THE Lebanese government is inviting contractors to prequalify for a contract to rehabilitate and extend the Rashid Karami International Fair complex in Tripoli.
Some structural and infrastructure work had been completed before the Lebanese civil war stopped work in 1975.
The contract will be let on a build, operate and transfer basis and includes extensive rehab work, plus a new five-star hotel.
The deadline for applications is March 10, with shortlisted consortia picking up tender documents on March 31.
The address is: Dar Al-Handasah-Shair, Dar Al-Handasah Building, Verdun Street, Ras Beirut, Beirut. 00961 1 869011.
