Mott MacDonald helps design infrastructure for first bespoke health island, Bahrain

Mott MacDonald has been appointed by Ithmaar Development Company to provide infrastructure design and supervision services for Dilmunia Health Island. The first of its kind, this new health island, anticipated to be worth around $1.6 billion, is set to be an international health and wellness facility in a resort-style environment based on a 125 hectares manmade island off the north-east coast of Bahrain.

Designs for the health island were developed last year and Mott MacDonald's commission will help move the project on to the next stage. The health island is expected to house a state-of-the-art diagnostic centre along with centres for nutrition and diabetes, cosmetic surgery, aesthetic medicine, women and children’s health, alternative medicine as well as a sports medicine centre. Deluxe spas, boutique hotels, residential clusters, commercial facilities and recreational amenities are also included in the concept design.

Mott MacDonald’s team in Bahrain is assigned to design and supervise the construction of all infrastructure services from roads, bridges, power network , water, sewerage and treatment services to a district cooling plant with associated distribution services and a canal which is all due for completion by the mid 2013.

Mott MacDonald’s project director and director for Bahrain, Alan Worley said, “We are absolutely thrilled to be awarded a role on this exciting project by Ithmaar Development Company. It follows successful completion of design work on Al Seef Tower in Manama for the development company and is endorsement of what we hope will be a productive on-going relationship backed by Mott MacDonald’s local knowledge of Bahrain and world-class engineering design and management skills.”
