  Al Shaheed Park Development - KN contributing to Kuwait’s Green Belt

 
 
 

In 1987, Kuwait had started plans to create a “green belt” around the country to protect it from sand storms, but with time this idea was put aside. Almost 3 decades later, KN is the major player in the first step to regain the green belt idea by designing and rebuilding the Al Shaheed Park in Dasman, one of Kuwait’s biggest parks.

 
 

Kharafi National was awarded the Al Shaheed Park Development project by the Amiri Diwan as the main contractor to design and build the 235,000 square meters park. This is to be a fast-track project for the Facilities Management Institutional and Commercial business of KN, which term of precisely one year commenced April 2013.

On the 25th of April 2013, the project commencement was inaugurated at the park itself with the presence of her highness Sheikha Amthal, Mr. Abdul Aziz Ishaq, the under secretary of the Amiri Diwan, Mr. Marzouk Al Kharafi, and the whole project development team from the KN and The Associated Engineering Partnership (TAEP), which are KN’s partners in the project.

To celebrate the occasion, the Amiri Diwan organized 300 children from the local schools, between the ages of 6 and 8, to come and paint the walls surrounding the entrance to the park itself. Kharafi National prepared the area to greet the 300 children and provide them with the area and painting materials, adopting extreme measures to secure their safety as they painted the walls.

The children were the highlight of the event, as they interacted with her highness Sheikha Amthal and Mr. Marzouk, each portraying their unique interpretation of greenery.

Initially the idea of the green belt may have been to shield the city from the sand storm; 26 years later the reason behind has shifted to being able to provide a green haven for today’s children. 

Kharafi National is extremely pleased to be able to take on this fast-track community project which will contribute immensely to Kuwait’s society, providing one of the only safe and protected areas for children to recreate.
