A topping-out ceremony was held at the construction site of the new US$600mn Mafraq Hospital in Abu Dhabi marking completion of structural concrete frameworks for the hospital’s bed towers
The new Mafraq Hospital, which has been set up by Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA), is being built by the Habtoor Leighton Group, which has joined forces with Murray & Roberts Contractors Middle East (HLMR) on the construction project.
"The new Mafraq hospital is a leading example of the coordination that occurs between quality improvements in safety and efficiency, improved information and intelligence systems, and responsible operations management. It has been planned and designed as a masterpiece and will be one of the cornerstones of healthcare provision in the UAE,” said Al Hameli.
"The completion of the structural concrete framework for the towers is the achievement of a significant milestone at the project, and is being followed by the installation of the facade as well as carrying out of fit-out works in the buildings."
The ceremony was rounded off with SEHA presenting more than 20 awards to employees in recognition of the work they have put into the project.
Mark Andrews, managing director of Murray and Roberts Contractors Middle East (M&R), said, "Mafraq Hospital is a state of the art facility being built to world class standards.
"I congratulate the HLMR JV Project Team, along with those of SEHA and their Professional Advisors, Allen & Shariff Corporation and Burt Hill/Stantec, in reaching this important and symbolic milestone. We look forward to continuing our collaborative efforts in achieving a successful outcome to this demanding project."
