SJIF awards Hill $400mn contract for university hospital project in Jordan

The firm will deliver project construction management services in partnership with Dar Al Omran

The Saudi Jordanian Investment Fund (SJIF) has awarded a contract to Hill International for a $400mn healthcare project in Amman, Jordan. It will be implemented on a build-operate-transfer (BOT) model and will see ownership transferred to the Jordanian government at the end of the investment period.

The university hospital project will have a built-up area of 110,000sqm and will comprise 330 beds, 72 outpatient clinics, a children’s hospital, and a medical school with a total capacity for 600 students.

As per the terms of the contract, Hill International will provide project construction management services in partnership with the local sub-consultant Dar Al Omran.

In May 2022, AlShahd Jordan Real Estate Development Company said that infrastructure works were completed on its AlShahd 2 project.

Last month, SJIF’s unit, the Saudi Jordanian Fund for Medical and Educational Investments Company (SJFMEI), created a joint venture of Dar Al Handasah (Shair and Partners) and Perkins & Will International to carry out engineering design and supervision services for the project.

“We are very excited to be selected to work with SJFMEI on this vital project in the healthcare sector in Jordan and the region. Hill International will work diligently to deliver the highest quality of service in managing this project through leveraging its expertise in the healthcare sector,” said Hill Regional President (Middle East) Abdo Kardous after signing the deal with SJFMEI Chief Executive Dr Mahmoud Sarhan.

The project will be located on the airport road, near the Ghamadan area, and will provide access to patients from across Jordan.

In early August 2022, Hill International was appointed to provide PMC services for Aldar Properties’ projects.

The healthcare facility will be implemented in partnership with two global institutions – the University College London (UCL) Medical School, as the academic partner, and UCLA Health in Los Angeles, California, as the clinical partner.

In early November 2022, project management firm Compass appointed a new Regional Director of Project Management.
