed Alloui, said the German company has accomplished the technical stage of the project.

Mr Alloui told Echorouk reporter that the outcome of the technical study has been checked by experts of the agency.

He added that he study has comprised the structure of the minaret, the praying hall, the related features and the pillars, noting that this religious complex will mix between the Mghreb-Islamic and modern architectures.

The agency is in permanent contact with the 6 local and foreign companies which have been preselected to compete for clinching the building of the project, before the opening of the bids next 17 July.

The project’s specifications stating that any candidate companies applying for the bid should have a permanent staff of more than 2,000 engineers, technicians and office staff. They should almost have an annual turnover of at least one billion.

The new law on public deals stipulates that companies attributed the building projects have to start construction works within a deadline of 90 days. Thus, the first stone of this Islamic project is likely to be put by President Bouteflika on next 1 November.

Situated at Mohammadia, opposite the bay of Algiers to the east of the capital, the mosque would stand on a site of about 20 hectares with a minaret standing about 270 metres high.

It will feature a main prayer hall large enough to hold 36,000 people. The complex will also include an inner court, an esplanade, a large auditorium, a library for 2,000 people, a school for Koranic studies, and an underground car park with space for 6,000 vehicles.

It will also feature a conference room, a Qur'an house, a centre for cultural sciences, media centres, a laboratory, a 300-room hotel, a shopping centre, restaurants, green spaces and a recreational park.

China to construct world’s third largest mosque in Algeria

Quote:
Tuesday, 28 February 2012

Algeria signed a deal with a Chinese construction giant on Tuesday for the building of a vast new one billion euro mosque that is expected to be the third largest in the world.

Religious Affairs Minister Bouabdallah Ghlamallah declared that the grand mosque which will overlook the seafront in the east of Algiers would be a “one-of-a-kind”.

“There will be nothing like it in the world -- religiously, touristically and economically,” he said as the deal was signed with China State Construction Engineering Corporation (CSCEC).

The mega mosque will sit on 20 hectares (49 acres) of land in the Mohammadia area of the capital, with its minaret soaring 270 meters (almost 900 feet) into the sky.

The one billion euro ($1.3-billion) house of worship will be able to 120,000 people and will also feature a library containing one million works and seating for 2,000, as well as a museum and a research center.

It will be the world's third largest mosque after those in Mecca and Medina in Saudi Arabia.

Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika “wants to leave his mark” through the building of the mosque, which will also become the fourth grand mosque in Algiers, Ghlamallah added.

“Work will start today after the signing of the contract and should be completed in 42 months,” the minister said.

The Chinese company, which has been in Algeria for the past 30 years and built the five largest hotels in the country, beat out a Lebanese-Italian concern and an Algerian-Spanish company for the contract.

CSCEC was one of four Chinese companies that were disbarred in 2009 from bidding for World Bank financed projects for periods ranging from five to eight years after a corruption investigation in the Philippines, according to a World Bank statement.

In the case of CSCEC the World Bank recommended that the exclusion period run until 2015.

Algiers currently has three grand mosques: Djamaa el-Kebir, built in the 11th century; Djamaa el-Djedid, built in 1660; and the Ketchaoua, at the foot of the Casbah, also built during the Ottoman rule in the 17th century.
