Through a joint venture, AlJaber Engineer LLC and Tekfen Construction have been awarded the contract for the stadium construction in Doha, Qatar.
The signing of the contract was confirmed by the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy, which is the organization responsible for delivering the Qatar 2022 Fifa World Cup stadiums. According to Hilal Al-Kuwari, the committee’s technical delivery chairman:
“We’re pleased to bring together two firms as reputable as AlJaber and Tekfen to deliver such an important project for the SC and Qatar. The awarding of this contract represents another important project milestone, coming at a significant time as Qatar and the SC move beyond the halfway point in its World Cup journey.
“The appointment of a local company in this joint venture also demonstrates our commitment to ensuring the economic legacy for Qatar, post 2022.”
The stadium construction is said to be completed by 2020, which is two years before the World Cup. Specifically located near the capital, the stadium will be hosting World Cup matches up to the quarter-finals.
