One of the towers will include a 260-bed hotel with four restaurants, a pool, boutique retail units and conference and business facilities. The remaining two towers will house 79 serviced apartments with five-bed sky villas at the highest levels, swimming pool, fitness centre, reception area, cinema theatre and a playground.

The company CEO Khaldoun Tabari said, “Winning this contract is a major step towards strengthening our presence in Jordan where the King Hussein Medical City was one of our key breakthroughs.

“The new contract underscores our successful history in offering specialised MEP services and reinforces our position as the preferred provider of integrated engineering services across the regional hospitality sector.”
