Bahrain, the third smallest nation in the region but boasts one of the fastest growing economies in the Arab world. With some of the most ambitious upcoming projects in the region, the challenge remains - how do we navigate to achieve innovative designs, high-quality construction and on-time delivery.
During the past decades, the Gulf coastline has undergone significant changes, with hundreds of new marine projects being constructed including reclamation of artificial islands, shoreline stabilisations, waterfront developments, ports and marinas and artificial beaches. The speed at which these projects have been conceived and constructed under the lead of the local governments is unprecedented.
