Top firms in the race for Bahrain residential projects

Saudi Arabia, April 4, 2018

More than 56 Bahraini and Saudi companies are in the race for two major residential projects in the Wadi Al Sail and Galali areas of the kingdom which are being built for the benefit of BDF affiliates.

Bahrain's Ministry of Housing has opened pre-qualification documents for the construction for these two projects, which are being funded by the Saudi government.

The foundation stone-laying ceremony of both the housing projects was held under the patronage of the commander-in-chief of the Bahrain Defence Force (BDF), Field Marshal Shaikh Khalifa bin Ahmed Al Khalifa in February this year.

The commander-in-chief deputised Defence Affairs Minister, Lieutenant-General Yussef bin Ahmed Al Jalahma, to attend the ceremony.

Al Jalahma asserted that these housing projects were part of an integrated system of services provided by the BDF for its affiliates, in line with the leadership’s directives to provide a decent living, including housing, for its servicemen.

BDF usually offers its affiliates two types of housing services. The first is temporary and is granted to the servicemen until they own their housing units.

The work on the 267-unit Wadi Al Sail project and the 213-unit Galali project will begin in September and is due for completion by the end of 2019.
