Contractor will lead construction of 31 hectare mixed-use scheme

A Carillion-led joint venture has won a mammoth £395m contract to build a 31 hectare mixed-use scheme in the heart of Doha, Qatar.

The UK-based contractor will lead construction of the scheme – which will comprise retail, commercial, residential, leisure, cultural and community facilities – as part of an 80:20 joint venture with Qatar Building Company.

The project will form part of the Msheireb Downtown Doha project developed by Msheireb Properties, a subsidiary of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development.

Carillion group chief executive, John McDonough, said: “We are delighted to have been selected to deliver this prestigious project, which will make a major contribution to the regeneration of the centre of Doha. 

“We look forward to working with Msheireb Properties to deliver a visionary solution that will meet the high standards of sustainability that have been set for this transformational development.”
