Kuwait Authority For Partnership Projects (KAPP) has announced that the last date for submitting the request for proposals (RFPs) for the South Jahra Labour City Project has been extended to November 15 this year owing to the Covid-19 crisis.

KAPP is developing the project in collaboration with the Kuwait Municipality in line with the government’s direction to promote the public private partnership programme in Kuwait.
 
The scope of work involves the design, finance, build, operate, maintain and transfer to the state according to the provisions of law No 116 of 2014, its executive regulations and other laws related to KAPP and other relevant laws, said a statement from the Authority.
The proposed labour city will come up over a sprawling 1.02 million sq m area in South Al Jahra region of Kuwait featuring several integrated components including residential areas, commercial and neighborhood and community services along with other municipal and utilities services.
 
The terms of the contract with Kuwait Municipality is expected to be for 40 years including a three-year construction period, stated the KAPP statement.
 
The ambitious KAPP project aims to improve the living conditions of low-income expatriates by providing adequate and affordable housing for 20,000 expatriate labourers, while rehabilitating Kuwaiti neighbourhoods in and around current worker residents, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
