Construction during COVID – 19 epidemic, and its impact on the progress work on the project.
With the team at Kooheji Contractors, we have identified 400 workers to carry out the construction work, with applying the social distancing system in the work plan by distributing workers over two work periods to ensure the project is achieved within its timeline. Also, we have allocated more than one housing for workers to ensure their safety and distribute them to residential units as precautionary measures and a guarantee of social distance.
Bahrain government has taken an effective strategic approach in maintaining the situation under control, which has contributed to the continuation of the construction sector. Even though there is an effect on the current timeline as a result of the COVID-19 epidemic. But compared to the rest of the countries especially since there was no complete lockdown, the construction work is still ongoing, with the effect being minimal. Despite the current situation, we have made great progress in the project.
The government of Bahrain has reacted proactively to the crisis, enabling it to contain the crisis with a coherent strategy. The Central Bank of Bahrain and the Real Estate Regulatory Association regulations have ensured that the real estate sector remains stable in the current crisis. Bahrain has a better position in recovering from this crisis, as the government reacted proactively. Thanks to the Supreme Coordination Committee chaired by His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad AlKhalifa, Crown Prince, Deputy Supreme Commander, first Deputy Prime Minister. And the instructions it issued continuously that enabled it to deal with the crisis strategically and tightly. This is in addition to the directives of His Majesty to address the resulting economic impacts. And the government announcement to pay the salaries of Bahraini citizens working in the private sector for April, May, and June. Which contributed to reducing the impacts of the crisis on the sector.
The real estate sector remains a strong investment tool resistant to crises and Kooheji Development as a real estate developer, has created a distinguished real estate product. Thanks to the experiences we have gained through developing many residential and commercial projects. Including our own projects as a developer, including projects for other developers in the Kingdom of Bahrain. Which enhanced our capabilities to provide high-quality world-class real estate projects. Managing our properties through the operational arm of the group “Royal Ambassador” which manages the group residential properties and provides five-star hospitality services to the residents we maintained high occupancy rate across our residential projects, which provides the best return on investment to the owners, and positioned us as the best option due to the strong and stable position in the Bahrain real estate sector.
