SMEC Wins Project Management Contract for New University City in Kuwait
31 January 2006
SMEC (Snowy Mountains Engineering Corporation) and local company KEO International have recently overcome stiff international competition to win a prestigious building project management contract in Kuwait. This project also offers excellent prospects for future extensions and variations over a 10 year period.
The project involves construction of a new University City that will provide a modern campus with state of the art facilities for academic staff, students and other employees of Kuwait University. The Government of Kuwait has allocated 520 hectares of land in the Al Shadidiyah area for the project. The new campus with be co-educational with segregated facilities. It will include several faculties, dormitories, sports facilities and auditoriums as well as car parks for several thousand vehicles. There will also be a medical school and an associated 400-bed teaching hospital. The university city will be developed in stages over ten years and will eventually accommodate up to 40,000 students, permitting the consolidation of Kuwait University’s various existing campuses around the city.
This is a major development for Kuwait University which was established in 1966 and currently has around 19,000 students. The university plays a pivotal role in Kuwait’s strategy of developing a knowledge-based economy to sustain the country during the post-war Gulf redevelopment.
The role of SMEC and KEO is the provision of comprehensive project management services for the project, involving the design management of several specialist design consultants, oversight of tender awards and supervision of dozens of contractors.
The total project value over 10 years will be around $3 billion. Total consultancy fee value for the initial three-year contract will amount to A$11 million of which SMEC’s fees will be in the region of A$8 million.
The project is expected to last for an initial contract period: of three years with a possible extension: for up to an additional seven years.
SMEC’s project portfolio in the Arabian Gulf has been growing for some years with major contracts in buildings, transport, water and environmental protection. The company’s regional headquarters are in Qatar with representative and project offices in Kuwait and Abu Dhabi.

Kuwait University

The Government of Kuwait has generously given Kuwait University 500 hectares of land in Al Shadidiyah, adjacent to Ring Road 6, on which to develop a new University City complete with a medical campus.

The Government mandates that University City be fully developed, completed and occupied in 10 years time. Turner Projacs, as program manager for all university construction, is working closely with Kuwait University Planning Department, to pre-qualify and recommend a campus master planning professional. The selected master planner is expected to be under contract by October and to have the plan completed by November, 2005.

It is envisioned that the new University City will allow for consolidation of the various campuses currently spread throughout Kuwait into one mega-campus that will serve the projected student population growth of the university over the next 30 years.

Apparently, in addition to a co-ed medical faculty campus, they are building 2 segregated campuses, one for males and one for females.

What a waste. They might as well start building two separate workplaces as well everywhere in govt. sector, and, force it onto the private sector, one to house female workers, one to house male workers.

Might as well ban women from education altogether.

Might as well lock them in homes and invite the Taliban to run for parliamentary elections too.

you go to KU?

I really feel strongly that the Emir should stand up to these MPs and tell them, no this is not a Taliban state, you can gladly join them if that is the kind of world you want.

But they dont do it :eek:hno:

Its like they're scared.

yes i go to KU, and yes they are scared... they have money, an ideology and weapons maybe bombs!
bombs in kuwait? no way.

the govt. has even more money. they have the govt. machinery, they have american backing, they have oil, they have all the land, they have the authority!

i dont think they should be scared, the govt. can be strong, if they become a bit courageous, they can easily change things and shut out these people. kuwaits a small peaceful country with a small population, easy to control and manage.

if only they could be a bit more courageous.
