Drake & Scull International, the regional construction contractor, has signed a $49 million MEP contract for a residential development in Qatar, the company announced on Wednesday.
Work on the project is due to start immediately, with an estimated completion date in the fourth quarter of 2014. DSI operate across a number of disciplines, including Civil Contracting, MEP, Water and Power and Rail.
Zeina Tabari, chief corporate affairs officer, said that more details on the project will be released shortly.
Earlier this year, the contractor’s Doha subsidiary, Drake and Scull Qatar, was awarded an $82 million contract for the design, supply, installation and commissioning of all MEP works at a mixed used real estate development project in Doha.
That project would cover substructure and superstructure works within a 260,000sqm built up area that encompassed three superblocks. Various structures such as residential buildings, schools, utilities and office buildings were also included in the contract.
