Al-Rushaid added the ministry has taken delivery of the project from the Ministry of Public Works and observations are minimal, indicating it does not affect moving into the building. He stated the most notable work yet to be done is the operation of telephone lines, which will be completed in earnest. “There is a little problem with the parking lots, so steps have since been taken to rectify the situation”. He commended the Ministry of Public Works over successful completion of the wonderful educational edifice.
Meanwhile, Capital Educational Area is facing a problem with the new building in terms of inability to accommodate the entire 1,250 workforce. The building is said to have capacity for only 700 employees and the best part is that some employees will remain at the current location in Khaldiya when others move to the new building
