KFH Chairman, Hamad Abdulmohsen Al Marzouq announced: “We are delighted to celebrate the launch of the reconstruction project for the area damaged in the Al Mubarakiya fire. This follows the successful completion and approval of the design phase by the relevant advisory team dedicated to addressing the effects of the incident.”

Industry sources added that Egis will manage the reconstruction of 17 buildings, along with a complete upgrade of the infrastructure network to meet current standards and comply with the latest regulations.
