Edamah Property Management Company (EMPC) and Arab Architects officials at the signing ceremony.

Edamah Property Management Company (EMPC), a wholly owned subsidiary of Edamah, has appointed Bahrain-based architectural and engineering firm, Arab Architects, to provide consultancy services in addition to the technical and design assessments for Reef Mall, which is set to undergo a major refurbishment.

 The mall, located in the Malkiya region of the kingdom, also serves the communities of Hamad Town, Sadad, and the upcoming Lawzi area. 

As per the contract, Arab Architects will undertake the required studies to evaluate the mall from architectural, structural, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing perspectives, following which a phased revamp plan will be initiated.

The closing stage of the six-month contract includes producing detailed drawings and outlining the refurbishment methodology.

EPMC General Manager Waleed Adel Ali said: “The enhancement of Reef Mall is in line with our commitment to developing community spaces around the kingdom by stimulating the local economy and supporting local businesses. Reef Mall caters to a sizeable and largely underserved area of the Southern Governorate and represents an excellent opportunity for eateries, service outlets, and retailers. We are pleased to partner with Arab Architects on this project, given their deep local knowledge and expertise.”

Arab Architects General Manager Mohamed Araiqat said: “We look forward to supporting EPMC to enhance the Reef Mall design, which will help to increase footfall and attract new business. Our award-winning team has been instrumental in several success stories across Bahrain as we strive to improve quality and deliver innovation in the most efficient way possible.”
