The MEP contract is for an upcoming major educational institution in Kuwait, which is scheduled to be completed in 2018.

Ahmad Al Naser, managing director of DSE, said in a company statement, “With a growth in non-oil segments and expansion of the consumer sector, the Kuwait real estate sector is currently enjoying a growth upswing and DSE is confident of capitalising on this forward momentum by securing more large-scale projects in Kuwait in the near term.”
