China firm to build one of largest education campus in the world

The $580million worth contract for building the government-run Sabah Al Salem University City has been assigned to the Middle East unit of China's State Construction Engineering Corporation (CSCEC).

The engineering firm will be responsible for construction, operation and maintenance of the management facilities of the project, which is likely to be one of the world’s largest campuses featuring world-class educational facilities.

On completion, it will comprise seven unique-shaped buildings, which include an administration building, a convocation hall, a cultural centre, a conference centre, a visitor centre, a university library and a grand Mosque. The administration building would be designed with light screens that reflect an interactive shadow and light effect.

The Sabah Al Salem University City is the second largest project secured by CSCEC’s Middle East division.

The main objective of this project is that the new University would be developed to offer world-class educational facilities equipped with most advanced learning resources, for preparing human resources for overall future development of Kuwait. This campus would be the hub for education and a knowledge destination in future.

Sabah Al Salem University City is located in south-west of Kuwait City where the 6million square metres plot was allocated to the University City. The new University City has been designed on east-west axis with main campus on east and health sciences campus on the west.
