Consultant appointed as project manager and cost consultant on KBZF-funded medical centre in Morocco

Consultant Cyril Sweett has been appointed by the Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Foundation (KBZF) to work on a non-profit hospital in Casablanca, Morocco. The firm will undertake project and commercial management and cost consultancy services for the design and construction of the H.H Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nehayan specialised medical centre.

The medical centre is being funded by KBZF as part of an Islamic benevolent fund, through which a charitable donation was made by the Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nehayan on behalf of the people of the UAE to Morocco. The hospital aims to provide a cutting edge medical facility focussing on accident & emergency, cancer and cardiac care. 

Vincent Carew, executive director at Cyril Sweett, said: “This project is an advanced healthcare project which will present a series of challenges and risks. However, given our experience and track record in the successful delivery of major healthcare developments across the globe, Cyril Sweett is well positioned to manage the delivery of this facility to the expectations of our client, KBZF.”

The firm is currently providing services on a number of major healthcare facilities in the Middle East including Al Ain Hospital, Lifeline Hospital, Al Badie General Hospital and ADNOC Medical Centre, Office Tower & Guesthouse.

Cyril Sweett was also recently cost consultant on the Emirate Investment Authorities and KBZF’s new headquarters in Abu Dhabi.
