A national vision
Ashghal appointed Mace alongside our joint venture partner EC Harris to deliver major programmes, portfolios and projects for Qatar’s future, the value of the works are in excess of £7 Billion. This was a groundbreaking moment for Mace and testament to our reputation on projects and programmes such as the London Olympics, New Doha International Airport and the Shard in London.
Qatar is fast becoming a hub within the Middle East focusing on heritage, culture, sports and education this has directly translated itself into this programme of works. The scale, complexity and diversity of this work is astounding; ranging from a world class zoo to leading health facilities and the next generation of educational facilities for Qatar. This programme gives us a unique opportunity to demonstrate on a global scale how JV collaboration and partnership with our clients can deliver a plethora of vastly differing projects and portfolios under one umbrella, Ashghal.
“This appointment is a unique opportunity to facilitate the development of the public works landscape across Qatar and we are thrilled to be part of the delivery team. The size and scope of the infrastructure project will provide the opportunity to demonstrate how collaboration and partnership can produce a scheme of innovation that places the country’s society at the heart of the project”
