Kuwait – Eng. Elham Al-Shammari, the project engineer for the demolition, reconstruction and maintenance of five external business licensing centers at the Ministry of Public Works, announced that the ministry is currently implementing the project, Al-Anba daily reports. .
In a press release, she disclosed that the centers will be located in five different locations in various governorates of Kuwait. Eng. Al-Shammari said: “Hawally Center belongs to Hawally Governorate, Khaitan Center to Farwaniya Governorate, Mansouriya Center to Capital Governorate, Al-Dhahr Center to Ahmadi Governorate and Al-Ayoun Center to Jahra. Each building consists of a basement, a ground floor, first and second floors and the roof.
The ground floor will have halls to receive customers, and the first and second floors will have the office for employees and for “VIP” services. Each center is of different sizes, with the largest center being the Hawally center and the smallest being the Al-Dhahr and Mansouriya centers.
The centers will be characterized by the presence of the latest technologies compared to the old one that was demolished. Display screens will be installed in the reception halls and surveillance cameras on each floor. There will be elevators in each center and the buildings will be electronically linked via the Internet”.
Regarding the modern exterior specifications of the buildings, she said, “The buildings are characterized by modern specifications such as fire and emergency systems at entrances and exits, and electricity generators. As for the aesthetic aspect, the logo of the Ministry of Trade and Industry will be on the facades of the buildings and will reflect the Kuwaiti heritage, in addition to the signs that will be in the offices of the employees. The reinforced concrete floors of each building will contribute to the durability and warmth of the building to make them soundproof and prevent the passage of air.
Currently, excavation and reinforcement works are underway in the center of Mansouriya and concrete pouring works in the center of Al-Ayoun. The project is executed under the direct supervision of the apparatus of the ministry.
In addition, the design aspect has taken into account the need for energy saving through the facades which contain a high quality glass structure that absorbs sunlight and is characterized by a shading ratio, which helps to reflect the rays. There is also a “skylight” in each building to provide natural lighting for a large area. For the air conditioning system, the chosen cooling gas complies with the conditions and standards of the Ministry of Electricity and Water. Efforts have been made to reduce carbon emissions and environmental pollution by using a thermal insulation system that works to retain heat inside buildings”.
