Msheireb Properties has appointed Qatari Arabian Construction Company as the main building contractor for a key section of the Msheireb Downtown Doha development
Valued at US$90.7mn, the construction company will undertake a restoration and construction contract on the 110,000 square metre heritage quarter.
The plan will involve restoring four historical heritage houses to museums, renovating an Eid prayer ground and rebuilding a mosque that dates back to the first decade of the 20th century.
“This contract is a major component of the regeneration of downtown Doha,” said Mohammad Al Marri, chief officer for design and delivery at Msheireb Properties.
"The four courtyard houses, including the home of Mohammed Bin Jassim, son of Qatar’s founder, will provide the centerpiece, preserving significant aspects of Qatar's history and shared memories," Al Marri remarked.
Christopher Blair, executive manager of Qatari Arabian Construction Company, commented, “We’re committed to the highest standards and to delivering a project that matches the expectations of everyone connected with what will be the world’s largest sustainable community on completion.”
Built on a 310,000 square metre site, Msheireb Downtown Doha is intended to revive the old commercial centre of Qatar’s capital using sustainable technologies, and traditional building practices and architecture.
