Bahrain Review

Backed by generous support from the GCC, Bahrain’s economy is set to bounce back with a number of new housing cities planned and projects in other sectors worth billions of dollars.

Bahrain projects at a glance:

IT HAS been a busy year for Bahrain’s Ministry of Works (MoW), which spearheaded a number of strategic road projects during 2014 and looks set to launch others this year, buoyed by additional allocations from the GCC Fund. Among the largest projects completed by the ministry last year is the BD24.2-million ($64.

GIVEN a mandate to meet the country’s social housing requirements “within the shortest possible time”, Bahrain’s Ministry of Housing (MoH) is pressing ahead with ambitious plans to build some 40,000 homes on a fast-track basis.

CONSTRUCTION work is well under way on a purpose-built campus to house the Indian Embassy in Seef, Bahrain. Overseen by the embassy, the BD2.8-million ($7.4 million) project is being executed on a 7,598-sq-m site by the local firm Abdul Rahman Al Mansoori (ARM) Contracting Company.

BUOYED by the anticipated growth in the residential and real estate sectors due to strong demand for housing and equipped with new technology, modern machinery and highly qualified, experienced expertise, the Haji Hassan Group (HHG) of Bahrain is well poised to enter the New Year with renewed optimism.

BAHRAIN-based Paschal Concrete Forms says numerous contractors in the country are now using modular formwork from its parent company Paschal Werk G Maier, having realised the many benefits of using these systems on their projects.

AS IT celebrates its 10th anniversary this year, Reynaers Middle East says it has seen exponential growth with the Bahrain office having grown 500 per cent over the past seven years. Over the last couple of years, the aluminium systems specialist has also opened two offices in Egypt and the UAE.
