KUWAIT CITY, Oct 10: Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) has completed the construction of 159 new homes in Ahmadi City as part of the company’s efforts to provide adequate and modern housing for the company’s employees, reports Al-Anba daily. The construction of these houses in South Ahmadi was completed according to three modern and sophisticated models. However, the heritage of the city on which it was built in the past was preserved.
According to an official source from KOC, the task of developing Ahmadi City is not easy. While preserving the heritage of the city on which it was originally built, it is required to develop it using the latest technology in the world in order to join the list of modern integrated smart cities. The project to develop and build new homes in Ahmadi represents the first stage within the framework of a huge housing project. The future stages of this project include the construction of 1,800 housing units with integrated service facilities, which would achieve the company’s goal of upgrading the city of Ahmadi and providing adequate housing care for its employees.
The new homes have been designed to meet all the living needs of their residents, while at the same time preserving the distinctive architectural and heritage character of Ahmadi City. It is worth mentioning that Ahmadi City, since its inception, has been associated with KOC, which has a leading position in the society and has wellknown economic and social roles. The city will witness a large-scale development movement in the near future within the framework of the Ahmadi City Development Project, which is one of the vital projects of the state. This project aims to rehabilitate and develop the city in line with its historical status and of being the oil city in Kuwait.
