Atkins appointed to Kuwaiti masterplan

Atkins in Kuwait has signed a major sanitary masterplan contract with the Kuwait Ministry of Public Works. The consultancy was awarded the multi-million dollar contract in partnership with the local company SSH.

The official signing ceremony took place last week in the offices of the Kuwaiti Ministry of Public Works and was attended by the country’s Deputy Prime Minister Sheikh Ahmed Al Fahed, Minister for Public Works Dr Fadel Safar, and Atkins’ General Manager in Kuwait Bryan Willey.

Graham Warder, Atkins’ Project Director commended the Ministry for their holistic approach saying: “Kuwait is a great example of a State that is actively improving its infrastructure network. We are delighted that the Municipality recognises our partnership approach and our ability to deliver technically demanding projects.”

The masterplan will develop a national strategy for the upgrade of the current sanitation system for the State of Kuwait, covering an area of 17,818 sq km. Delivery of the study and proposals is scheduled for December 2011. The Ministry of Public Works sees the masterplan as a key strategy document for the future development and growth of the country. “Through our local presence and previous work on the study, Atkins and our local partner SSH are well placed to assist the Ministry in resolving their local issues in water supply, environment and sanitation issues,” concludes Warder.

Alongside the Kuwait Public Transport Masterplan, Atkins has a growing portfolio of politically important and strategic projects that will guide the development and growth of Kuwait over the next 20 years.
