Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development has awarded the contract for the completion of the Sidra Medical and Research Centre (Sidra) to a joint venture between MIDMAC W.L.L. and Consolidated Contractors Group S.A.L. (Offshore) (CCC).
MIDMAC is one of Qatar’s largest contracting organizations, while CCC is one of the biggest and most well-regarded engineering and construction companies in the Middle East region. Both companies have proven track records in delivering vast and challenging projects.
The new agreement follows the recent termination of the contract awarded to the OHL Internacional / Contrack (Cyprus) Ltd. Joint Venture in 2008 for the design and construction of Sidra project.
The MIDMAC/CCC Joint Venture expects to commence its operations imminently, and hopes to employ a number of sub-contractors previously engaged by the OHL/Contrack Joint Venture, thereby preserving the knowledge of the Sidra facilities and expertise which has been accumulated thus far.
Sidra, located at Qatar Foundation’s campus, Doha, is of considerable strategic importance for the people of Qatar, as the nation continues its journey towards the realization of a knowledge economy. The facility has three essential missions: world-class patient care, medical education, and biomedical research, and aims to be a regional leader in both the provision of, and innovation behind, the highest quality of healthcare.
