30-month timeframe for security edifice: Minister
A project to build a national security compound, at a cost of KD 12.74 million, is expected to be completed in 30 months, Minister of Public Works Abdulrahman Al-Mutawa said yesterday. In a speech during a contract-signing ceremony for the project, with Chairman of the National Security Apparatus Sheikh Thamer Al-Ali Al-Sabah in attendance, Mutawa noted that expediting the completion of development projects remains the Ministry of Public Works’ perennial challenge.
Moreover, he urged increased meticulousness on the part of all those involved in these projects in efforts to ensure continued progress and efficiency. On the security building located in Mubarak Al-Abdullah’s diplomatic zone, he revealed that it stretches on 8,000 square meters with six floors, in addition to business offices, a parking lot and three basements. Meanwhile, the ministry’s Undersecretary Awatif Al-Ghunaim said that all parties involved in the construction aspect of the project have given their approval “before the contract was signed.”— KUNA
