Drake & Scull wins key Qatar deal
Doha, February 19, 2013
Drake & Scull Qatar (DSI Qatar), a wholly owned subsidiary of Drake & Scull International (DSI), has won a contract worth over QR300 million for the design, supply, installation and commissioning of all MEP works for a mix-use real estate project in Doha.
DSI is a regional market leader in integrated design, engineering and construction disciplines of civil contracting, mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP), water and power, rail and oil and gas.
The project mainly covers substructure and superstructure works within a 260,000 sq m built-up area encompassing three superblocks with various structures such as residential buildings, schools, utilities, offices and retail buildings.
DSI Qatar, meanwhile, is currently showcasing its high-profile projects and sharing key insights on emerging industry trends during its participation at the Meed Qatar Conference 2013.
Karem Akawi, area general manager, Drake & Scull Qatar, said: “The development serves as one of our flagship projects in Qatar that strongly demonstrates the full spectrum of our service portfolio. Our integrated EPC solutions and particularly the MEP and the Water & Power are vital factors that will strengthen our presence in Qatar, which we expect to develop into a long-term market on par with other regional powerhouse markets such as KSA and the UAE.
“The gradual roll-out of the ambitious infrastructure development program related to Doha’s hosting of the World Cup in 2022 and the Qatar National Vision 2030 is a key factor that is driving market growth. In addition, there is also the rail side that is coming on stream – another priority project of the government that is part of our target areas.” -TradeArabia News Service
