Qatar’s Public Works Authority (Ashghal) has issued a tender for the construction and maintenance of two new labour accommodation blocks.

The accommodation will be built for the Municipality and Urban Planning Ministry in the Al-Shamal Municipality in Qatar.

The tender calls for the construction of two 19-bedroom blocks, with the buildings also including kitchens, sitting/dining rooms and bathrooms.

The project also includes construction of a guard’s block, along with the associated mechanical, electrical, plumbing and drainage services.

The tender bond for companies is QR300,000 ($82,400), and the deadline for applications is 24 December.

Earlier this month, Ashghal awarded the local office of KEO International Consultants with US-based HHCP+PJA a $63m contract for the design and construction supervision of the New Doha Zoo project. The appointment follows on from Ashghal selecting HHCP+PJA to develop a concept masterplan for the zoo in December 2012.
