Ashghal completes building QU health centre

DOHA, July 3, 2018

Qatar’s Public Works Authority ‘Ashghal’ has announced that it has completed the construction of Qatar University (QU) Health Centre and started the process of handover to the Ministry of Public Health.

The new centre had a total cost of over QR150 million ($40.8 million), since it was built on an area of 23,300 sq m, comprising a four-level main building with a two-level basement designed as a car parking as well as a ground and upper level dedicated for clinics, laboratories, administrative offices and other annexes.

The centre incorporates 36 clinics including 22 for general check-ups, eight for dentistry, two for maternity and two for pre-marriage tests along with other medical specialised services, including emergency, and physiotherapy that comprises a lounge, sports hall, in addition to a meeting hall, a library, a lab, a radiology and a pharmacy.

The centre has been designed to provide comfort to the visitors as the building has four main entrances, one of them is intended for ambulances and emergencies, and two mosques, for gents and ladies alike, along with a 511-space car parking, the biggest ever in any health centre.

Project engineer Ahmad Saleh said that Ashghal fulfilled the project according to the local and international specifications and standards, achieving 3 million man-hours without lost time injury, citing that the health centre is underway to Ministry of Public Health.

“Qatar University Health Centre, besides the health centres of Muaither, Al Wajba and Al Waab, is the fourth clinic delivered since the start of the unfair blockade on Qatar. The health projects have not been affected by the siege, notably, Ashghal was able to accomplish the works in harmony with the criteria submitted by the Ministry of Public Health,” he said.

“The new designs reflect the Qatari heritage and match international safety standards regarding fire protection systems in addition to green buildings and sustainability at a rate of three stars, and the bottom line is that the building is expandable and upgradable in the future according to the updated medical equipment,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
