HLG wins $74m healthcare contract

Contractor to work on second healthcare project in Saudi Arabia at KFMC

Habtoor Leighton Group, operating as Leighton Middle East Contracting, has been awarded a second healthcare contract in Saudi Arabia, worth $74m, at the King Fahad Medical City.

The project will see the delivery of the first Proton Therapy Centre in the Gulf region, and will be delivered in a 50/50 joint venture with Al Latifa Trading and Contracting.

“The Proton Therapy Centre will be located in Riyadh and is part of the Ministry of Health King Fahad Medical City Prince Salmon Heart Centre Expansion project,” said Ayed Awadh Alqahtani.

“Known as the PPNNCC, the project involves the construction of new medical centres on the current King Fahad Medical City campus. KFMC is also setting the trend of building tertiary facilities in the region,” he added.

HLG’s managing director, Jose Antonio Lopez, said the delivery of the Proton Therapy Centre will provide Saudi Arabia and its GCC neighbours with access to the best cancer treatment in the world.

Built across three levels, the Proton Therapy Centre will include two basement levels and a ground floor entrance. Although it is linked to the main hospital building and new Central Services Building, the centre is separately contained.

The Central Services Building will also provide electrical and mechanical services to the main King Fahad Medical City project. It is also being delivered by HLG.

Construction is set to commence later this year, with the Proton Therapy Centre, along with the Central Services Building, set to be completed within 18 months, so as to allow the installation and commissioning of equipment.
