The planning and designs required for the maintenance of 25 government schools in various Governorates, costing BD1,800,000, has been completed, said Huda Mirza, Building Maintenance Director at the Ministry of Works.
The maintenance works are part of the complete 2018 maintenance programme, agreed upon with the Ministry of Education.
Mirza stated that the Ministry has prepared a detailed work scheme for the project, in addition to completion of the engineering designs for the 25 schools, in coordination with specialised persons from the Ministry of Education.
The maintenance works are to commence early in May and are scheduled for completion before the start of the new academic year 2018-2019.
According to Mirza, the Ministry seeks to gradually transform all government buildings, including schools, into environment-friendly buildings in order to preserve energy and natural resources in the Kingdom.
The maintenance works comprise civil, mechanical and electrical works, internal and external painting works, revamping toilets, fixing doors and windows, replacing electricity and water extensions and damaged health tools. In addition to these, the old lighting system at some schools have to be replaced with power-saving lighting.
Maintenance works are to be implemented by qualified and experienced contractors registered at the Ministry of Works, Municipalities Affairs & Urban Planning.
