A new state-of-the-art academic building will be built at RCSI Bahrain.

The Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland – Medical University of Bahrain (RCSI Bahrain) has awarded a $45-million contract to leading construction group Nass Corporation for carrying out expansion work at its campus.

On completion, it will add a new state-of-the-art academic building designed to address the growing demand for advanced medical education and research facilities along with the addition of 7,912 sq m of usable space that will house enhanced teaching facilities, cutting-edge research labs, a modern library, social spaces, and a spacious event hall.

The expansion plan comes as RCSI Bahrain marks its 20th anniversary celebrations. Emphasising a vested commitment towards sustainability, the project includes adopting low-carbon transportation options through bike racks and EV charging stations.  Beyond this, the design will incorporate energy-efficient features such as solar panels, LED lighting and water conservation systems, with a focus on incorporating heat-reduction practices through the incorporation of native plants and green spaces into the landscape.

Unveiling the key expansion plan, RCSI Bahrain said it will see an additional $102 million being invested in the campus over the next four years.
