THE CONSTRUCTION AND THE FIRE PROTECTION INDUSTRY IN KUWAIT
The past half decade in Kuwait has witnessed a stable 3.5% national GDP growth. This economic security is something that has clearly been recognised by the Kuwait National Government; It has recently been reported that a huge $7.2 billion has been earmarked by the Government alone for construction projects and infrastructure developments for 2016, and more impressively, as it stands, there is $47 billion worth of projects under planning and construction phases.
Clearly, the degradation in the price of oil isn’t condemning the Kuwaiti economy: In fact, Kuwait is prospering. It has been predicted that over the next 4 years, in the run up to 2020, the rise in real GDP will be almost three-fold. This economic growth is visually being reflected in the busy construction industry that is inline with the government’s strategy to improve the country’s infrastructure.
Several major projects that are underway, to name just a few, include the $7 billion expansion of Kuwait’s International Airport that will soon be able to cater for a whopping 25 million passengers a year, there too is a $7 billion project to develop a Kuwaiti Metro system estimated to cover 171 kilometers and, of course, the $925 million upgrade the essential Jahra Street Carriageway.
However, as more infrastructure continues to be developed it is crucial to be developing fire prevention and fire safety measures and equipment along side. The need for effective and reliable fire safety strategies has never been more prevalent. Over the past five years or so, the Middle East has stood witness to a series of devastating fires which has led to the death of many, which tragically, could sadly have been so easily avoided.
Consequently, fire regulations have become ever stricter meaning that ensuring that your building complies with such stringent fire regulations can often result with massive compromises your designs, especially for open plan environments, which today are ever more essential to cater for a lot of people safely and quickly.
AN APPROVED AND RELIABLE SOLUTION: COOPER’S FIRE CURTAINS
