Faithful+Gould will review MPW’s existing organisation and project management methods before developing a tailor-made project control system. This will underpin a more centralised and standardised approach to planning, design, procurement, construction and operation of built environment assets. The aim is to enable MPW to maximise its capabilities to deliver international best practice.
The project management office is to provide MPW with an improved understanding and control of projects throughout their entire lifecycle.
The second phase of Faithful+Gould’s contract will include the training of 180 MPW staff to operate and manage projects using the new system.
Campbell Gray, Faithful+Gould’s managing director for the Middle East, said: “We’re very proud to be supporting the Ministry of Public Works (MPW) in the vital role it is undertaking. The training of local professionals is essential to the success of this project and highlights MPW’s determination to embed the new system and practices into its buildings sector. This is part of an excellent wider initiative in Kuwait, where incoming consultancies are required to contribute to the country’s investment in training and professional development.”
Kuwait’s Ministry of Public Works (MPW) has made it a priority to ensure the nation’s infrastructure keeps pace with its fast-growing economy. MPW is responsible for managing the study, design and construction of all types of capital projects throughout Kuwait.
