W.S. Atkins PLC set to start construction on Durrat Island in Bahrain

BAHRAIN, UAE

Phase-three construction of Bahrain’s artificial, 20-square-kilometre Durrat Island will start next year following a recent design contract award to the local office of U.K.-based W.S. Atkins PLC by owner Durrat Khaleej al Bahrain.

The project, covering 800,000 square metres, includes 570 homes and associated facilities on the last four of 13 planned islands. The first two phases are in construction following the start of design in 2004.
