A G+7, 100-bed hospital, the King’s College Hospital project is valued at $200m (AED734m), with a gross floor area (GFA) of 24,500m2 and a built-up area of 30,500m2.
Project and commercial manager for the hospital, Faithful+Gould has also been appointed to procure three polyclinics for the client. The polyclinics will offer primary care and a full range of secondary outpatient care across all therapeutic areas. King’s College Healthcare Clinic 1 was successfully completed and handed over at the beginning of April 2017, delivered 30% below the client’s original budget. Our adoption of value engineering, collaboration with the design team and efficient execution of our post contract services brought initial costs down by circa AED 4million on the first clinic.
A number of milestones have been reached on the hospital and it is clear to see where we are adding value. We successfully tendered the project as a design & build to meet the client’s timeline for project commencement and brought the main contract in AED 7million under budget.
