Civil works at 35 Doha metro stations ‘complete’

By Ayman Adly-Staff Reporter

Civil works of some of the 35 stations of the Doha Metro Project have been accomplished, a senior official of the Qatar Railways Company (Qatar Rail) said on Wednesday.

“Qatar Rail is also keen to maintain the concept of sustainability and environment friendly construction and all our contractors have four-star rating in this regard,” deputy CEO Hamad al-Bishri explained.

He was addressing the first industry awareness day for Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) companies that was attended by almost 300 representatives from both local and international firms. The open meeting was aimed at getting to know the capabilities of such companies to pre-qualify for Qatar rail projects as subcontractors for the main project contractors.

“We will continue holding such meetings with both local and international companies because we need great and continuous support from all potential qualified partners to accomplish our massive project,” affirmed al-Bishri.

He said the project has multiple phases and involved a myriad of works; architectural, civil, mechanical, electrical, excavation and others. However, the project is proceeding well according to the scheduled plan.

The meeting was also a good opportunity for local companies to meet their counterparts of international companies and study the possibility of forming consortiums or joint ventures. More info
