Contracts worth QAR40 billion signed by Ministry of Public Works

Qatar today took its most significant step yet in preparations for the 2022 World Cup, when the ministry of public works, Ashghal, signed agreements for the execution of infrastructure projects worth QAR40 billion.

The signing also marks the highest value contract for Hyder Consulting, with the firm’s chief executive, regional managing  director and Qatar office manager present.

The agreement, the highest value in the history of the country, is for a massive interconnected infrastructure network that will be delivered over the next five years, covering all five zones of the state.

The project focuses on establishing road networks and wastewater treatment facilities as part of the Qatar’s National Development Plan, and lays the foundations for meeting development targets ahead of the World Cup.

“This is an important milestone in the infrastructure of the state of Qatar. I think this strategy and the value of the agreement we have signed today with leading consultants, shows the commitment of the state of Qatar towards developing the infrastructure of the country,” said president of the public works authority, Engr. Nasser Ali Al-Mawalawi at the signing.

“It’s really important because these are framework agreements over five to seven years to develop the design and then supervise and manage all the infrastructure projects that relate to the public works,” Al-Mawalawi added.

Hyder chief executive Ivor Catto told The Big Project that a team had already been mobilised in the country and is working closely with the authorities and project partners.

December issue of The Big Project will feature a full analysis of the contracts and works and interviews with Hyder chief executive Ivor Catto and regional manager Wael Allen
