Shaping Skylines: Building Bahrain's Innovative Future

How do you successfully manage the challenges of construction, strategic planning, and regulatory compliance in Bahrain's real estate sector? Integrating cutting-edge building techniques, detailed planning, and strict adherence to Bahrain's legal standards is essential for pioneering property development in the Kingdom.

The Kingdom of Bahrain emphasizes the implementation of its Urban Planning Strategies and sustainable urban development policy, diligently working on detailed and structural plans across various regions. The Kingdom is also engaged in formulating and applying a national plan to Regulate the Real Estate sector (PDF, 710KB, 3 pages, Arabic only). This process includes the thorough collection, analysis, and statistical handling of data and information pertinent to real estate.

Bahrain also emphasizes providing the physical infrastructure that improves the quality of life for all citizens and residents of the country through major road network construction and development. This infrastructure supports national development goals by maximizing the potential of the Kingdom for economic progress.

Keeping pace with rapid progress and the enhancement of service levels, Bahrain's Urban Planning and Development Authority (UPDA) has introduced the Urban Planning Services Portal ( This portal is a centralized system that offers diverse planning services for all projects within the Kingdom, streamlining the process and increasing efficiency.

In a move to provide comprehensive, precise, and up-to-date information that accurately represents the Real Estate sector's state in Bahrain, the Real Estate Regulatory Authority has provided the National Real Estate DataBank (Aqari). Aqari is a pioneering national system designated as the prime repository of real estate data in Bahrain. It utilizes standardized criteria for real estate information classification, ensuring easy exchange, integration, and consistency of data.

Benayat building permit portal is a one-stop platform that streamlines the construction process in the Kingdom of Bahrain through Public and public-private partnerships and provides a guided and end-to-end process in one single window. Through its integration and auto-validations with Bahrain’s GIS data, Benayat has provided unbiased handling of construction and building permits.

The Bahrain Vision 2030 (PDF, 278KB, 26 pages) seek to preserve, protect, and manage this historical heritage and encourage public awareness about the inherent value of this historical heritage. The vision further urges the creation of a list of historical sites, which will then be studied and classified within a legal framework for the purpose of protection and preservation in line with UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Since 2010, The Ministry of Works has been working to implement Sustainability and Green Building requirements in Bahrain buildings and infrastructure construction.
