The contract with Kuwait's Public Authority for Housing Welfare (PAHW) has an initial period of five years and involves the provision of programme management consultancy services during development of the city. South Al Mutlaa City is a new development on a site of 104 square kilometers west of the capital, Kuwait City. Once completed, the population is expected to reach 400,000.
"We are excited to be an integral member of the Authority's team on this innovative and significant program," said Mohammed Al Rais, regional president (Middle East) for Hill's project management group. "We believe this will be a model for the development of smart cities," added Al Rais.
