Kuwait hospital expansion project to use Aconex management platform
Aconex will offer SHBC its easy-to-use cloud and mobile collaboration platform to enable all project team members to have access to up-to-date project information at any time.
"The main benefit of using Aconex is having all of the project documents stored in one centralized location," Muntasir Abu Omar, project director, said. "Nothing can be deleted, and it is easy to find and retrieve any item of correspondence, document or task."
Among other features of the project management platform are drag-and-drop workflows, automated document transmittals, project-wide visibility into the performance of all organizations involved and the ability to create, share and update multidimensional models through building information modeling.
An initiative of the Kuwait Ministry of Health, the Al Farwaniya Hospital expansion project is expected to cost $928 million and will consist of a new hospital with 955 beds, a dental facility with 157 clinics, an outpatient clinic for physical therapy, a services building and a car park that will be able to accommodate up to 1,400 vehicles.
