Keppie Design together with Detac Construction, The Arab Academy and Bareeq Capital has been selected to design Egypt’s first PPP Healthcare Project.
The public private partnership competition lasted eighteen months and will see the construction of a 200-bed Gynaecology and Obstetrics University Hospital, a 223-bed facility near Mowassat Hospital, and the existing Smouha Hospital gain a blood bank and Paediatric and Emergency Facility. All of the schemes are located in Egypt’s second largest city, Alexandria.
Speaking on the decision, Omar Elkeshen of the Arab Academy, said: “Keppie’s vast experience in PPP and healthcare, allied to their excellent design proposals, made them the best choice from a very competitive, multinational design competition. We look forward to working with them to deliver Egypt’s first healthcare PPP project.”
